Leasowe 19th May.

Postby DaveM » Mon May 20, 2019 10:22 am

Had a session over high at Leasowe. Last time out I had experimented with hair rigs to avoid deep hooking. The rig caught fish but unfortunately were still deep hooked. A bit more research and I found a bristle rig, where a piece of fine wire is inserted horizontally above the hook. This prevents the fish taking the hook down beyond the 'T' bar.(see photo below) Image
First cast a flounder and the hook had not gone down below the 'T' bar.ImageImage
Caught plenty of flatties not one deep hooked with the 'T' bar above the hook.
Used a normal rig on my second rod which did result in some deep hooking, so the'T' bar does seem to work without putting fish off.Imagebest flounder of the day.

There were also some schoolies about.Image

Atmos shot.

All in all a pleasant session.
