he Laser Pro 160 by Halco Tackle boasts the latest in lure technology, incorporating strength, durability and fish-catching ability. The outer body has extra-secure hook anchoring, and towing points that are built-in as an integral part of the lure body. Halco’s bulletproof bib securing system provides added strength, and ensures the Laser Pro 160 has faultless swimming performance at high and low speeds.
A great bluewater trolling lure, the Laser Pro 160 can be trolled over a wide speed band, however its optimum speed for trolling for pelagics is around 6.5 knots. Troll lures at distances ranging from 10-50 metres from the boat. About 25 metres is normal. Troll more than one lure at once to increase your chances, and emulate a school of fish. When trolling for toothy pelagics, such as mackerel, remember to use a Halco Snap or Supa Snap Trace.
Always troll your lures at different distances from the boat. Not only does this cover more area, it also avoids tangles when turning the boat, as the closer lure will pass under the further lure during the turn. The Laser Pro 160 is the most popular lure of the classic Laser Pro range, and comes in either standard (1m), deep diver (2m+), or extra deep diver (6.1m) versions.
