Thanks for that. I have noticed that a lot of anglers are using braid and soft-plastics for sea-runs nowadays. I guess you could use the rig shown here: https://fishingmag.co.nz/Searun-Trou … ok-Rig.htm
Just replace the feathered lures with two soft plastics using a couple of light-weight jig heads to hold the lures on. The lead up the line would take it down in the fast water of the Rakaia gut. Is anyone fishing a lure rod with two soft-baits instead of feathered lures?
