Just a small tip I picked up. If you want to try giving your lure more action (if it needs it), and you're using a spin reel, use your finger to hold the line close to the rod near the spool, and wind up. Makes it pulse like an injured fish.

Mike Anda from TopCatch on 'Diversity' last Saturday - 3 snaps from 3 drops NE of Tiri in 35m. These things seem to work....

Not at all - when I first looked at the set-up I was a bit sceptical but it was damn effective. We were drifting in 35m with plenty of wind so no option but to add some weight. I guess you could always add a weight say above a swivel and then run a trace but not sure how that effects the action. Anyone got any ideas on weighting these things in situations like that??

Graham Andrews of Kilwell was trying to introduce a range of lead-crystal sinkers a while back that would have been ideal for using with this sort of rig I think... sadly, the samples I got off him are now up in the islands. I was trying to figure out a less intrusive way of adding weight to these sebiles as well, that (as you have there grunta) was the only way I could think of too.
Was gonna try to sort out a little more this week, but the damn weather has blitzed that.

Hi Grant, there is a couple of ways you can add weight to a flatshad to increase it's sink rate and retain good presentation. The first is applying thin adhesive lead strip to the belly. We do this with many hard body lures to adjust their buoyancy and sink rates. You can add multiple layers for extra weight, just test swim the lure until you get the result you are after. It's available in most good tackle stores in OZ. You can also wrap some lead solder wire around the main shank of each treble, this also works well. Take your time and keep everything balanced and it works fine. The lure Mike was using is an SK version, to get down faster you can go to the 96mm XH-SK that weighs 60grams- it sinks twice as fast

I think the sinker on top of the lure will slide down the line away from the lure on the sink then once it gets to the bottom the lighter lure will flutter down after. I use this on 1/2oz jig heads in deeper water and its very effective on snapper. Having the weight there doesnt seem to affect its efficiency.

These things are alot of fun, only taken it out once but caught a bunch of kahawai, got a couple of snapper but found them really hard work on snaps compared to microjigs etc, will try with a sinker as above, that will save me losing interest in waiting for it to sink LOL
