    I noticed 'fluro treble hooks' while browsing recently.

    How do sea trout behave in slack water over low tide, do they still feed or go quiet?

    I've never found totally slack water to be great. However, think about a sea pool scenario on an estuary, getting somewhere to LT. The fish might be staging /holding or coming through it at some point on the drop.

    Slack water doesn't give the sea trout any advantage over its prey.

    However that's not to say that you won't catch at that time.

    My biggest sea trout have all come on or about high or low water.

    There's been no mention of spinners like Mepps and Flying Cs, are they better in the rivers than the sea or is just spoons work better?

    Yes spinners with blades work too. They key is to find what works for you locally.

    I've seen guys take plenty of sea trout & bass on Flying Condom type lures in the sea.

    I bought one the other day made by Fog called a 'Flying Prawn'.

    I know a couple of local farm hands who catch sea trout on a tidal river very locally but they use worms so probably wont have a clue about lures. They still don't believe me when I mention the bass ban :rolleyes:

    So far all my sea trout hook ups have been flukes so I'm looking forward to getting out when the weather improves. There's a window tonight in darkness two hours either side of low but small tide range and offshore wind is putting me off. I might go anyway for a bit of practice.

    it's been adapted to spin rather than wobble?

    Rigged this way it has a less erratic action & rotates one way, then the other.

    This lure is deadly rigged either way. I have added a small swivel to this one.

    Does anyone use a fly dropper? I have it set up that way at the moment but have only caught 2 fish. And one was a minnow on the fly. But the conditions have been tough here for the last 3 weeks

    Occasionally on a type of pulley rig with a small ring, small bead and very small swivel. If I hook a fish on the dropper the lure kind of lifts out the way( most of the time) It is a bit of faffing, best tied before you get on the beach. Mostly, if I feel I'm getting follows and nothing is working I tie about 1ft of heavier fluro on to the eye of the treble, below the in-line. Usually with a slim profile epoxy fly, you certainly get some tangles but it also converts and catches fish. I sort of stop it before it hits the water, get a little turnover with that.

    Hi Kalim, i use a fly dropper, something with movement so it looks good on a spin stop. I set it up on a pully system in case im over mixed ground and the fish take the dropper, it stops the metal snagging. Brilliant thread lads.

    Sorry Martin just read your reply about the pully system, you beat me to it. I set it up at home like you say and use use rods wrapslike the carp boys use to transport the rod set up.

    The lrf smaller sized eels are useful for coastal sea trout.
