2015 Cod opening

With the fast approaching opening of Cod season, it is time to get your gear in order.

This means, time to stock up on lures!

We have some exciting NEW lures to satisfy your BIG fish needs.

Our new Leviathan lures are made extra big and extra tough. They have a very erratic action, due to being a three-section body. We us strong stainless steel eyelets and split rings, as well as super sharp, super tough, Shinto hooks. There is no need to upgrade these hooks or rings. You are ready to fish, straight out of the package!

And we have a NEW lure, that will be released on Saturday, 21 November. These yet to be named wake-baits are double jointed like the Leviathans. They swim just below the surface, and look like a real fish. If you haven’t already, get over to our Facebook page, and enter the competition to name them, for your chance to win one! Comp closes Friday 20 November 2015 @ 19:00 AEST.

They will debut on the shop page Saturday morning.

For a limited time, they are all on sale.
From 5 pm Thursday 7 June, until 11:59pm 8 June, you can grab yourself a bargain. So now is the time to check out the new colours, and fill your tackle boxes.

Sales on site closed until January

Hi everyone,

As you may have noticed, all lures are marked as out of stock on the website at the moment.

This is due to health issues. I will be out of action for the next 3-4 weeks.

Right now, we are just finishing up any orders received, and any tackle store orders. You can still get lures at selected tackle stores.

We won’t waste this time off. When we come back, we will be releasing some new colours and some new designs.

We will leave orders closed until I am back in the workshop and have a bit of stock built back up. So check back soon, to see the new lures.

Sorry if this has caused any inconvenience.

Only 1 month until the Lure Expo in Ipswich

Hey everyone, Well, it is almost that time of year again, the Australian Fly, Lure, and Outdoor Expo in Ipswich Qld.

I know, like many other lure makers, we are flat out here. Trying to finish up any orders we have received, as well as get lures ready for the expo. This means that we have had to stop taking orders on the website. Sorry if this is an inconvenience to any of our customers. But the shop will be open again, as soon as possible.

Well, it is only about 4 weeks to go, and true to form, I get bored with all the repetitiveness. So I start tinkering and playing with new designs! I know you all will be excited to hear that I have not one, but TWO new designs that I am releasing this year at the Expo.

We have  a lot of customers, who have been requesting salt water lures for quite some time. So, we have finally given them what they have been asking for. 🙂 We are releasing a handmade timber lure, designed for those saltwater game fish.

The other new release is a deep bodied diver. I am really excited about this one. I am not going to spoil the surprise, and you will have to wait a few more weeks to see them.

On top of these creations, I have made a collectable lure, in limited numbers. This year, it is the angler fish from our logo, Aloysius the Angler Fish. I had “fun” trying to make the fronds on top of Aloysius’ head. But, the finished product is Awesome!

I am really looking forward to this year’s expo. Fitzy and all the team do such an amazing job organising a great event for all of us Aussie lure lovers!

If you are heading to the expo, come and say hi! We will be doing demonstrations on turning timber lures on the lathe again.

ALSO, don’t forget to go see the guys from Fishing Monthly, and get your subscription. As usual, FMG is doing a special collectors lure for the first 40 people to subscribe, but ONLY AT THE EXPO. And, I might personally know the lure maker that has been asked to make this years very exclusive collectors lure for them! 😉 It will be a special Rattlesnake Walker, in the Fishing Monthly colours. Don’t miss out!

Hope to see you all there!

Business as usual

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know, we have our website back up and running.

So, you are able to place your orders again. Thanks for your patience with us, while we got it sorted out.

If you do place an order, it may take a little while to get out to you. As usual, we are super busy here. Not only are we catching up on orders, and trying to get a few extras made for the upcoming Australian Lure and Fly Expo in Ipswich. But we are also in the process of moving. We have been based in Goulburn NSW since the beginning. But soon, Gobsmacked Lures will be moving to Cowra, in the Central West of NSW. So, just keep this in mind, when placing your order, and don’t leave it til the last minute to get your gear.


As always, we would love to see your catch. Please pop on to our Facebook page, and share your photos. We try to update our home page here on the website, with more recent catches on our lures. So, you never know, you might see a familiar face or two. So don’t forget to share.


Cheers everyone12472315_562583513914127_1685210764781791017_n

The long awaited lure special!

Sorry guys and girls, we have been really busy here at Gobsmacked Lures. But we haven’t forgotten that we promised to run a lure special.

Being summer, that means kids are home from school ‘needing’ to be entertained. We have taken advantage of these holidays, and gotten a few mini family getaways in. But now that school is back, we are back in the swing of things too.

So for the rest of the month of February, we have a special on our surface walkers. That means our Frog Walkers, Leviathans, and Rattlesnake Walkers are on special.

Crank’n’Stein is here!

Well, cod season is well under way. And we here at Gobsmacked Lures are enjoying seeing all the photos of fish caught on our lures.

I was lucky enough to get out for a fish last weekend.

Not only did I get to really see my two new designs in action, but was able to land a nice little cod as well. I am in the process of editing the video of my little trip down to Yass. As soon as i am done, I’ll be sure to post it here, so all of you can see both the Leviathan and the Crank-n-Stein in action. If you haven’t gotten yourself one yet, be sure to! The action is awesome, if I do say so myself!

I am going to be running a special soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
