Increase your Chances

Post by rabbi2 » Sat Mar 19, 2011 8:02 am

Although it might seem a bit basic for some, this is primary intended for those that can't manage two rods or don't possess two rods.

Put a snap swivel on the end of your shock leader so that you can change your trace quickly, and have a spare trace already baited up.

As soon as you wind in with your catch, change traces and get your line back in the water, Then you can deal with the fish you have caught and then bait that trace up ready for the next one.

This will at the very least give you more of an edge in any of the comps even though it wont put two traces in the water at the same time although after saying that most comps are restricted to one rod.

Ah well at the very least it may improve your catch rate
Cheers
keith :D :D

i was digging worms yesterday and there was loads of small sandeels about 2inc long jumping out the sand so the bass could be after them as i said im going to use a 2 hook flapper at about 80yds and one hook about 30 yds on the same rod in case the fish are close in

INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF CATCHING.

1st, Try not to go with Rabbi2,
2nd, If keith says hes going to Fleetwood, head for Blackpool, you know his mark is going to be barren. >:) >:) >:)
3rd, If you do find yourself at the same mark as keith, there are certain steps you should take. Bloody great LONG ones, >:) as far down the beach as you can get. ;)
Lastly, do the opposite to keith, and your catch rate will improve. >:) >:)

If like me you cant follow this good advice, just have a great day fishing with him, you wont regret it. And neither will the fish. :D :D >:D< >:D<

Instead of a snap swivel, use a gemini link clip. Much smaller than a snap link swivel ;)

Agree with you 100% on the gemini link but I have know the trace to come off on a bad cast and besides a snap swivel stops you winding the damn thing through the top eye. Also allows your trace to turn in the tide.

trace

Hi all,

I use a Gemini Link at the end of my shock leader and a swivel at the top of

my Traces, I have never yet had a problem with the Gemini links going

through the top eye or comer unclipped, also I use my hook snoods are tied

to a small swivel on the trace bodies to allow for movement, when using

clipped rig's cascade swivels are the way to go :D

just to be a little perverse but i put the swivel on the end of my shock leader and a gemini clip on the end of my rig i find it picks up a lot less weed, the down side is most commercially tied rigs have a swivel at the top and are therefore incompatible, although gemini do make a double ended clip i keep for emergencies B-)
