First off I must admit, I have never caught a fish using any of these …. yet!
However, I am beginning to gain a better understanding of what style of lures to use in certain conditions. This is obviously through my very limited experience / knowledge but everyone has to start somewhere.
I have been out on some marks when the current is strong and a large rolling swell has made it difficult to get your standard ‘plug’ or ‘minnow’ lures to dig in – are these the solution?
Then I thought to myself, maybe not over incredibly rough or snaggy ground due to the fact these lures sink – although less hooks would mean less catching in weed or rocks? I am not sure but I feel this style of lure has its own unique advantage in certain situations which others lures can not provide.
I have a few marks in my head where these will make an appearance at the end of October when I head back down to the Copper Coast.
I also think these could be killers for Pollack – again in the correct circumstances.
Only time will tell I guess.
I would love to hear your thoughts or comments on these, I know a few, but very small amount of anglers who carry around at least on in their box for the ‘right’ moment.
