    Hi all. I hope to fish marine drive in December if sea to flat for other marks. I fished there in September and did ok but lost a lot of gear and a few fish to snags. I took the advice on not using pulley rigs and I also use rotten bottoms but was at times rig a chuck. I also noticed that I would get a great bite and the whole lot was snagged. Now I am not stupid and understand this is part of rough ground fishing but does anyone have any tips that have worked for them in the past or present. Thank you for reading

    all rough ground round here, lot of my mates use pulley rigs simon, but for the last 2 or 3 years i have drifted on to a simple single flapper rig, my main line is 60lb braid, rig body is 50lb mono and 40lb snood. i do use a rotter on the bottom of the rig, sometimes a canny clip if the bait is a bit on the larger side so i can clip lead onto the hook.
    I know some lads rave about pulley rigs, but i lost so much gear (and fish) using pulleys.
    For the last 6 months i have also been experimemnting with my own designed rig and the results have been ok, will show you it in dec.

    if i do get snagged up, i wrap braid round butt of rod and walk back, theoretically and hopefully rotter will go first, then snood being the next weakest, then finally rig body. i know we cannot trust that thats the order of the snag but i had more success with this method and would say my losses are down at least 60%.
    Another point is for years i used sensor 25 and lost so much main line, it was beyond a joke, had braid on for nearly 2 years now i think and not lost an inch !

    i fished brigg last week, no big result, however i lost only 2 snoods and hooks. no lead or main rig losses. I remember i would lose at least 10 whole pulley rigs, leads etc a few years ago.
    All depends on type of ground as we know.

    interesting to hear other lads opinions......

    I won't use anything but a pulley rig Simon and normally when you are jammed up hard it's because either a crab or a lobster has walked your trace into its home under a big rock. Depending on where you are fishing if you are using braid you can actually fish without a rotten bottom and get your gear back with sinker every chuck.

    Simon fished there for 5 hours last week on rock fall And must have had 20 Casts and I lost 1 rig all day but I must say the lad fishing just along from me was using a multiplier and mono & either lost the rig or the lead and he did have a few fish one which he lost at the leader knot. What rod are you using Simon because I have found when im using the T1000 or T900 because the rods have plenty of backbone combined with the braid having no stretch normally when you strike it's up off the bottom And away from the rocks a anyway but if the food was too soft you wouldn't get the same effect and you would lose plenty of gear
