Had a couple of hours in the yak, trying out some new SP's for the wrasse.

Lost one clonker, but got this one as a consolation prize.

Lovely Pig !

A few of us tried today but alas, no joy. A few half chances maybe but it looked perfect in a few holes.

Again, lovely fish, I'm envious.

You'll get into some great fish if you continue to fish those craw style baits.

I have the storm ones too but the inside of them is very hollow.
Easy to hide a big jig inside but hard to hold a smaller one in place don't you think ?

Very salty though.

Yeah they are very soft and hollow.

Repaired a couple with superglue last night as they were torn to bits, I expected the claws to be bitten off first TBH.

I just mounted mine on a 14g 4/0 dart jighead.

Interesting that you mention putting a jig inside one, could be the way to go.

Might make them sink on a more even plane rather than tail first, good or bad?

You have that problem too eh. LOL. I've had some incredible takes/hits on my gene larew craws and they come back chomped off at the claws. I fish mine stand up in the defensive posture so I guess it's the first available target.

Yes m8, just like a tube bait, some craws and other creature baits have hollow bodies. I like to hide a 10g ball jig inside the storm as it holds inside just nicely. On tubes I use a 'tube skirt jig' more recently known by their 'Decoy' name 'Bachi'.

Just push the whole jig inside, poke the eye out through the plastic and the hook needs pushing though also on the storm.
On some creature baits, I use a free leg and rig the hook point texan to make it a little more weedless.

The future is bright, the future is orange. Could have been a wrasse advert.

During this winter some belters have been landed. I've been lucky enough to catch my fair share but nothing BIG yet.
There is still time if I don't run out of jig heads first.
