I Just use one softbait now , 1/2 Oz with a bleeding banana grub. I used to chop and change all the time and ended up with my bait out of the water more than in it. Technique is everything too. Cast forward of your drifting boat and retrieve. Keep your bait near the bottom with heaps of movement.
Most importantly find the fish first and then set your drift so you end up with your bait on top of them

Looking forward to those boil ups. Last Autumn never saw one around the Rangi ,motutapu,rakino area,despite always looking. Unlike other years when they were plentiful.
Hope they show this year.
Make a nice change from snapper.
