We we're both using Lunker City Fin's'Fish, Texas rigged with cone weights. These fished almost completely weed free. Although the 10g weight was probably a bit OTT for normal use, it was definitely neccessary in the conditions, doubt we would of kept in contact with the lure else.
Anyways, no fish for me(thats 3 blanks in a row now!?!). Stevie managed to winkle out a 2.8lb nicely conditioned fish that put up quite a scrap in the rip.
Got a few days off work now, so hoping for some fish. Had some Megabass Spindleworms turn up today, funny that they smell like Bovril?! Lol. If they work, I may just start smearing my lures in the stuff.
