    They cast miles, swim just under the surface, but sink like a brick!

    Cast out, bail arm back over and start reeling straight away. Slow steady retrieve with the odd twich is how I use them. There are a few lads on here who do well on them.

    Change the hooks though!

    Feather the line down after casting so your straight in touch, and you can fish them almost anywhere. They Swim with there nose right in the surface film. you can walk 'em as well as wake ' em. Cheers

    I use a fast retrieve with them up leaving a wake in the surface film for Sea Trout and a slower WTD for Bass. Great lures.

    they are absolutely useless...save yourselves wasting time with them . As a charitable act i will take them off your hands and dispose of them .

    Anyone tried the bay ruf manic FISH?
    88mm and 11g. Looks a smaller wider version maybe?

    Slightly fatter , bit too small for bass . The smallest I fish is normally a 115 but use 95 for Pollock and mackerel

    Cheers for sharing, for my untrained eye the manic action means doing nothing?

    Pretty much , I mix it up . Sometimes a brief hesitation will let it sink a few inches before rising back to the surface . A quick twitch of the rod top will get it to wtd , I catch with all retrieves even gt .

    Brian,

    It wiggles when reeled in. Very subtle but there is lots of vibration in them.

    I haven't got one in my box and cant find one ! Guess I will have to clean up one I have and turn it into a transparent one ..
