Much talk about soft baits and vibration baits working, but do people see small, hard, diving lures having a place in UK LRF? Or does the flexibility of other baits generally rule them out?

Water depth may play a part I guess?

Oh yea, absolutely.
Those small 20 - 45mm lures nail Triggers and that is sort of HRF but...
I reckon the little white bream, the small wrasse species etc will be all over those hard lures m8 and they are LRF targets.

Are you talking Sinking or floating Keith? ...although I seem to remember you saying that you'd caught all the Triggers on slow floaters? Which lures were you actually catching them on? Sizes etc?

Slow floaters.

I've got little plugs of all makes but I was using little crankbaits last season.
Now though, I have a much wider range.

I have used small plugs for bream and caught on them. The were floaters/slow floaters, great fun to use as well. The downside was tackle losses compared to soft plastics. Because the ground was very rocky and often over oysters I eventually stopped using them because of cost. SPs are cheap as chips and I didn't mind losing them. I have just bought a few LRF size top water plugswhich should be fun. I also intend digging out what bream plugs I have left and give them a try.
So I think they will be successful but if we have to buy Japanese maybe cost prohibitive.
