Re: Latest Catches


I know this might not be the best place to ask this question but I see a lot of you guys are using braid and perhaps soft-baits for trout fishing. When sea-run trout fishing in the Waimakariri a typical lead head works fine in the slower water. However, for fishing the gut at Rakaia what do you recommend as a good rig for soft-plastics? Do you just use a heavier jig head, or do you add a “D” lead or barrel sinker up the line. What have you found to be an effective rig? How have you done using soft-baits for sea-runs? Thanks Allan
