Most people were catching more on lures then bait, with the most popular being a curly tail soft plastic in motor oil colour.

I caught all mine with a size 1, 1/8 jig head teamed with a munroes soft plastics 2.5 inch curly tail in the caviar colour.


thanks for the tips mate, ill be sure to bring some curly tail plastics then. where abouts did ya catch yours?
