Delicate as hell, but can be deadly! Green Mackerel-y is the one I have done best on, but then its the one I use most. I also remember Keith and Kev saying they do well on them painted yellow when fishing at night

Yes, broken moonlit nights.
Megaflash, when they first became available in France were awesome. I'd never seen hooks so sharp on a plug.
Crap bibs though but brilliant nonetheless.

I liked the standard darker grey mullet colour out of the box.

megaflash, good lure, only problem front hook catches on bib to many times in a session rendering wasted casts, works better without splits and cut hooks.

i would also choose the duo tide minnow slim, x-rap, plus a deep diver, play around with them and get at least one to suspend properly, maybe play around also with a surface lure of your choice when the suns out and starts to warm the shallows.

p.s, why do so many people only have one profile style of lure ?

Good choices - only one surface lure tho'? could be worth adding a z-claw in mullet?
Alex will be leaving the surface lures for a little while as for more lures i am trying to tame the tackle whore in me at the minute but might be worth a look in the coming months..july august ,september....trying to stop the spending bought a load of stuff for Norway over the last couple of weeks.....

lures

Barry,

Great selection, I think we all have the bug at the moment for laying out every lure in the house on the kitchen table and dreaming about big bass. there won't be enough days in the year!

Barry, what is the lure (4th from bottom) in the middle row in the second picture? Have you had success on it?

Cheers
Colm

Love the colours on it, another one for the list!
Not much happening this end so far. A few small Bass (under 2lb) being caught on bait but thats about it.

mmmm

80/20 rule rules

5% of the lures catch 95% of the bass.

Is this your list of that 5%??

Mine would be about 2 lures and 2 soft plastics - I dunno why I bother taking the rest.
