REVIEW: Lively Lures Mohawk
THE Mohawk is the latest edition to the already extensive Australian made Lively Lures range. I've been using the Mohawk for a few months now, mostly for wild river and impoundment bass in NSW.
For a lure that’s only 60mm long, the Mohawk is quite chunky and has a fairly big profile when swimming. The deep diving bib and tough construction of the Mohawk has proved to be very effective on my trips upstream fishing deep, river stone and boulder lined North Coast pools.
With a quick few winds it will be well under a metre of water, diving quite rapidly with a tight action and levelling out at about 2.5m. The Mohawk is a floating hardbody which helps working it over boulders and also de-snagging when occasionally pinning some timber.
I've also found it to be particularly effective along the deep windblown edges of impoundments where it will swim down the edge of a steep bank quite nicely. Further North, the Mohawk is already proving popular for sooty grunter, barra and mangrove jacks.
The Mohawk comes fitted with hard wearing #4 VMC trebles and is about 10g – which means it's easy to cast on a light baitcast outfit. The Mohawk is no doubt a tough and versatile addition to the Lively Lures range for both the fresh and salt.
