“When I'm chasing blue marlin off the West Coast of Australia there are no other lures in the spread, only JB Lures, Dingoes, Choppers and Rippers!”

“After purchasing a spread of JB Lures in July 2010, I'm converted, they're great lures, I love them but more importantly the fish love them, especially the Dingoes and Rippers!”

A Marlin Ate My Dingo!
You Thought Jack Was Deadly!
It looks like a monster, but Dave Venn’s ‘Mega Chopper’ may be just what you need when a bit of surface commotion is required to tempt a mother up from the depths. This beauty is the size of a small tuna and has the action to demand attention – but, as Matt Gross cautions, you’ll need heavy tackle or a teaser rope to tow it.
With Dave Venn’s personal attention to a hand-made quality product, the JB Lures’ ‘Chook’ is a serious bit of kit for those hoping to tempt sizeable billfish with a taste for surface commotion.
When Dave Venn of JB Lures created the Dingo range in 2004, even he was startled by its immediate successes. The serie has gone on to win a substantial number of tournaments and record fish and, as Matt Gross discovered, with good reason – they work!
Home of the Professional JB Lures Australia and The Marlin's Choice since 1993. JB Lures are designed to catch Marlin, but also very effective on most Bluewater Game Fish, JB Lures are hard resin headed trolling lures. All shapes are original designs from Dave Harrison and Dave Venn.
Each lure is individually weighted, poured, lathe spun, balanced, polished and skirted by hand. Only the finest skirts are used, Yamashita, Yozuri and Ocean Lure concepts.
Ranging in size from 8 inches (approx. 20 centimeters) to 22 inches (approx. 56 centimeters) and designed to handle the rough and sometimes wild conditions off the NSW South Coast. These lures are designed to catch Marlin, not Fishermen, in any ocean they swim.
