What fish species should I target with swimbaits?

Swimbaits are ideal whenever you're targeting large predatory fish. Species like barramundi, Murray cod, mulloway and snapper find it hard to go past a well-presented swimbait. What's more, smaller predators like trout, bass, bream and flathead are also great to target with a swimbait lure.

How should I fish with swimbaits?

While most lures are designed to imitate the fish's prey, few go as far as the swimbait to produce a life-like action. Swimbaits are made from several interconnected segments that move back and forth in unison as the lure moves through the water, producing an extremely convincing swimming motion.

Swimbaits come in a range of sizes and can be fished anywhere in the water column, depending on where your target species are holding. They're an incredibly versatile lure and are effective in an array of situations. For best results, think about the natural prey your target species is feeding on and choose a swimbait that matches that presentation. For example, if there are large numbers of a specific baitfish in the area, try to match your lure to that species.

What other fishing lures are available?

At Anaconda, we stock a huge range of fishing lures from top brands like Berkley, Zman, Daiwa, Shimano, Rapala, Shad, Gulp, Black Magic, and many more - so you'll be ready for just about any fishing scenario.
Our range includes a wide variety of lures for everything from land-based fishing to trolling and big game. Here are just a few examples of the fishing lures available at Anaconda.


A spinnerbait, also called an inline spinner, is a great lure for beginners and experienced anglers alike. As the name suggests, a spinnerbait lure creates a spinning motion as it moves through the water and is ideal for attracting a wide range of fish.

Blades and vibes

Fishing with blades and vibes fishing lures are perfect for targeting many common species including bream and flathead. Both blades and vibes are simple to use and highly effective.

Soft plastics

Soft plastics come in a wide array of shapes and sizes and can be used to target many fish species in just about any environment. Because of their soft bodies, when they're drawn through the water they can be made to 'swim' much like the fish's prey.

Hard body lures

The type of action created by hard body lures is significantly different to many soft plastic lures and jigs and can present like a baitfish in distress. Find the right hard body lure from our range to mimic the size, profile and colour of your quarry's natural prey.
