    I like it, keep saying I am going to make some myself but not got round to it.

    You may have just pushed me into having a go

    I know , I had all the best intentions to get out and make the most of it last year , but only managed a couple of sessions.
    Promised myself to make time this year.

    What's worse is that where we fish there is a lot of mullet.

    I fear I am missing an opportunity as I don't have the right tools for the job.

    Need to get on eBay and purchase some components

    I was put onto the above ,,, Very helpful/knowledgable .
    Last time out I went to one of my Old ( Bait fished) Mullet marks, after fair run of Blanks for the Silvers. Normally this mark is teaming with thin lips,,
    Two hrs and not a mullet in sight,
    Plenty of schoolies though
    :lolsign:,,, typical

    Mike Ladles blogs have some good designs for these.
    Like the quick change link idea. I Use them in river bait rigs.
    Try using a thin bit of silicone tube over them, to cut the risk of them coming unattached with repeated casting. I do that with bait rigs when casting is much less.

    Rob Pope is an expert on using baited spoons - well he's read a book on it so he must be an expert ;)

    Here is a post what I wrote a few years ago on making baited spinners for mullet.

    It's not the only way to make them but one that I have found to be the most successful after many years of experimenting.

    A big part of what I wanted to achieve was to have a Base where the parts where interchangeable, so I swap over Spoon size/colour, trace length to suit the Session/mark.
    I was kindly sent a Clevis that would allow this, so will see what happens .
    I'm going to switch out the Aberdeen for Long shank carp hook,, big enough to clear the worm

    Is anyone using swivel up the line to Counter twist issues?

    Hi Ryan

    If you're using braid you should have no problems with line twist.

    Even when I used to use mono, line twist was never a big problem as the blade and clevis do all the revolving (or should do) but a small JB clip or similar wouldn't hurt if you want to include one in your set-up.
