hi mate, have you bought some or do you want to buy some ?? wrecking at this time of year will probably be for the early pollack, firetail jelly worms work very well for pollack, of the storm lures I would go for the sandeel type as they will take both pollack and bass for cod go for a twintail lure, It always pays to have a selection of lures in your box as one may work one day but not the next it's trial and error for the first couple of drifts to find out what their taking and whats down there. for more information on wrecking go to http://www.members.lycos.co.uk/carnagecrew hope this all helps a bit and good luck.

Hi Mate if your fishing from a charter boat the skipper will net it, pollack cod and ling will be just about dead on arrival at the surface because their swim bladders will have gone and by grabbing your trace you will be able to pull them in reach of the net, bass will be a bit more lively again by grabbing your trace or moving back into the boat you will bring the fish close enough to net a good skipper will tell you what he wants you to do in order for him to net the fish, don't worry too much about that end of it concentrate on catching them, when you've landed your first one you'll see how it goes and just want to get a bigger one

Hi Tony, There is a theory that when pedatory fish (such as bass & pollack) attack they use the eye of their prey to line up on, taking them just behind the eye, that is why when you mount your hook in any soft lure with an eye, the hook point should be not more than an inch away from it, The lures that I use mainly fire tails and lumo type lures glow and it does'nt seem to matter where the hook is (to a degree) and these have not got eyes on them. When you mount a live sand eel the way the professional bass lads do, the hook is about an inch away from the eye and just nicked into the soft underbelly of the eel, and as the lures you describe are trying to emulate a live eel the hook should be no more than the inch down the body from the eye. Some manufacturers at the moment seem to be obsessed with making the eyes as realistic as possible, my tip to you is keep a good selection of lures in colour, size and type in your box as you never know what they will take on the day.
