just had some of these delivered, didn't think they would be so tiny,was thinking size16/18 hook (its been a while since freshwater) split shot on the nose or carolina, any ideas?, thanks carl
Are you talking about pushing soldering wire into the SP Keith? I imagine you can push this is to get the exact weighting you want. As you can get it in some hefty sizes I reckon it'd be handy for some HRF too?split shot carolina and...
my new method based upon the fact I recently discovered many of the takes I've been missing on carolina rigs have been pollack hitting the shot OTD.
so, enter the inline, leadcore.
no shot for em to grab and its less snaggy HRF too.
Working on it as we speak.
i had great success on those tiny yamas-hita worm bake lures last winter and I can't see these failing Carl.
What outfit are you using Mike? My ULX tends to start losing feel on a 1g jighead, mind you, the new lighter braid my help...Tim, I was out tonight and was trying to battle rain and wind, at one point went to 1.4g jigheads and they feel like cannonballs now. But you can wind down to 0.2g heads and shake them- Plenty of contact there. Retired very wet, and very cold, 4 hours for 1x goby and 1x small Whiting.
0.2-0.4g jigheads are really common in japan, but I still prefer the decoy 0.4g from ****.
