Hi Guys,

I have read up a lot on dropshotting in the surf with no luck.

Came across this video on Youtube that gives a visual representation of how it's done.

:cool:Let me answer your question this way...and im no expert when it comes to rubbers n plastics...Ima tin man myself...

With the advent of social media ..You Tube ..Instagram and the likes ...EVERYONE and his aunties uncles nephew and niece is NOW an expert on giving advice on how to fish....

You tube is FULL up with all the tutorials...some good some bad and some are downright ridiculous ...

NOTHING and I mean NOTHING beats getting your rod n reel and getting your feet wet and putting in the time and also just watching the sea not looking ...watching!!!...

BUT...there are many out there who watch all these dazzeling videos and skeem...jirre..Im goona go get me a beaut fish like that....ja NEE...

There is nothing wrong with looking up and getting informed BUT there is lots wrong with NOT putting in the time to get to know the fish species out there and what is wrong and what is right as opposed to the actual fish themselves...Sooo...the ONLY way to get out there and do it!!...make notes when its on and when its off...simple really...
