I need Mental to do it as If I do it it will delete everyones votes (as they are being given more options) so it needs to come from an administrator not a moderator :headbang:
Will email him now.

Sorry hadn't seen this thread, will fix it now...

Update: Fixed - would have been better sticking just to shapes KC instead of trying to cover every size AND shape...

Crazy Legs got my vote even though the majority of my fishing is done using jerk shads...

I've tried grub tails and crazy legs, but the flappy bits always get destroyed real quick. Shads seem to last longer - and catch fish just as well.
Electronics : its still magic, even when you know how its done.

Most of my success has been with crazylegs but i get p#ssed off with the amount of baits you get in a bottle . I do love them though , but fish with them less and less these days because of price .
Ive been loving the 4inch jigging grubs latley .
Crazeylegs get my vote though .

I love using the lizards, but you tend to get bits bitten off them pretty easily, but hey, I'm on Desert Island and they are "free"......Like KK I have been using the Jigging Grubs with a bit of success lately !

3 and 4 inch grubs are all I've used this year pretty much.
Have caught my 3 best fish on them ;)

Likewise, 3-4" gubs, minnows, swimming mullets are about all I've used. Nice getting heaps in a pack too ;)

I change through many shapes and colours and find what works well one day, won't even get looked at another. I usually cast a Jerk shad, Crazy legs or Squid Vicious into my drift and have either a sandworm or lizard dragging behind me on a wormhook. If I had to choose just one type and colour, it would be Orange Tiger Squid Vicious as these are the most consistant where I fish.
