    I know there has been a lot of discussion on the forum of this plug is a banker and then the next vogue plug comes along......there hasn t been too much about about succesful soft plastics.

    I had a bit of a dabble with some last year with no success and to be honest ended up losing confidence in using them.

    What plastics have you found successful and how have they fished at their best?

    My wife has a soft plastic thing which she calls a rabbit.


    She says she has had a lot of success with it.


    Apparently the best conditions are in the bedroom when I'm at work.


    It also comes in a variety of colours and I believe her that it works well because it stinks of fish.

    I've had bass on megabass x layers, hogy sandeels, slug gos and fladen krille soft plastics. All rigged on weedless hooks and fished behind a controller float with about 5ft leader.

    this one is called a bass bandit, but its just a jellyworm on a leadhead, also I found jellys just as effective as plugs for Pollock and you dont have all those nasty trebles to worry about.

    for bass i use fiish minnows ,savage sandeels .fisharrow shads
    wrasse i use small fiish minnows ,megabass spindle worms
    and pollack will take all the above .
    most are fished on jigheads or weedless or texas rigged
    it depends on were you are fishing realy dave
    to what i would use

    I ll be giving the plastics a real go from the kayak for bass this year Andy ( if I get the time when the conditions suit)

    I m reasonably happy with my approach for the pollock I jyst need to suss out the methods for the bass with plastics, I m not a lover of trolling as paddling around bores me, I d rather be casting for them, I guess like anything location and confidence in my approach will have to be improved as well!

    if your casting and retreiving dave, fiish minnows work very well with the paddle tail .and the fisharrows flash jshadsyou can rig weedless
    so if you do want to work very close to the weed or bottom
    they will not hook up on the weed .
    or use the savage sandeel slugs weedless and let them drift in the tide
    same again you can rig weedless
    if theres loose weed floating about then the hooks are inside the slug so it wont catch the weed and spoil the action .

    Very good for bass,pollack and wrasse .

    Even better when you get them in custom made colours ;) ;)

    Not the cheapest of lure but how much does the average Winter cod bait cost ? ? ?



    For some reason a few of the youtube links wouldn't work ,eventually found one that did 8)

    Cheers Andy, weve made a mould for Savage Gear but I think we got the mix wrong for the first ones as they dont seem to swim too well.
