Hello,

I'm Klaas from Holland.
A few times a year we go shorefishing in the Baltic for cod.
We usualy fish over rough grounds.
I did some tests with bait clips (20 lb hook line, 60 cm long)
Only 50% of the casts were succesfull (hook stayed in the clip)
The other 50% the line god in tangled (mixed up with rig boddy)

Does someone know a solution? (maybe use 30lb?

Kind regard Klaas

Use 40 pound for hook legnths, a good quality line should be stiffer and less likely to tangle.

Hi Zeevisser,

Welcome to our Forum.

I am not a beachcaster and don't feel qualified enough to answer your question, but I am sure that Bluebeard and the other members who beachcast will come to your assistance.

Cheers

Drew

Hello again,

This is realy a great Forum . The lay-out is the same
as the German one: "Anglerboard" Allso a great Forum.
I fisit this forum a lot because the germans fish the Baltic shores.
In the baltic you have other rules of nature (for example no tide)

In holland we don't have a forum like this one. The Dutch are a little
low on giving info...haha

HI Zeevisser, welcome .
I'm wondering what sort of fish I can catch around Haarlem in Holland as my step daughter has married a Dutchman ( nice chap ) and at some point will visit his mother over there some time soon .

thanks Dai

Hi Zeevisser and welcome,
here is something you can try,use relay clips and SRTsprings but instead of just relying on the tension of the relay clip rubber to keep the clip in position ,place a small copper crimp immediatly behind the relay clip on the snood side then place the rubber over the end of the clip,you will have to cut the rubber down a little to allow for the crimp..only put a small amount of tension on the springs,or sometimes they may not release.sorry if this sounds confusing but it works for me.good luck! Scotty
