i was wondering if anyone slides for edibles...the reason for this is if there is a far bank that you want to get to it would be easer to cast a sinker only to get the distance...then use a small slide with thin mono trace on the slide....

any comments would be interesing

i have slid baits for eds , liveys , sharks basicly always hassle you , best bet is to use either a short piece of steel , or , i use a 1mm slide trace no wire , so if the big nunu comes he just bites you off , i havent had great catches with edbaits on the slide , but i have clapped the fish on livebaits and slides , KOBs and one Leerie.

I have slid for ed's(whole pilchard with a squid "tail"), got a monster rock cod in Richard's bay and a cob near Onrus.More than that, it normally end's up with the tax man being returned to the sea with a few swear word's:hyst:

Personally i wud say use some steel cos you may just land up with an non-ed & you may loose the fish & then kick yourself ,

I wud say go lighter & use Bleeding wire ...

Just my take on the question !!!

Cheers

I have been wondering about this for a while myself, and have been meaning to try this.

The pro's:

- Like you said, it may be easier to get your sinker alone onto a far bank, and then send your bait there per slide.

- If you stuff up your cast, or if you are not entirely happy with where your cast has landed, you can reel in and cast again without stuffing up your carefully prepared, and rather expensive bait.

- Your carefully prepared bait are not subjected to the acceleration at the start of the cast, the wind during the cast and the impact at the end of the cast, and should look a bit better when it reaches it's destination.

- you do not have to worry much about streamlining your bait, so you may have one or more options for adding stuff that will provide more movement in the water, but that would increase your wind-drag on a cast.

- On it's way to the stopper, your bait will leave a long trail of scent in the water that may lead fish closer in, or down-stream of your bait's final position to your bait. Your bait's scent is thus better dispersed, covering more water.

The Con's:

-You are likely to pick up unintended non-eds, and get taxed on the lighter traces and more finesse presentations used for edibles

- you may get burn-offs if your slide and bait does not get to the stopper ring. I guess a lighter bait may be a bit more difficult to get down to the stopper.

- I also guess that using floatation on your bait, as is often the preferred method for ineds, may also interfere with the working of the non-return slide

 

All in all, I think it may well be worthwhile to try! Hopefully I'll get to do some "experimentation" from Wednesday afternoon!!!

always be certain to slide a livey on a steeel trace.

will get you an ed or in ed depends on who rocks up first.

select the correct hook size as well too big and it wont set, too small and the fish will miss it.
