After last Saturdays sesh where we were having to cast straight out into quite a strong wind, i am left wondering why lure manufacturers havnt come up with something to give you the distance ,but in plug with a good action. So many lures ,including the £20 + just dont have the weight that you often need.Even the top end pluggs ( zonk 120) were struggling to get out as far as you wanted when the wind picked up, so why can they not make a range of them much heavier ( even up to 30-35 g by adding wax or sillicone inside to give you the weight to get "out there". i cant see why it would be so difficult to do or why it would affect the action at all. any ideas?

Trevor,
Try something like like the Duo Rough Trail, it is a lure DESIGNED to be fished on those rough windy days.

Or for something a little deeper the Larus.

Daiwa do the lunker hunter-basically a beefed up Salt pro

Another Daiwa lure that holds it own in windy conditions is the LD version of the 17cm Shoreline Shiner Slim

And that is before you have to resort to casting jigs, Kamuy Press Bait,two tobies stuck together etc etc

The 46g Fake Fish Bullet was flying out there during a short session off a steep shore. Lovely action too.

Also have a look at lures like the Tackle House Int, a very heavy lure for its size that has a good swimming action when retrieved and works its way towards the surface. Another favourite of mine are the many types of vibtration baits both silent and rattling. Most of these are sinkers, generally a floating bait will be more affected by the wind than a denser sinking bait.

I find my red ultimate one helps with the casting distance can really punch the lures out there..

also casting quite low seems to help in the wind too

Hi if you really need to get a lure out there maybe use a redgill with a bubble float 4-5ft up the trace. This casts 40-50 yards even when it's windy and catches fish, reel slowly though.
