    My pb bass in my avatar took a big sluggo , the best thing about the 7.5 inch is when the nose splits you can trip it with a stanley blade and still have a substantial lure !

    Top job. James. I assume you are using an offset hook " worm hook " or the texposer?

    Might be worth you trying a hitchhiker hook. Since changing to these I have almost zero problem with any nose splits. 6/0 does it for me .

    I was using a large offset hook gamakatsu i believe , i must try to use the hitchhikers more i like the concept of the owner hooks with the centering pins ! Its generally after a strike when the lure ends up on the fluorocarbon and it rips the nose but the hitchhiker would eliminate that. Any particular brands you have found good ?

    Are you fishing them in estuaries or open coast Andy ?

    Mainly in the Menai Straits James, it's not strictly speaking an estuary but it fishes pretty much like one.

    Im Irish so i cant say ive fished it but if theres a current match the head weight (12g generally is fine) to the current less current less weight , more current more weight. Cast uptide into the flow and close the bail arm. Rod tip high and let the current move the lure you should feel a bump bump as the lure bumps along in the current and thats basically how to fish them in estuaries. A straight retrive or just hopping them back to you can work well too :) hope that helped

    That's pretty much how I've been fishing them James so it's good to know that I'm doing something right ;).

    When I first started I would lose them to snags within a few casts but though they last a bit longer now I still can't buy a hit on one.
    I guess I'll have to keep trying and hopefully 2017 will be my year :horsesword:.

    Depending on Venue I might even just carry a select few Of the above.
    Self Disclipine is key :cool::cool:

    Unfortunately it's a completely different story with the Sp's and Disclipine is out the window .

    Tbh I got them last year with the intention to use,,, yet they've seen little to no use,, For no other reason than the little time I've had available to get out.
