cast them out, wind in slow and vary the speed to see what works best on the day. Too fast & they'll run across the shallow bottom. Let them pause for 5 seconds sometimes as well. perch & bream with hit them on a slow wind, trout a bit faster.
for bream I usually crank them (move the lure ~20cms twice in a row and then pause). Trout definitely like a bit more pace though
eddyt wrote:Never caught a fish on a floating hard body yet so total noob here. When would you use them for bream over sinking lures? Do you cast towards the middle of a lake/river or are they more for the edges and shallow patches? For example on the Tambo river or Metung
This popped up as I was writing the above.
It really depends on where the bream are sitting and feeding on as to what and where to throw. In the systems mentioned above these will work well cast around edges, shallows or snags.
