2 Fish 1 Lure

But in this case... the worst one ever...

 

Went down to the usual spot again today. Good conditions but.... tons of blowies. Literally. Tried out the new HRT lures, but could only get loads of blowies coming out the dark chasing it down.

I was fishing with bait for awhile, getting smashed by blowies over and over again, but i had seen in the water 4 nice sized Bream and knew they were around. At one point i was reeling up my bait (cause it had weed stuck to it) and 2 massive sized Bream, the biggest thing ive seen in the water before were following next to the bait (must of been atleast 50/45cm each). But unfortunately the blowies were hounding at the bait and the bream werent going for it :( 

By the time i got my bait out there again they were gone. No luck this time either.

Leader

You might want to chuck some leader on rather than straight braid to your lure, might find that you have a bit more success

 and cut that tag end off a bit closer to the lure, you want your bait or lure well presented, especially for bream fishing!!

Hahahah world's best ad for the new HRT.

Plenty of blowies caught on better lures though hey.

Mitch I tie a bimini twist at the end of my braid and I join my leader to it with a uni knot.  I generally use 6lb Black Magic fluoro braid.  I like a long leader personally (around 1.5m) as I change lures a fair bit if things aren't working and this way it doesn't disappear too quickly each change.

Sorry Ben lol, to say not to

Mon, 2011-05-02 08:04

Sorry Ben lol, to say not to use that lure is a bit of a joke tbh. If it helps i was also using SX40's, Baby Vibes, Atomic Hardz and plenty of other good lures all of which was being followed and bitten by blowies. There was seriously loads of them out there... i would real in the lure and out of the shadows you would see an army of them following behind. 

So if your gonna avoid that lure, your gonna avoid some of the other best bream lures mentioned?
