Mcarthy Shad

Mcarthy Shad

The Mcarthy 5in Jerk Shads also proved deadly on the South African tailor due to the great action and the orca colour which was a perfect match for the baitfish they were feeding on. Also used these alot over my time there, only downside was they didnt last as long as your snapbacks.

Most of the fish ranged from 35-45cm with a few creeping up. All taken at Beacon island rocks.

Colin, no big boys but some that were pushing on 50cm. The size of fish was pretty consistent in the school.
