    I have been carrying this lure with me on my rare daytime sessions waiting for the right opportunity to use it.
    Its 28g and as you can see I have replaced the treble with a clouser.

    After about five casts yesterday this feisty bass took an interest - result.

    Nice result.....diamond jigs and bucktail are used to good effect by US surfcasters from what I've read.

    A proper result there Gareth :clap:, just goes to show that you don't need all the latest fancy gear to catch bass ;).

    Gary ,
    Probably a bit of both ,can we classify that lure as another hybrid.

    It would not work without the other kind of thing .

    Reminds me about the old Wrecking days , where a plain Chrome Pirk would be out fished by a dresses Pirk that had a Orange or Red Muppet over the Treble .
