Congratulations on the season milestone despite all those issues you outlined. What depth do those HBs run to? Ive been looking for some cheap HBs about that size that run <1m deep (preferably 0.5m max)

Around a meter, but you can control the depth with them being a floating shallow diving lure by raising the rod tip on the retrieve..
That's what I did the other day when fishing a few shallow medium/fast water runs that's in the video clip.. it's actually a 55 mm lure too & not 70 mm as I stated in the video which I just added to the post at the bottom of the last photo.... :oops: :oops:

you can check them out on the following site.. https://editor7272.wixsite.com/mysite

400.. that's crazy

I wonder how many of those you have caugh multiple times
You should give it a go in Gippsland Kimtown there’s lots of streams loaded with brown trout.
Yeah I'm aware. Hiking hundreds of kms through leach infested bush and getting wet and cold in the freezing rivers.... nah lol not for me
