Gents, this is a very interesting thread. Personally I can't add any value though, my only YT experience being a little 3kg fish landed from Bailey's many moons ago.

If you'll excuse me for jumping in on a different tack, @Blaasoppie, may I ask what knot that is you've used to tie on the lure in your pic?

Thanks,
Eugene


Is that not a chain knot?

Guys


Hooked onto a 8-9 Kg yellowtail last week passed coffee bay. Fish was caught of the bricks. Caught using 11ft Assisin Amia spinning rod, max weight 2ounce, coupled with Shimano exage 5000 and 30lb JBD braid.
It was a fight of a life time, but took 15 min to land.

You could but you would be wasting time I think. I don't think it's really on their path. Rather go to sunny cove. You will get fish there.

Good luck landing a fish on Clovelly side. Also generally if the fish are spawning as they do this time of year those shoals that are entering fish hoek will just drive you crazy....They will not eat.... don't ask me how I know this!

Good luck. It's been a good start to the season.

I'm sure you could, but you will be out-fished by the guy with a spoon, who won't be having as much fun as the guy with the plug..something like that. But hey if it gets you your fish that is what counts ;) It may be the ticket if the fish are fussy or balling up on small things and won't take the normal lures..

Listen ok the wind is here for a bit how does that effect the tail inshore! Do they sound or are they active? Casting a spoon could be interesting in this wind.......

Get a Abu Lucas or seriola spoon and you good to go. If the SE is howling always give simons town a try..sometimes its a bit warmer there than surrounding areas which will get cold with the strong SE, that bay seems to get the warm water trapped in there sometimes if you lucky and you could get good fish.
