Brilliant Blades



Blades would have to be one of my favourite lure presentations. This is one extremely versatile piece of fishing weaponry that is guaranteed to catch fish all year round. With 3 different tow points, the Atomic Hardz Metalz and Megabass Blading x range are ideal for all fishing styles. I typically keep it simple and […]

Atomic Hardz Vib. A detailed breakdown.



  In today’s lure market, it is hard to come by something that really gets me excited. However, the new Atomic Hardz Vib is an exception- this lipless crank has been designed and refined from the bottom up to ensure that it will be a standout product. It has already proven itself on a host […]

Red Delights



The humble Redfin perch, a species that often gets avoided by skillful lure fisherman due to their easy catch-ability. There isn’t a lot of skill involved in catching the ‘usual’ small sized Redfin but to consistently catch those big, solid Redfin requires some skill. Redfin are well known for their fighting abilities, although they aren’t […]

Targeting Luderick on Lures



Luderick fishing has long been a very “traditional” affair with the old timers keenly keeping their secret rigs,baits,tips and spots very much to themselves, sharing these intricacies only with a lucky few. It is for this reason I will be surprised if my suggestion that we can actually target this elusive table fish on lures, isn’t […]

by Tom Deer The Atomic 38 crank in GGS colour is my go to lure when chasing black bream although I do make a slight modification. In order to gain distance to the cast and to get the lure to suspend I often glue 1/2 a small split shot to the underside of the lure. […]

Atomic Prong wins First Comp for Connor Duffy



“It was no ABT but hey, we all started somewhere” You could say the release of my “Sight Casting Big Bream on Atomic Hardz Bream Shads” video has sparked my addiction to competition style fishing. After receiving praise from anglers and a local Sport Fishing Club (the hosts of the Corio Bay Classic), I was […]

Atomic Shad 40 Micks Madness



by Tom Deer Had a great little session recently at Wonboyn Lake NSW. I was there to get myself in the groove for the ABT Bream Mallacoota round and to test the effectiveness of a few retrieves and lures. The water was very clear and rather than go for a neutral or transparent colour I […]

Pre Fish: Normally when I fish this area the water is a good deal warmer and fish can be spread out throughout the whole Gippsland Lakes system, but with the onset […]

Walking the Walk



by Luke Galea “Walking the walk” – In other words setting foot in a meandering freshwater river bed and trekkin it. It would have to be my favourite type of fishing. The fish are never of a size or quantity off the Richter Scale, its physically demanding – but at the end of the day, […]

JP and Sooty fishing with Atomic Plazos



by Mat Cameron In the crystal-clear waters of North Queensland’s inland rivers the scenery is beautiful, the fish are plentiful and the fishing can be sensational! However with the incredibly clear water and intelligent fish, it can also be a tough task to tempt them to bite. On a recent trip north I was lucky […]
