hi.

has anyone used the savage gear artificial sandeels?

anyone found a preference to colours and / or sizes?

i'm thinking the pearl and sandeel colours look pretty good.

Decent lures but i personally prefer sidewinder lures & there cheaper but that's not the reason i prefer them, they came in a variety of sizes & colours & in around 8 weeks they will have a new range that rattle

That's the best advice on the colour I got of loads using them, but I used Redgill.

Depends what your fishing for, rhubarb/ custard are my favourite but they are all good including red gill, but to be honest one day the fish will like that colour the next day they won't touch it so your better getting a small verity of different colours & sizes, i guess you could buy a pack of each make & find your own favourite

i already have wallets full of gills of all sizes and colours, usually takes me longer to decide which one to use than get to the fishing spot.

the only reason i'm looking at these (mainly due to the price) is that i'm hoping to do a bit of bass fishing while drifting on a kayak this year. the water is reasonably shallow and the tide doesn't run that quick, so was hoping to bounce and troll some lures if i can't get any live bait.

these are the most life like looking lead heads that i've seen, i think i could present and work these better than a gill, boom and weight.

12.5cm eels would probably be big enough in those conditions as for colour it can vary what works in different areas i do well with sandeel and dirty silver but never had much on pearl around here, big hammer shads are worth a try too and much cheaper!

The good old fashioned redgill with no lead freelined 50 yds behind a moving yak will get fish in shallow water.
May be usefull when you are moving from one leadhead casting mark to another .
