Fisho’s all-round fishing weapon hits the water

FISHING World this week picked up its brand new project boat, a Bar Crusher 535XS.

The centre console plate boat from Bar Crusher offers a truly versatile rig suitable for a range of fishing styles, from fresh to salt. Its convenient size also means it can be towed with an average car and fits in a standard size garage. It’s economical to run and can be managed single handedly.

The 535XS took its maiden voyage this afternoon on Wogonga Inlet in Narooma before a gusty change forced us off the water.

In the short time spent flicking lures around the flats and drop-offs, the 535XS more than met expectations offering a stable platform at rest and a sporty run under way.

Back at the ramp, winds reaching 40 knots made for an interesting retrieve. Thankfully, the Bar Catch launch/retrieve system turned an otherwise dicey situation into a text book boat retrieve.

Stay tuned for further reviews, videos and projects on the Fisho website and print edition over coming months.
