Strike Pro Power Dots (Lough Derg)
This week was a tough week on Lough Derg, Ireland with strong winds (60km/hr), heavy rain and fast drifts. As we cast our first few lines we realized quite quickly that the fish were inactive and resting amongst the weeds near the bottom of the lake. We tried a few baits but none passed close enough especially with the fast drift.
To get somewhere close we needed some more weight on our baits so we turned to Strike Pro Power Dots (2g-3g) to bring the buster jerk down to our target depth. This approach helped us catch some good fish (4-6m deep). It was such a simple and effective solution to our problem.
