    I've been fishing for years (like most of us nutters) and although I do catch a good amount of fish, I often wonder if my rigs are fishing efficiently. I've tried different traces and varying hook lengths during the tidal changes and was wondering if somebody out there has some tactical advice or just something that works well for them????

    if your catching loads of fish then your rigs a doing there job

    what i think your trying to say is there not catching big fish
    if there out there you will hook em
    its the same for all of us along the southern coast line

    I think rock nailed it - I feel the same sometimes

    Just take advice from others I found a lot of confidence when I started fishing with a club and basically looked at the other boys rigs to see what they were using...

    Be that nosey/annoying guy that asks questions and looks at other people's set ups

    But like rock said if the fish aren't there mate then doesn't matter what rig and bait your using your not going to catch it

    Good luck mate
