Ryan you were right

Forgot to mention in me post under Reports ,but Jesse and I driftbaited most of the morning with good results .It is a great way to fish ,and a good way to catch fish .
I got 6 fish for the day and all fell to the driftbait. I was using 30 pound mono as leeder witch was a bit of a bummer as i snappad of two good fish both i guess were sambo's

Yeh it certainly has changed my aspect of catching bottom fish and whilst being very effective it's put the fun factor back into it for me. 30lb is very light, i was using 80lb originally with my D/bait rigs but had a few dhues chaff through so now i've uped it to 100lb Jinkai plus.

Good to here mate Laughing

FWA episodes Ryan where you explained the theory and then demonstrated the effect of drift baiting. It all made a great deal of sense and the fish you caught proved it.
