Sebile Koolie question.

Postby yak69 » Thu Aug 09, 2012 9:48 pm

After much reading in the forum it would seem the koolie is a highly regarded lure for flatties and snapper.
Dropped into the local to pick one up, and they look the part for sure.
My question is, with a lure that can dive to 50ft(15m) how do you control the depth, esp when i read forums stating they are using a koolie in less than 5-7 m of water. :?:

Can't wait to blood the new yak as soon as time allows, and hoping to catch a report worthy specimen.
Cheers

depth is controlled by how much line you have out. The More line the depper it gose.

thanks.
I assumed it would be something simple,
but is not a cheap lure to lose to the reef or weed!

to a point
after that line drag means more line equals less depth

Dave... you've bought the wrong one... look for this one... Koolie Minnow LL 76 mm Floating 6-12 Ft... This is the one that does all the damage... trust me.

I doesn't dive to 50ft or 15metres.

Lots of luck... Jimbo

Aw crap,
And I thought yak fishing was going to be easy. ;-)
My tackle shop is gunna love me.
Anyway it was a pretty lure and I'm sure it'll get use.
I think this one falls into the category of "oooh shiny, i must have one"

Dave, chuck it out with only 5m or 10m of line and it will work fine.

The LL 90 mm also works well, and does reduce your bite-off risk from tailor/mackeral. It is a Koolie Minnow, available in different sizes and depths. just ask for 'the Beekeeper Special'. :D

The sizes are: 76; 90; 102; 118?; 136; + + up to 190, which dives to 82 ft.

What makes the lure so special other than it catches fish :? as plenty of other lures catch fish. Is there anything about the lure that other lures don't mimic that could give it this dedicated following ? I have never seen one other than the pic above and it just looks like a deep diving minnow. Please enlighten me. Cheers Pat.
mesmerised by the hopelessness of logic.....then run down by the taxi cabs of absolute reality.

Yes dependent on the depth of water in which you are fishing but how do you measure how much line you let out when trolling?

Pat... I originally bought the lure out of curiosity... kept seeing the Sebile range, thinking that they were pretty dear... a thought kept nagging at me... they might be bloody good lures, hence the price hike... I'll have to try one... this went on for months.

I finally bit the bullet and bought one, selected the one I thought was the right depth for my needs, the colour came from another rainbow trout coloured lure that had caught lots of fish for me in the past.

From the time it hit the water, it began catching fish for me... the tally of species caught by me on this lure is fifteen... another AKFF'er added another species as well... sixteen species from one lure!!

Why it catches fish ranging from jew to whiting is beyond me... but I'll keep using koolies while they're still available.

If I hadn't expressed my amazement at the range of fish it attracted, the notoriety would possibly never have existed... but I did, and it's there... and now they're pretty hard to get, bugger it!

Most everybody who has used them seems to catch fish with them.

But... I'm with you... they just look like any other deep diving lure to me, too.

Sorry I couldn't be of more use to you, Pat...

Cheers, Jimbo

Jimbo.
Did you find success trolling, or with cast and retrieve? I'm assuming at those sort of depths, it's more suited to having it trolling out the back...

Pretty easy, with the cost of a Coolie, it never leaves the safe in the lounge room.........

The one thing I noticed when I first cast out this lure was the tight action. I compare it to an oversized bream lure. So combine this with its ultra deep diving and the thin profile and you have a potent combination! Most of my other really deep diving lures have a very wide wobble and have quite large profiles and although they are probably suitable for flatties and jew I get the feeling the wide action might scare off as many fish as they attract.

My 2 cents!
