    I have found, when fished on the bottom like a piece of dead bait they would catch the occasional fish. When fished with floats, or in such a way that they move through the water column the catch rate increases. When cast and retrieved like a lure they work their best, and can out fish traditional ticers. In saying that, I do not use them while Surfcasting. I sometimes have a few flicks while rock or wharf fishing.

    tried using the softbait crabs before as others have posted on here had success, but no joy at all for me….the only good thing is that doggies didnt eat them

    Caught a large Gurnard on a gulp crab today, just had it dragging behind my kayak slowly (no wind so very slow drift).Also caught a Doggie on a Gulp lure…
