Halco Sorcerer 68 STD Jelly Prawn
Halco Sorcerer 68 STD Jelly Prawn has become an estuary favourite here at Fishing Pro Shop in Pretoria! We have caught all sorts on it. From a variety of Kingfish species, Rock Salmon, Perch, and even Grunter.
Check the Fishing Pro Shop YouTube Channel for Estuary Fishing our right here…the Halco Sorcerer 68 STD Jelly Prawn features in many of the titles! The channel is updated all the time and is a great way to see what is catching what in the estuary sport fishing scene. The latest video is of young Evan Phillips bagging his baby GT on this exact lure, just this weekend. Down on the KZN South Coast. Where there are plenty of estuaries waiting for you to hunt gamefish in.
Fishing the Sorceror
This lure is easy to fish!
Cast it or troll behind a boat, you simply can not go wrong!
The buoyant nature of the lure means it can easily be “backed off ” snags most of the time. We have learned that this is not a high-speed lure with best results when fished at a speed between 0.5 – 4 knots. The further back this guy is set, the shallower he swims which really is a cool variable to have covered so easily.
I have found that fishing ultra-light here works best and would suggest braid no heavier than 15lb with a fluorocarbon leader of 12 to 15lb.
These lures come out with a very light set of trebles and if the plan is to drag fish out of structure then a change of hooks will be a great idea! Although this can affect the super-cool swimming action so its a Catch 22 all over again. But luckily in most estuaries light tackle does suffice. As I said before – I use a 10lb outfit with a very light fluorocarbon leader for increased strikes. But once again, watch out for that Catch 22 situation when a big toothy rock salmon comes along!
