Thanks JVW,I use the Kingfisher leader material. It works great for me and has never let me down. Here is a pic. I hope you can see. This is only some of the tackle I use.

Cheers,
Harrie


Great post Harrie

Question, I see you don't use the wire grapnels, but the nylon ones....any particular reason as I find the wire ones grab better?

Maybe that's why I don't get as many hook ups as you? LOL, we fisherman will try anything     :wfish

::tight: When will you use beads?

RussellC - If I could, I would use the beads with every sliding rig to protect the knots from the sliding sinker. Sometimes I will put one bead sliding to the hook together with a skirt when the fishing is tough to attract more and quicker. It really works.

Prodigal Sun - No reason why I use the Nylon Grapnels. Just got them as they were in stock. Use any you like. I also like the wire grapnels more to tell you the truth.

Hi Harrie,

Are the kob and stenie traces sliding sinkers?


JVW - Yes, the Kob and Steenbras are sliding sinkers. As I said before, it depends where you fish and how good you know the area. Sometimes the stiff rigs works better at places like "die dam" etc, but here the steenbras must be sliding. Remember to test both if you don't know the water well and see for yourself which works best. That is the only way you will get the answer.

Harrie, what is the biggest Shad you landed without a steel trace. Do you often get bitten off?

Jaco , I'll let harrie answer too cuz he Seems to Know his onions , but if you don't use steel - at Least use a long shank .

when the shad get big they Feed aggressively , and you Might get lucky and hook one in the lip as often happens with the smaller ones -but if it's a nunu and he swallows your hook ......be prepared to stand with your head in your hands .....
