Dear members,

So I'm going on my second Lazarus Banks trip which is confirmed for October 2017.

This time around I set about choosing my crew in advance to have a say about fishing time and not wasting by trolling, which me and my dad can do with our own boats in Northern KZN.

Now, I have the opportunity to source some tackle for myself and my crew (3 seasonal anglers and 3 newbies). Kindly let me have some info on the tackle you would want to let go and some prices and pictures thereof for consideration.

You can contact or whatsapp me @ zero73zero6zero39zero2
or e-mail me @

I'm currently situated in Pretoria

Thanks in advance guys

Hi bud the topwater and jigging world is full of BS and the sky's the limit when it comes to gear prices. For a good trip I would say you need the following.

PE 8 popping rig to handle the big buggers
PE 6 stickbait/light popping rod for medium size stuff
PE 3 light tackle setup to mess around with when the things are slow
PE4 jigging setup

Reel wise from best to less best
Stella ---> grr mufasa
Saragosa ---> great for jigging a bit sucky for top water
Twin Power---> 14K is a decent topwater reel
Stradic ---> only go up to 8k size but are proven performers for light applications

Rods (not sure on budget here so I'll go for the cheap reliable options)
Shimano the white one can't remember the name
Shimano - T-Curve
Daiwa - Saltiga
Posideion- can't remember the name but it has blue EVA

Shimano t-Curve
Shimano - Trevalla

I'm sure you have plenty light gear

Halco roosta
Heru Cubera Poppers
Heru Ulua Stick Baits
Shimano Ocea stick baits
large GT Ice creams
Williamson stick baits (bit sucky but they work)

Most of the Williamson range
most of the stuff JM Africa stocks

Terminal tackle
Owner ST 76 trebles for the big gear ST66 for the light
Owner split rings and sold rings
big Swivels NT, Japan or Owner
Varivus Assist cord

Good shops to talk to would be
jigging master Africa and the boys at Freespool Angling.

Hope that helps
