The Oarsome 130 is a minnow or a thin body lure 130mm in body length and comes in three depth options.
The Oarsome 130mm 1mt will troll and cast at 1mt, the Oarsome 130mm 3mt will cast to a depth of approximately 2mts and troll at 3mts, while the Oarsome 130mm 5mt trolls to 5mts and cast to just over 3mts.
Our patent pending, body design, rattle and bib locking system makes this a very strong lure to handle the rigours of fishing for Barramundi, Tiger Fish in Africa, Black Bass in Papua New Guinea as well as blue water species like Spanish Mackerel, GT’s Queenies and other saltwater species.
Our unique body design gives not only strength but a rolling action that can be achieved at the slowest of retrieves or trolled at speeds in excess of 10kph.
The patent pending bib locking system offers superior strength without the use of any glue in the lure assembly.
The integrated towing wire is part of the bib system virtually eliminating bib breakages.
The Oarsome 130mm weights 30grams and comes standard with 3 VMC 9626PS size 1 trebles and 5H stainless steel split rings.
Removing the size 1 trebles and replacing them with 2 VMC 9626PS size 2/0 trebles is an option for those prefering this rigging method.
for Tiger Fish the Oarsome 130mm is rigged with one VMC inline single at the front and one VMC Scorpic treble at the rear, for Black Bass the lure is rigged with the new VMC 6x strong trebles and matching rings.
The buoyancy of the Oarsome 130mm allows this lure to be trolled successfully in the timber and snags of our rivers and impoundments without continually reversing to retrieve fouled lures.
The Oarsome 130mm has been used by winners and top placed teams in the Barra Classic and Barra Nationals held on the Daly River in the Northern Territory as well as fishing competitions in Northern Queensland.
