    I took a pic of our lass holding one of the Giant Rapalas in Bass Pro Shop,i felt a right tit asking the shop assistant if they actually used them for fishing there,to my amazement he said they re rig the hooks for a big predator fish out there,can't remember what it was though

    my favorite and most successful lures have been yo-zuris. the best a hydro popper 25g silver with a black back. somedays you dont have to change lures. its always the first lure i try. ive tried the bigger version and it also fishes well but is a bit bulky. the mag popper also fishes well. im going to experiment a bit more with a few new lures from basspro, the knuckleheads look good but they seem to lack the finish of yo-zuris and ive acquired a couple of rapala x raps the shallow ones just to see what the fuss is about

    The lure i have done really well on and has never been mentioned is a nice shiny lead spinner ,wound quite fast they can be awesome.I must have 30 x-raps a dozen yo-zuri's and another 20 " experimental cheapo's" that don't usually work very well.When the bass are taking a medium depth diver,x-raps take some beating,but when they are nearer the surface,crystal minnows are hard to beat

    Just a word of warning lads on cheap copies and imitations, stay well clear they may look fine and dandy but they are crap and will let you down when you get that good fish :sad:

    Have you tried any of the Ron Thompson splitting jacks for the Billy's Iain?? I have done quite well with them for pike,never tried em in the salty stuff :happy:

    I think I've got one in the box Mart but not used it yet - but I think the Ron Thompson plugs are ok - it's the ones that copy the classic patterns like the Sliver that are useless :surprise:

    Do you mean them cheap lead spinners the
    ones you normally get for £1 each Mart? I have never tried spinners for Bass, i have heard people catching on Toby's like...will have to give them a try... :happy:

    Dexters and tobies the ones to carry , especially in lighter weights , never actually had bass on them but the lighter weights work well in rivers so im guessing over shallow scaurs they would be the ones to go for ......you can get alsorts of colours but try and go for proper abu tobies the ones made out of brass .....

    Thanks Mart, Gonna give them ago, still on the look out for some sandeel type bass fly's, anyone have any idea's????
  16. Dav

    Dav Rockling

    I could be wrong but im sure our mate bucko ties flies gary. ?
    maybe he may be kind enough to design a fly to imitate sandeels..and or sprats......and tie a couple for us to give a bash....as it sounds a good method using a fly instead of a redgill .... :happy: :happy:

    last year at south gare me my dad and my son age 9 were plugging away ..........my dad is quite an expert he has had quite a few decent bass plugging............anyway my son had,as he was basicly learning ,had my old gear a cheap spinning rod an old reel and a cheap plug that i bought from whitby angling,after half an hour my son practising casting left the bail arm on and had a snap off leaving his plug floating about 15 yards away........so me and my dad carried on expertly plugging when all of a sudden whoosh huge splash ,a bass [presumably]took my sons plug which had been just floating in the water ............we carried on plugging expertly for another hour or so and caught nothing.....we were plugging in the same area in which his plug got took,at the same time his plug got took, which was just laid doing nowt .......this season i think i shall adopt the tactic of just letting it float and see what happens :confused:
