Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard Lure
What will eat a lizard? Several Australian fish come to mind straight away, with barramundi and murray cod at the top of the list. The Lunkerhunt lure company is renowned for developing some weird and brilliant lures, from the phantom spider to the prop frog. This time they've turned their attention to lizards, and the results are impressive.
The Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard is a topwater lure that no barra and murray cod angler should be without in their box. The Skitter Lizard realistically mimics the action of a lizard swimming across the surface of the water. When retrieved, the Skitter's tail and legs kick right away, creating an irresistible action that will result in some seriously big hits.
Fully rigged with a weedless 4/0 double hook and 5/0 stinger hook system, the Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard is ready to tackle fish in many types of situations. If you're targeting big barramundi in the Top End from a heavily lilied dam or looking to catch a Murray cod in a weedy water channel, you'll want to try a Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard Lure. Even the most sceptical fish will become inquisitive when action and presentation are matched with ingenuity.

Is the Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard Lure a saltwater or freshwater lure?
The Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard is a freshwater lure. However, there may be certain fish in saltwater that will also be attracted to the action of the Skitter Lizard.
What fish will eat the Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard?
Anglers have successfully targeted barramundi, murray cod and other large freshwater fish with the Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard. However, at 5.25 inches, we wouldn't be surprised if a greedy Australian bass would also take a liking to this lure. If you are chasing bass above 40cm, then the Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard is unquestionably worth a try.
How do you fish the Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard?
The Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard is best fished using a steady retrieve. However, sometimes giving the Skitter an occasional pause or twitch will result in an even bigger hit. Experiment with different retrieves until you find what works best on the day.
Will the Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard Lure snag easily?
No. The Lunkerhunt Skitter Lizard is rigged with a weedless 4/0 double hook system and 5/0 stinger hook system, which will help prevent snagging in most situations. However, as it is with all lures, there is a chance you may get snagged if you fish in heavy cover or where there is a lot of structure. The Skitter is perfect for fishing where there are a lot of weeds and where the surface of the water has lily pads on it.
