A Sample Of Our Saltwater Lure Selection
Woody’s can count many very good lure fishermen amongst their customers. They recognize that lure fishing is a method that allows the angler to cover much more water, so enabling them a better opportunity to find that feeding fish. Many of our customers are using this knowledge when sea fishing and so Woody’s have listed below a selection of images of some of the saltwater lures we keep in stock.
It is a great way of targeting fish with the added bonus that a fighting fish does not have to tow the added burden of a one hundred gram plus weight!

We have a large selection of Mackerell Lures including the Sabiki and Tronix lures.
These “gel worm” lures are best fished using a sink and draw technique. Use a barrel lead threaded on the mainline for extra weight. The weight is then “stopped” by a swivel. Next tye a metre of fluorocarbon to the swivel and then a leaded hook on to which is threaded the coloured worm of your choice. Absolutely deadly for most fish.
These “Shad” baits are also best fished on the “sink and draw” principle. Add extra weight, if needed above the fluorocarbon trace etc. John has caught Tarpon to 25 kg in Cuba so it is a technique that works for many species of fish.
These artificial squid or “muppets” as they are sometimes called offer a good alternative on those days when fishing the worm is slow. They can be fished singly or by tying up a string of three or four when boat fishing and then using a Pirk as weight.
We ourselves have fished these eels successfully for forty years. They are particularly good for Pollack Ling, Bass and Cod. If boat fishing then they are best fished on a three metre trace using a “French Boom”. Woody’s will advise the correct method of rigging when you visit the shop.
These Eddystone “cod” lures are not just for cod. They do in fact work very well for Pollack, Ling and of course, Bass. From the pier or beach they are best fished on the sink and draw principle or from a boat, jigging brings the best results.
The use of Fluorocarbon line when making up traces can sometimes offer a big advantage to the fisherman, as fish find it so much more difficult to see. Woody’s keep in stock a variety of sizes from 2.7kg up to 36.3kg. Please remember that double crimps are best used on the heavier sizes as the larger diameter line is difficult to knot. They are an improvement as they offer a neater and stronger attachment. Woody’s will advise.
Many of our customers now use strong monofilament instead of wire for some species of fish. The advantages are obvious as is is not so visible to the fish. Woody’s keep a comprehensive range of monofilament, ranging in sizes from 30kg to 68kg. Woody’s recommend purchasing the correct size of double crimps when securing the stronger lines to hooks or swivels etc. as the thicker lines are difficult to knot in a neat and secure fashion. Economy crimping pliers are available in store.
Some of our sea fishing customer like to use “Amnesia” monofilament for traces when fishing on the bottom of the sea as its “memory free” properties can allow for better bait presentation. Woody’s keep a variety of sizes ranging from 6.8kg – 18.2 kg.
Woody’s keep a good selection of double crimps suitable for crimping most sizes of trace. Economy priced crimping pliers available in store.
