macs if you see 1 in the live well ask them to scope it for you. big swim baits 7" or bigger i use a 4oz jig head. they will eat anything i got them on perch sand dabs lizard fish live an dead squid. big hooks i fish 6/0-9/0 lings have a giant mouth. live rock fish work better then strips
Swimbaits work as good as any natural bait, and in a lot of cases they'll outfish bait becaue you can cover a lot more ground. I've had 20 fish days using swimbaits. Will also get you some nicer grade rockcod. I throw them with a baitcaster and it's a lot of fun to have one hammer your bait on the retrieve.
Normally I am using 14 oz. sinker dropper loop style (sinker on the very bottom). Can I put a 7 or 8 inch white swim bait a couple of feet above the sinker ?
Should I keep the lead head ( 4 or 5 oz) in the swim bait or just a plain swim bait?
