anyone trying softbaits12/07/2011 at 3:08 am #18416
These been a long thread over on the TT forums.
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.13/07/2011 at 12:17 am #18418gunnercoopsParticipant

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…18/07/2011 at 6:29 am #18445rdeejayParticipant
