In 1997 Peter Pakula was the first Lure Manufacturer to make lures from super tough, super clear Polyurethane resulting in the first Softease and Diamond Heads. Part of this system was developing a system using single molds to form Trolling Lure Heads. In 2012 we have taken the system further introducing a new form of two part material that is even tougher than than any used previously, plus with new additives in UV code name UV2, Fluorescent and Luminescent (Lumo®). We have put together the Paua Hothead Range which includes Keeled Jet Heads and standard heads all using advanced materials and additives. These modified Pakula Lures would need their own catalog to give you all the information on the great success that their predecessors have achieved. When these lures are run in their specified positions you'll find them very easy to run together, regardless of trolling speed or sea conditions. Even more than position specific, our statistics show that each lure is also best in a limited range of colours in these positions.
The Pakula Sprocket is a legend, having been listed in the Marlin Magazine top 10 Lures of all time both times the survey has been done. This long rigger lure, particularly in the colours Lumo, has accounted for a great many First Marlin captures, Tournament Wins and the largest fish of the season twice in Cairns. If you are only ever going to take one piece of advice from us then let it be "Run the Lumo Sprocket on the long rigger, and leave it there!" Around half of all the successes on Pakula Lures are with this lure in this position. It may not catch fish for a while, but when it starts working nothing else will come close. Its tight swimming action works in all conditions at any trolling speed. It is totally irresistible, especially now that the lure comes with the updated Lumo Skirts. Don't leave home without a Lumo Sprocket! In fact you'll more than likely need spares. Anglers have been known to troll a full spread of Lumo Sprockets!
