Pat........if you can't find any in the tackles shops, there's a place just as you go into New Norfolk (from Hobart direction) on the Lyell Hwy. First house on the right with a boat and assorted rubbish out the front and side :lol: They normally have boxes full of them, and used to be a compulsory stop for me on the way up the lakes. Prices are what you'd expect to pay in shops though :(

Cheers

They might make a few holes in the plastic by the time you get to the lakes...... :lol:

They are usually stored in a grub tin with dividers made from metal....They jaws are capable of chewing through most materials....

My advice is......by some lures it's more fun and more rewarding...

I should know....grub fishing forced me to try something else :roll: :roll:

pat, grubs will definitely eat through plastic.........for a short term measure, wrap them in toilet paper so whichever direction they decide to feed they hopefully won't get to the plastic before you have to use them. If they get to the plastic, they'll cark it, they go black and smelly pretty quickly. :idea:

When stored in my stainless grub box, I put either oats or wheet-bix in there for them :idea:

I'd buy a pack of special grub hooks for a couple of $ and leave in your tacklebox, they'll never go astray.

Always good sitting back having a couple of brewski's while soaking a bait 8) 8) 8)

Cheers

Hey Pat

I always run mine with a running sinker....... grub hook, 750mm leader, swivel, then sinker...... then leave the bail arm open on the reel so that when a trout picks it up it can run freely without feeling weight of the sinker, and won't spit the grub out. 3rd run and I'd flip the bail arm open and give it to them. Grab a set of bells to put on the end of the rod to signal a bite (about $2)

Haven't had much success under the float, but in tooms have pulled a few with mudeyes under it ;)

Cheers
