NielG!!! Fantastic post, this is really informative and absolutely awesome... I also remember reading your original post a couple of years back and based most of my lure purchases on your recommendations. Thank you!

I used to throw lures all the time, but got a bit lazy when I started fishing with live bait. Suppose its time to dust off the "spinners" again!

If you could only take 5 lures what would they be? It mos works that way, when you catch a fish on a particular lure it becomes your GO TO and you fish it all the time. Until by some supernatural intervention you catch something on another lure and then that one becomes your newest best lure...

With my limited experience, if I had to take 5 it would be (in no particular order):

* 3/4oz Seal Point white, the long one (not the fat short one)
* Strike Pro Thai Stick
* 1oz McArthy paddle tail in pink, purple & orange


I haven't caught one fish on a bucktail... But I know they work! Its just that I run out of patience after a couple of casts and then go sit by my "livie" rod... (I know its frowned upon by the die hard lure fishermen ;) )

Why not spool the whole reel with braid? You might be in trouble if a bigger fish picks you up immediately after you've cast a spoon some distance

90m in total? This doesn't sound right, I get around 220m of 20lb J-braid with a few turns of mono on the bottom of the spool, on my 4000 stradic which is the same size spool
