Just started fishing again, trying to get in as much free time as possible before our first baby arrives in November!!!

Armed my self with some new braid and a hand full of lures. Rapalas J13, J11, X rap sub surface and a popper. Any way 10 hours + on these plugs no luck. Put on a trusty plastic sidewinder boom, bass.

Any way really want to catch on a surface plug but getting feed up not. Any spots to try and tips on uses plugs. How do you cast a J11 more than 15 meters??

Thanks
John

Welcome John . . love your Beer :p.

Best way to get a J11 out more than 15 meters, is to float it on the top during an early morning session smothered in fish-oil, and tempt a Gull to take it. Let the Gull fly out around 50 meters, then flip the bail-arm, and strike 'HARD' whilst winding down. The lure should release from the Gull, and plop nicely into the sea at full range.

Hope that helps ;).

Actaully the best method i've found is to tie the J11 to the Ferry wait until the line goes slack so i know it has turned around and therefor at it futherist point a away. Then Work the plug across the entier Solent. Now wheres that big reel gone.

Welcome from another newbie John.

I know the Island well, lived there for sixteen years before moving here, though unfortunately I wasn't fishing then. Still go back often as I have family over there, though I may have to start taking my rod now as well. Can't help regarding catching anything though, I am just at the stage of throwing out the lure and reeling back :)
