Why You Need The Pin Tail 20 For Beach & Rock Fishing
The Pin Tail 20g is one of the smallest 20g bibbed lures on the market, at just 70mm it’s a very common baitfish size. We’ve had plenty of sessions where we simply couldn’t get a strike on anything bigger. Normal lures this size are far too light to cast far and hold well around waves but this little lure can do both really well at 20g, it casts like a bullet on 15-30lb braid and sinks quickly to allow you to work the whole water column top to bottom.
The tight action and sink rate of the lure allow for slow, medium and fast paced retrieves which makes it incredibly versatile for so many species, and all have proven to work well. Prime targets include tailor, salmon, trevally, flathead and snapper.
How To Use It
One of our favourite actions with the Pin Tail 20g lure has been the slow retrieve from near the bottom, where we let it sink down a bit before starting a slow wind retrieve mixed with a few subtle jerks with the rod to make the lure dart erratically (which you’ll feel the vibration of). We also found that the smaller and slower jerks were much more effective than the standard big jerks and sweeps most fisherman do when using lures off the beach or rocks.
Our best success has come from rigging these lures with assist hooks like we’ve been doing with most of our lures lately, it’s increased our hook-up rate and decreased our losses once hooked. For these lures the Shinto Pro Micro Ultra-Light Offset Doubles Assist Hooks in size 5 are the ones we’ve been using, and we’ve been putting one set on the rear eyelet.
If you like spinning you’re going to LOVE this lure.
P.S. our deadliest colour so far has been GCH, the white one.
