GFAA Great to have Pakula Lures and Tackle supporting the Junior Tournament auction with a range of inovative game fishing lures, the “go to” skirted lure for Gamefishes. Bidding on 13 lots of Pakula Lures can be found at the below link. Good Luck!
Peter Pakula Evil Angel and Lumo UVAten's are back in stock. These are on their way to Mario's Fresh Bait and Tackle, Geelong
Wildblue Portland Tuna Report; today.This 97.2 kg. "Guted" tuna weighed for Noah and his dad Randol Tucker caught in 65 metre water South and on another "Famious Pakula Lure".There is other Tuna caught on the water,One in the boat and two released.
Peter What an incredible run of big Southern Bluefin Tuna on the Southern Coast of Australia. It was only a short time ago Luke Meli caught the biggest ever in Victoria and within a couple of weeks the record for the biggest ever in Australia is caught by Shannon Xuereb and their respective teams. It is also incredible that with the massive number of lure brands being used that both these fish were caught on Pakula Lures. Jo, Len and I are very proud, not only that the fish were caught on Pakula Lures but also that the teams capable and able to break these records choose Pakula Lures to do it with. Thank you all very much indeed from the production team at Pakula Tackle Australia!!
Shannon Well after the two hard years finishing the boat we finally took her out after the 3rd time with no fish keith xuered skipper angler Shannon Xuereb angler Philip Abela and Daniel ortisi blessed it with a 178kg southern blue fine tuna can't thank Peter Pakula for producing the Pakula medium sprocket evil
Mario's Fresh Bait Pakula skirted lures all topped up......we have all the favourites and a lot more!
Peter Just for you!! New Colours for Micro Uzi, Uzi and Fluzi
Peter Palau Project lures. These are lures chosen for the local commercial fishermen in Palau. Chosen for their low price, effectiveness, rugged longevity and no-nonsense ease of use. These are for targetting pelagics so the reefs have less fishing pressure.
Compleat Angler Geelong Plenty of reports flooding in the store today, all with one thing in common; Tuna!! The bite has continued over the weekend with heaps of fish over 100kgs falling victim to Pakula skirted lures. Apollo Bay been most productive, however with the amount of action Portland and Port MacDonald all producing. The lure cabinet has been getting a workout over the last few days, however still plenty left in all the popular head and skirt combinations. Whether it's your first time or fiftieth, call in or call up and we'll do our best to get you into the fish, from latest reports to rigging your new lures. Tight lines!! 🐟🎣
Peter We are fully loaded with stock of everything again!! Here fishy fishy :)
Kosta Thanks again for all the advice on what lures would suit the boat and gear best. As you've always said and written its about the boat, engines and gear and not what specific lure is considered "hot". The boys said the lures all swam beautifully and the results speak for themselves. Two barrels out of Apollo Bay, one at 128kg and one at 95kg. Both on the Grasshopper Medium Sprocket Jet on the long rigger! It's a shame I couldn't go!!l Better pics to come in mag etc..these are just the phone shots. Angler: Dean Linardos Vessel: Villain
Peter From Andrew Westlake mon 14th Sept 2015 A new highlight in my fishing life. After 7.5 hrs we landed this tuna off Port Fairy yesterday. Using a Pakula Guru Jet in the Blue Angel color, rigged by Peter Pakula himself. He told me what to run and where, and his lure worked a treat. A massive thanks to the crew: Roy driving the boat, Paul and Janaka on gaffs and ropes, for keeping me fed and for giving me a drink. Thanks to Mick Rantall for spooling the reel and tying the double that didn't fail and for staying nearby in his boat and traveling home with us after dark. Lots of people contributed to this and I just could not have done it without them. A special thanks to my fantastic wife Belinda Westlake for understanding me enough to go out to dinner and let me catch up later "because I was on a good fish" Thanks again Kindest regards Andrew Westlake
Richardson Marine A good day on the water at Apollo Bay with Noel Galea and his Brother Luke landing this 123kg SBT In 1 hour and 15 mins on a Pakula Lumo skirt. A few stories coming out of there of what could’ve been as well today, with some big fish winning their freedom. Also a few caught at Portland. More reports at
Peter Looks lit's not only Tuna in Portland from Eduardo Castro - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil In the last 5 or 6 years we have been fishing with your lures. But in the last 2 years only with yours. We use 7 lines in the water in a 51 footer boat for trolling with lures. Lines are between 50lbs to 80lbs mostly of the time, all of them in a DUEL Reels with Biscayne Rods. In the last 10 years we had the invitation to the Offshore World Championship (used to be at Hawaii, than Mexico and now at Costa Rica), in the last 8 years. Specially in the 2014 and 2015, we were second place in both tournaments, and this year losing after 67 sailfishes released and tied with the winner but for only 3 minutes later as you can see in this video: (check the last minutes) 2016 we are already invited! The curious thing is that in this tournament we use Pakula’s lures for all of our teasers. Here in Brazil, our famous Marlin Tournament is the Rio de Janeiro Marlin Tournament. We won 2012 an 2014, and 2nd place in 2009 and 2013. (Almost 40 boats all years) As I told you, 2013 and 2014 we were 100% Pakula lures. We have just uploaded this video on the YouTube: If you want, I can picture the best lures that we use here. Needing any info from us an our fishing, just let me know. I’ve attached a picture from the podium at OWC 2015 @ Costa Rica. My best and tight lines! Eduardo

Peter The return of the Pakula Rat Pack! As we have taken on another member to our production team we are once again able to offer the Rat Pack. These are different (of course) to the ones we did back in the early 1990's as they are specifically made for guys just starting out and will be very easy for those just getting into trolling skirted lures. As with the original rat packs these will come with simple specific instructions. They will also have options for how they are rigged. Pre-orders are being taken now.
