Did a search and couldn't find too many mentions of these lures...Have got enthused by the following videos and have purchased a Sebile Flatt Shad (SK and SU), and also a Stikk Shad (SU), Think they could work near some groynes, harbour arms/boulders near me. Wondered if anyone has had any experience fishng with these and has any tips on techniques/times when they have been successful.

Like the flatt shad due to the often coloured waters around Brighton, and feel the strong vibrations from this lure could work well in these conditions. The action on the stikk shad in the video appealed. Hope i have made wise purchases!!

Hi Ryan,
I have found that vibration lures are a bit of mystery around the Sussex area, tried them several times. Without any real success.
If the water is coloured I find a standard minnow with a rattle is a much better bet, not sure why. But I continue to try vibration lures in different places and with different techniques-in the hope of finding how/when they will be useful.

Ah - was hoping you'd say they were a great lure. Reckon they are worth a good go - just need them to arrive for the us to give them a dunking! Will keep u posted on any success - or lack of!!

Ryan, hello mate.
I like the idea of soft plastics too. I fish an entirely different part of the world to you but have found Keith and kevin Whites Jersey Bass Guides site to be a great help when it comes to what works, how to rig it, fish it and everything else.

I dont suppose I have managed to digest 10% of this info yet but one day, hopefully, maybe, perhaps, I might get to learn 50% of it before I am too old and decrepit to get to the shore any longer :D
