    Im just wondering what lures do you refuse to leave home without ? Im trying to gather information on the most succesful lures. I have to say i wont leave home without Fiiish Black Minnows , Lunker City Sluggos , Senkos , Ima komono Sf-125s and a Patchinko 100. The rest that i carry arent as important. Whats your never leave home without lures ? James

    All the rest I carry I might as well leave at home,
    So why do I take them??????

    Maybe the most unashamedly commercial, boring, uninspired list ever to appear on the internet
    Fiiish minnows, gatarides and a patch 100 just incase its one of those days.
    Almost shameful how many lures I have and yet most haven't seen the water in at least 2 years

    SGSE. I find more and more often, I'm happy to head out with just five or six in my pocket.

    I havent tried the tackle house node yet so maybe i should try that , ive tried the x140s but always found the x120 to catch more for me. Its a pity i cant get those storm sandeels the mice chewed up the pack i had

    I havent tried the zonks yet im not sure if my marks will allow for a deep diver. Is it the floatimg or sinking and hinged or normal bib ?

    I like the sgse with the open point jig head but my marks are rough ground and i find the weedless jig head to snap very easily ?

    Both the hinged bib versions float, the fixed bib is a sinker.
    Yoro yoro the shallowest at 3ish foot the hi pitch at around 4-5 and the fixed is a sinker anything from 5ft to 20ft plus.
    One thing is they are unashamedly fragile, its ridiculous sometimes. some you'll have for 2 years and they're fine, others you will literally break first chuck. it's known for me or my mates to do a few in a session. I must have 40 odd write offs in the loft.
    Personally if i was from a "clear water" area i probably wouldn't bother, but fishing mainly in sussex where its usually either stirried up milky tea colour or a long long chuck to clarity the zonk is invaluable.

    Ah that makes sense i found one of the hinged bibs washed up in kerry with a smashed bib ive seen guys using the plastic from CD cases to repair the bibs on fixed bibs. It might be worth a punt in my local irish estuaries

    I hardly ever use the actual SG heads. I use ball jig heads and tend to go as light as conditions allow. You can fish slower, lower and with less chance of snagging;)

    I love the dc9 especially okonowa red belly. It's perfect for shallow ground & it had a nice lazy wobble on a slow retrieve.

    PS - it does cast like a bullet too

    I always select the lures for a particular mark, time of day, time of season to go into my Daiwa 12 lure container bum bag.100% of the time it will contain a bay ruf manic,a vulture,a patch 100 and a patch II,the other 8 will be interchangeable. I will also carry a box of various SP's sakuras,hybrids,wave worms,SG eels etc
