...just got these new toys in to play with. Hopefully be able to get out next week some time, see how they go!

The top one is one of the new Sebiles from Purefishing, looks good, and having heard so much about them, I'll be interested to see if I can get it to work for me, the second is a new toy from River-2-sea, they call it a Stickbait with a bib (I said "it's a bibbed minnow mate!" but they said "no no, it's a stickbait, but with a bib!!!". Well, it looks like a bloody bibbed minnow to me, BUT!!!! I shall be guided by thems as knows better'n I, and call it a bibbed stickbait, hows that :-) )
It is however a very heavy little lure, I weighed it at 70gms, so it should cast like a bullet, and sink like a stone as well I am picking, so I think it should fit in quite nicely with the Sebile as a Hardbody Bait.
We shall just have to see how they go eh!
I likes getting me new toys, just to keep the TAS ticking over, eh! :-)

I really would like to get near one of those bird work-ups in the gulf if Billy Ho nd I get out next week, and see if I can't get a few snaps on them.
However, a king or two would also go down very nicely indeed... :-)

Changing the hooks and split rings might be an idea.

I wouldn't mind going with singles on them PP, but I am a little concerned a single may stuff up the action. I was thinking though of maybe popping an assist hook on them maybe, replacing the belly treble, and a single in the tail.
After I have played with these as they are I will quickly know if they need re-rigging. The hooks on the R2C do look a little lightweight, and appear to be only bronzed, but by cripes they are sharp little bug..... fellows.
Hmmm... coutas.... hmmmm.... well, we'll just have ot hope they last long enough eh :-)

The Sebile is only 25gms or so, so it is not hugely heavy, I am just wondering if a sinker directly above the lure would help it dive into snapper territory faster, or would that stuff up the lures action. The R2C one shouldn't have that problem I think.

Nice CA Thumbs Up 

And yes it is a bibbed minnow always has been always will be, a twitch/stick bait is different.

Here's a couple of toy's I am getting made (examples)... About a month or two away...These are purely for collecting. May even give one a go myself, I have some prop baits to build so may try one on these....

Sorry, I inadvertently misspelt Sebile! No offence meant.

Tried one on wednesday, 1st chance I had had, but as we were in 40m over anchorite at the time, it just wasn't able to get down deep enough. However, I shall persist! :-) Really I want ot get into a good work-up, that will be the true test, using it where fishing is on, and the fish are very active.
