Kevin, have a look in the competition section and there is a list of the largest Wrasse taken on SP's and what they have been taken on. There certainly a trend. Also, have a look on Keiths blog and the HRF section, as well as lots of the catch reports in the CI section, as there are loads and loads of posts on HRF fishing, most of which involve Wrasse.

The best SP seems to be the X-Layer. Which is typical, as its the most expensive and the Wrasse take great pride in demolishing them. Need to see if the DIY X-Layers do the same job. Crawdads work, as do some worm type things. They will take little plugs, but most of us concentrate on SP's now. The technique seems to be bumping and leaving, hugging the roughest ground there is, boulders being a favourite. There is loads to it though, and it is constantly being refined, so just have a read through.

I've had wrasse on Xlayers, DOA Cal Shad Tails, Big hammers in 3 inch (brown colours), senko's, reins rockvibe baits...

Basically, in my experience, anything small enough to eat!! The bigger fish do seem to prefer the xlayers though. But one of the forumites here had one over 7 on a senko last year, there's a report somewhere.
