I know Snipe/Garfish can be a pain sometimes, but as you say on light gear they are great fun.
Three species in a hour is cool, really shows just how much potential LRF has here in the UK.
Had giggles fishing for mackerel with small topwater lures yesterday-which was good fun, it doesn't always have to be about the bass!!

Great report Carl.

I should be out right now but my right knee is stopping me moving around too much.
X=Ray dept Thursday so I'll know more shortly.

LRF is wicked and NOT a stop gap to Bass or whatever. Of course, it helps, it seriously helps to fish LRF, get into proper sized fish and when you pick up the old gear...
Well, those of you who have done this know what I'm talking about.

Small metals in LRF is a big focus for me right now and I'm using this down time to make loads of little 'assist' hooks to fit my 3g thru 14g metals.

I'm searching and searching for longer, thinner but not heavy LRF metals. something like 7g but 5 -- 10 cm long and that flutters.
I might try polished aluminium or even copper. Most all flutter baits are way to heavy even for HRF purposes and I feel that small flutters are likely key for bigger snipe based upon the type of hits and grabs they can perform. However, we need the LRF rod to be able to move and lift the lure to re-activate it.

Just so much to learn Carl. Really pleased you've introduced yet someone else to the sport of LRF / HRF.

Another convert you reckon ?
