I've done both... They are about equal in success.
Jungle Cock Soft Plastics - a new threat to the species?
Heh! I've fished SRC since the early '60s I still don't have those rascals figured out!
Okay then, let's try:
When I fish with my brother-in-law (maybe 1-2 times per year, from his boat), I started bringing a light spinning rod and some castmaster lures. I replace the treble hook for a single barbless and seems to work pretty well for him. I'd say i still catch more fish on the fly (probably 2-1) but that may just be that we really only have 2 colors of lures for him and I can swap out flies to mach whatever is working etc... still, he seems to average larger fish then I do.
Might as well be a stick of dynamite.
Maybe spinner with fly dropper
Oh I know, I was just messing around. However, I gear fish so infrequently it feels weird when I do.
I hope such dirty behavior doesnt impact your status as a leading member of the KBG. This could be hugely controversial! FWIW as a fellow dirty gear fisherman I've got your back!
I like how this thread started about conserving SRC populations, now we are scheming the most effective gear tactics and presentations. Good work guys!
I've done this, kind of. I've done buzz bomb with a fly dropper. Or swim baits and fly dropper. Never a spinner or spoon.
You can get a couple casting bubbles then just use your flies behind it. That way you can just take your fly box and no need to buy lures.
Buck tailing is easy on the shoulders, and effective.
I actually am really into this idea for my bro and father in law who just don't seem that interested in learning yo cast well enough to be effective.
