Nice warm day like today but without the sun! They work well over lilly pads and weeds if you rig then with a weed guard!

They were about the only thing we didn't try today down at Stanley ferry!

I have got to say that onec you have one you will become hooked, the secret to surface lure fishing is to cast out the lure and let all the rings from the splash settle before you retreive the lure, then make it a stop and start retreive and once you feel the weight of the fish and only when you feel the weight of the fish should you strike.
Pike are really crap at hitting lures on the surface so dont worry if you dont get a hook up from a take, they probably missed the lure altogether geek I find the best times for surface fishing is after the sun goes down on a sunny day or first thing in the morning as the some comes up Twisted Evil
