One of the hottest new lures on the market is the Shimano Waxwing.  This unique lure consists of  a jigging body with an upper wing which gives it a zigzag motion while the lower wing acts like a rudder to prevent rolling.  Simply point your rod at the Waxwing and reel as fast as possible to put out a tremendous amount of action which fish cannot resist.  The Waxwing has a double tinned Owner hook as compared to a treble to prevent snags.  The Waxwing comes in sizes from 0.5oz to 4.4oz so should catch everything from largemouth bass to giant saltwater species.  I will see shortly if I can tempt a few montster Papua New Guinea bass into stricking the Waxwing.  Check them out at the Shimano website or go to youtube for lots of videos on this new exciting lure.

Recently got some great looking poppers and Daly divers from Kermett Adams of to try and land a few monster Papua New Guinea bass.  Kermett is experimenting with adding a swivel to the rear hook which is normally very suspectable to breakoffs with tough fishing fish such as golden dorado or PNG bass.  This option will allow the hook to rotate thus preventing the back of the lure from breaking.  Also Kermett has made some great poppers to fool the PNG bass on the topwater.  These along with a large variety of peacock bass, largemouth bass, golden dorado, etc.. are available from Kermett.
Contact Kermett at for more information on his lures.

Theerasart Lake in Thailand recently opened in June 2012.  This lake is located next to the fabulous Ratchaburi Predators Lake where you can catch monster red tail catfish till your arms fall off.   Theerasart Lake holds mostly carp and barb species.  It currently holds Mekong Catfish up to 180kg, Giant Siamese Carp to 60kg, monter Jullien Prized Golden Carp, and numerous others.  On the next trip to Thailand I am planning on splitting a half day fishing Ratchaburi and Theerasart and am sure monsters will be landed!  For more information on these lakes and other great fishing opportunities, contact Capt. Francois Helias at plus check out his site at
