Our own Alpine Cobra's in the Alpine special,Pink Wings and Pink Bits patterns, Rebel minnows and crawfish,ultra deep Merlins,Stump Jumpers,Rapala minnows and jointed shad raps , RMG Scorpions & Poltergeist.
*Scott :Here is a pic from last weekend fishing Storm Rippin Shad Soft plastics on Saturday. You cant see the lure in its mouth but I can assure you it was caught on the brown pattern I told you about yesterday. This fish was one of 3 caught during a "muddy" bank session in pouring rain in the middle of the day while on a reccy.
This is the 3rd season my mates and I have been using soft plastics for trout.Still chasing up some more pics from the last 2 winter seasons on the lake where we almost only use "storm shads" for trout. There has only been 2 or 3 sessions out of 20 or 30 trips where we have had to change to another lure apart from plastics - David Hogan
*We also had a report of a 7kg brown being taken on a plastic from up around Tolbar
