Rhys Creed’s Favourite Mud Guts Spinnerbait
Written by Rhys Creed
Hi all, my names Rhys Creed and I’m the founder of Social Fishing (www.socialfishing.com.au).
I’ve been a long time user of the Mud Guts spinnerbaits range. They are by far my most successful native lure and have accounted for hundred of my natives captures over the past decade.
I grew up using these lures and have never looked back… no point changing something that works, right?
There are so many spinnerbaits on the market these days because they are easy for people to make… but there is a big difference between quality and back yard project. Quality lures will last you a long time, will withstand fish after fish and will produce the results.
Rhys’ Favourite Mud Guts Model
There is an extensive range of Mud Guts to choose from which cover nearly every situation. You’ve got the Big Quaddie and the Big Guts for chasing big cod in lakes and dams. These lure are perfect for tempting large Murray Cod.
As I grew up fishing the Murrumbidgee River my go to and still favouirte of all time is the Standard 5/8oz Mud Guts spinnerbait. This is by far the most popular and most versatile lure in the range.
Its so easy to use and cast all day long and it always gets the results. Even when we try casting hard body lures or soft plastics to try and tempt a fussy fish… I’ll always go back to a Mud Guts Standard and the fish can’t resist them.
The willow bladed configuration in this model is my favourite (Standard Willow 5/8oz), due to the faster flowing waterways that I regularly fish. Willow blades allow your spinnerbait to sink quickly through the fast flowing water.
The Mud Guts range is built with quality components, including extremely tough heads and paint. A great colour range and razor sharp hooks. Even the finer detail like making the length of the arm that holds the blades not to long that it will affect hookup when a large fish inhales the entire lure.
It’s these small things that make all the difference…
