The AquaWave Mushi is not new to this website. It’s one of my favourite lures for lots of species when the conditions allow me to throw tiny lures and jig-heads. I got that chance again recently and set about seeing what species I could catch.
The Mushi is a great rock-pooling lure. Fished on a half gram jighead you can flick it into gaps under rocks and see who is at home. The best adversary here is the Giant Goby. A true predator and the toughest critter you’re likely to come up against in this environment. Double-hard, if you can stay unnoticed the Giant Goby will hit the lure with insane ferocity. I found one that measured 21cm! That’s a serious goby.
In addition, I found wrasse, pollack and even managed to trick a Common Blenny into eating the unflavoured Mushi. Really great fun.
