What rig do you use? I keep it as simple as possible. One of those skinny barrel sinkers as a running sinker between two swivels, with trailing hook. The line to the hook being lighter. So if it snags up it just busts the hook off, so its an easy retie of a new hook.
Never attempt to use paternosters you will drive yourself nuts with the snags
Dropped enquiries are often little maccas. They suck it in and out a couple of times before taking it, so best not to strike straight away
Leader running 30-60cm ish. Still continued interest, cheese significantly 'out fishing' worms in the interest category. Changed from a circle to baitholder for the cheese, changing up how I cut the cheese and bait to try and convert one of the slow takes into a hookup.
Hits all day - barely sat down but couldn't get a hook in anything. Awesome day out regardless, barely any wind, nice temp and getting outdoors again was enough for me. Sometimes that's how it goes!
