Just thinking where to start night plugging and was wondering if there any rules to tips I need to start with. It is my intention to have a few practice sessions but any help would be appreciated.
Huge topic and one which kjw and I will address in some detail when we get the chance after the initial migration here.Just thinking where to start night plugging and was wondering if there any rules to tips I need to start with. It is my intention to have a few practice sessions but any help would be appreciated.
In a world of super fast rods, high technology andkjw said:Bucktails come in a vast amount of weight's and you can fish them with or without trailer's,the best size's i've found from the shore angler's point of view are 1/4 oz,1/2 oz and 3/4 oz,but sometimes the slightly heavy one's come in handy,the best colour's i've found to use in daylight or in the pitch black of night are all white,white,and did i mention white,the best way's of fishing these are to just have enough weight for the bt to lightly trip bottom with a slow to moderate retrieve and not plough the deck,to get the right size bt for the jod at hand is the hardest part,you can alter the bt's desent through the water column buy changing the weight of the bt and the type and lenght of the trailer to get the perfect combo,the type's of trailer we use are uncle josh porkrinds 270s,sluggo's and curly tails.
why even bother fishing the bt,because they catch fish,end of.
the best approach to fishing them is to cast them up currant,and fish them with a slow straight retrieve(when i mean slow i mean sloooooow),a stop and go retrieve,or let them swing through wetfly style,the deal is that fish spend about 70%+ of there lives on or near the bottom in pursuit of food so put the lure where the fish are,the other great thing about these lures are they are cheap to make,so for all the guy's that don't like losing lures in bottom structure your pray's have been answered with bt's.
mould size usually determines hook size m8.what range sizes of hooks and weights?
