Balista Lures are designed using LED technology and flash when in the water. Design in Australia by James Dainton he was looking for a way to increase his catch rates. He tested a variety of LED’s at James Cook University to see if there was a correlation between flashing LED lights and increased feeding activity from fish.
What he found was fascinating. In every experiment he did the Barramundi would always attack the red LED light, it was glaringly obvious that the Barra were fascinated by the red light.
Balista replicate this technology inside high quality made lures for all species of Australian fish, fresh and salt. A few of the models in the range are specifically design for freshwater species including the Smoke, Dyno, Hunchback, Juggernaut and Trigger.
|Rhys' Recommendation: 'Large lipless crankbaits like the Balista Juggernaut 90 are underused by cod anglers. They are a brilliant searching lure when fishing in dams. Rather than casting massive lures it's sometimes good to downsize, especially in summer as the smaller fish (40-80cm) have a higher chance at grabbing a lure of this size. The fish shaped profile makes them extremely realistic.'|
