Nomad Riptide Lure FAQs
Why choose the Nomad Riptide Lure over other stickbait lures?
The Riptide was born and bred for battling Australia's pelagic bruisers. From its thoughtfully balanced weighting to unrelenting construction, this locally designed stickbait is in a class of its own for taking on our most hard-charging offshore and coastal gamefish species.
What retrieves work best for the Riptide?
A slow "walk the dog" technique allowing the lure to sweep side to side often drives fish wild. You can also impart sharp twitches, pauses, or a fast and erratic cranking technique. Experiment until you unlock the ideal triggering action for the day's conditions!
