    Hi all, so I'm limiting my HPs to just a few now. One of these "lucky" few is the Daiwa Shore Line Shiner R50+SSR. This is my armoury. Any suggestions as to the correct technique? I've caught on the 2nd one up but a while ago. (The top 4 are new this week and awaiting hook mods.)

    I know there is one proper R50+SSR expert on here, but I can't remember who it is!

    Real anglers answers only please!

    Thanks

    Mike

    Steady slow straight retrieve, thats all you need. At night rod tip at 45 degrees ;)

    Nice collection. Like Daniel says, slow retrieve will do the job. But you can put in a lot of twitches imitating a frightened wounded baitfish. Outstanding lure.

    And out of all of the above, one similar to the bottom one has done best for me, followed by the anchovy which is the one you caught on

    Real answer? You're hoping!
    Questions....wouldnt you pick up less weed if you put the tail single on the second one up on so it faces up, and
    .... with the odd alignment of the middle hanger, does that mean the single hangs with the point out to the side? Does the plug still run true?

    The alignment seems "right" to me. Yes they still run true and don't pick up much weed (if I catch weed it tends to be on the lip or clip)

    Same as Daniel, slow and steady seems to bring the fish in, they work well in reasonably rough water as well, love 'em.

    I re-shape single hooks 90 degrees to account for odd hook mounting.

    I mean belly hangers usually lie along the line of the lure, where these seem to be at right angles to the line of the lure, which is unusual.

    Extra spilt ring ive seen some use because of this, i personally just take the centre treble off as i do with all my lures

    Ah I think I get it............. It aligns the split ring with the long axis of the plug, which may reduce hook movement/hook rash. Also putting the inside of the hook hanger across the plug join may make the plug stronger.

    Smash them out, reel them in! I cut the points off the middle treble, and replace back treble with a single hook. I'm waiting on a couple of R40SSR+ FG as well, my new rod should muller them out nicely.

    I'm the same as you Mark, R40's are next on the menu for me just for when the fish want something a little smaller. I hope they will cast as well as their big brothers.

    Hi Mike,
    About the technique. There is some footage on you tube named Daiwa X-Cross Morethan Animation (russian or polish) thats about a similar Daiwa lure(Morethan X-Cross SSR) That gives you an idea how to fish these shallow divers. Im an ICTlawyer but I havent got a clue how to put a you tube video here on the forum. Sorry about that.
