I was wondering what setup you have eg line, rod and reel. I have started using 6 pound braid with a 1-2 meter length of flurocarbon trace attached to it. I have had a lot more hook ups with this light setup and it is very strong. I have also started using these lures called Salmo’s. They look like rapalas but are a bit more life like. One of my mates that spin fishes a lot recons the different between Rapalas and Salmo’s is that with a rapala you will get a lot of follows and with salmo’s you will get lots of hookups.
