Had a frustrating couple of attempts at working Xlayers through rocky gulleys. Got snagged practically everywhere i tried, even though i thought i knew the ground i was over. Have stopped using any jig head that exposes the hook and fished weedless with cone heads but i'm even loosing these as well. It must be the cone head that gets caught? I'm casting out, letting them sink to the bottom, pulling up gently with a wiggle from the rod tip and letting them sink again, pausing and repeating. Trouble is i inevitable get snagged and loose it. The above technique obviously works fine over sand and has not been too costly through gulleys during rough weather, i guess because the power of the waves can flush it out again but i'm unsure how to fish with them in calm seas where once you're snagged your bugg***. Basically I've a good idea how to work an Xlayer but i'd appreciate any ideas anyone has on using them over very rough ground?
