Most guys select sinking plugs purely to beat the wind.Destined to become a much bigger part of our armoury, but how do you fish yours?
Ok, so you arrive at your mark, it's a flooding tide with an hour or 2 before high. Do you cast, count down a few seconds, twitch, reel a few turns and repeat? Do this again but slowly working the column to hopefully find the fish? Sink and draw all the way back to your feet? Cast, twitch, sink, twitch, reel hard for a few turns, twitch, sink etc? Do any of you actually let a plug (hard plastic) hit the bottom before reeling in?
Is it a mix of the above or do you have a killer technique you can share :wink: ?
One of the top plugs over here, the Zonk, is misused by 70% of purchasers too.
Sinking plugs are most effective when they are 'sinking'.
