It’s a bird, it’s a bat, well no not really, but it is one of the best Australian bass surface lures on the market designed to mimic both sound and motions of a fallen insect or cicada upon the waters surface. We all know what a bass will do if an insect happens to fall in or near its snag? BOOOF! That’s precisely what the Profishent Humbug lure is designed to do. It’s a surface walker style lure to be cast around snags and habitat where a bass sits in wait, to be fished slow and to deliver explosive surface strikes that translate into hook-ups.
There’s a bunch of fish that release a collective cheer of anticipation as the first signs of summer breach the promise of spring. These fish know that very soon the cicadas, and a host of similar type bugs, will crawl from the ground and become increasingly active as they search for mates. Many a cicada will seek love by the rivers, hell bent on a quick romance to ensure propagation of the next generation. The Hapless Cicada however, delirious in lust, is prone to falling in the water, flapping about like a damsel in distress and inadvertently becoming a living smorgasbord with an inbuilt dinner bell, screaming to all the predatory fish in the general vicinity.
Austalian Bass, Yellow Belly, Redfin, Perch, Saratoga, and even the likes of Mangrove Jack and black bream all come to the table with a firm knowledge that herein lies an answer to their insatiable hunger. This is such good news for the angler because Profishent Takckle has the Humbug Lure that looks exactly like a cicada floundering in the water. The shape and colours are perfect but it’s those vinyl wings and internal ball bearings that create a phenomenal commotion on the top water that translates simply to, “eat me.” For most anglers, there is nothing quite like the thrill of seeing your lure snatched from the surface by a monster predator.
The Profishent Humbug Cicada Lure is a must for your summer lure kits when you’re heading out to hunt the rivers. Listen for the sounds, if the cicadas are singing, it’s time to rig up your Humbug bass surface lure.

The Humbug Difference
In the past we stocked similar style lures to the humbug that were near identical such as the bat lure, the black bat and rileys winged cicada lures. So, what makes the Humbug lure different? Fish See UV and in our range for sale if you choose to purchase colour YF or OF you get the added benefit of extreme UV coating. Just shine a black light UV torch on either of these 2 colours and you will see what we mean. The Humbug has a unique rattle system to imitate the chatter of an insect and finished off with quality BKK treble hooks makes the Humbug the best bat/cicada surface crawler lure we have sold to date.
The shape, wings and internal rattles create an incredible ruckus on the top water drawing fish, already attuned and waiting, to the commotion.
With the wings out the silhouette from of the Profishent Humbug Fishing Lure is more or less identical to a cicada from the perspective of a predator approaching from beneath it.
The Profishent Humbug Lure is incredibly robust and durable. The BKK hooks and rings are of excellent quality and ready to take significant punishment.
Few fishing lures can match the thrill of using the Humbug. It’s a summer time guarantee.
Make sure you have a least 1 Profishent Humbug Lure in your fishing lure kit for your summer time river fishing. This way when the bugs hit the air you will be fishing with the flavour of the season and all of your predatory targets will have an eye out for the hapless cicada. They’re for sale now and a must have.
