 fishing with braid helps a bit i find, as well as obviously keeping as much of your line out of the water to reduce drag. the bigger the rod the less drag. as mentioned grapnel sinkers also help, although some days nothing matters!

cheers fellas.

il check out those moulds! I do all my fishing in the lower south west. Pretty heavy surf conditions which is good for deep gutters and wash outs. But as u know with gutters and swell comes sideways current. Thought someone might have come up with a technique to keep te baits out straighter for longer.?? I use 6 ounce sinkers, and even sumtimes theyre not enough.
