hey mate ,

The new c - gar has been doing pretty well on the Shad/Tailor over here as well as the salmon ( not kob ) they can be fished as a top water or a sinking stick bait . There has been mixed results using both techniques , but the slow sinking twitch off the bottom retrieve seems to be the popular at the moment as its getting the most bites - in saying that this lure do's look a lot like the local sand whiting that are in plague proportions and form a very big part of the tailor/shad diet .

I have bought a few colours to try ,but have yet to give them a proper work out ..... they cast ok , but do tend to tumble if u don't time the cast 100 % .

I would say they will do very well in S/Africa as the profile is similar to a decent size mullet and if u let it kiss the sand working it through a nice working gutter a kob will jump all over it .
Shad and leeries will smash it off the surface/sub suface as well , I would say get a few and give it a bash .

have u tried the shiversticks , they are also doing very well on all sorts over here and are racking up the species .

Hi there,

They look very nice! What is the price of the Halco C-gar lures and what do they offer (in terms of action) over and above what the CID Shiverstick gives you?

Well, I got myself two of the Halco C-gar lures this afternoon. They look absolutely awesome! I will post a photo tomorrow. I first want to replace the treble hooks with decoys. Cannot wait to try them out at Cape Vidal next week!::happyd:

I have changed 99% of all my spinning lures to the Decoy hooks.

I am really impressed with this hook.

I absolutely agree - I use the whole range from 2/0 - 5/0. Going to put 4/0 decoys on the c-gar's.

They both go for between R120 - R130 each. And then the two decoy hooks as well. So its a significant investment and a lure one does not want to loose by doing something silly on the rocks! Hahaha!

Roosta popper fitted with 2 x 5/0 Decoy hooks and two of the latest C-gar stickbaits fitted with 2 x 4/0 Decoy hooks. Resident no. 4 hyperwire splitrings attached to the front ends for connection to no 5 power swiwel attached to fluorocarbon leader. Going to try these lures out at Cape Vidal for a morning session this coming Tuesday. Feeling super excited!!

Nice! Yes it was a difficult choice yesterday to select the two I bought! The guys at Basilmanning thinks the Gin clear is going to be a big winner, whilst the pink tiger will be very good in more dirty water near river mouths etc. But they all look good!!

How would one fish the C Gar on top. would you just reel quickly to get a stream of water over it or would you do twitches like a popper or do you walk the dog like bass fishing. I know all these might give results on any given day but what was it designed to do.

Regards
Malboer

My experience with them (yet fishless) so far. On a slow retrieve they swim with a great slow swimming action just below the water surface without surfacing. Some short twitches make them dive a bit deeper which I think is very nice. On a medium retrieve they tend to surface and skid like a plug. On a super quick retrieve with the rod tip down they dig into the water and swim at a very quick speed without surfacing - very nice for fast game fish I would think! Fast retrieved with rod tip not all the way down make them tumble. I feel they dont sink nearly as well as the CID Shiversticks in our conditions with lots of swell and breeze. And they do not have a shivering action when allowed to sink. So I use them more as a surface lure. But proof will ultimately be in the pudding!

The one right at the bottom (Gin Clear)- something tells me it is going to account for many fish in calm clean water conditions! I've got that one and the one just above it.
