Can be fished using a few different techniques. A long cast and a high-speed retrieve is most popular when site casting schools of fish, such as Tuna, GT’s, Tailor and Mackerel. Slugs can also be dropped to the bottom and vertically jigged, imitating the action of a fleeing baitfish.
Beach Fishing - Use 20-80kg slugs
Offshore Fishing - Use 40-80kg slugs
- Sometimes using a smaller profileslug can get you the bite when largersizes aren’t working.
- If the lure has a shine or reflection to it,then it will more than likely catch fish.
- Mackerel love a fast retrieve!
- Some times it pays to let your metallure sink for a few seconds before quicklyretrieving it, as sometimes the fish aresitting under the bait school.
