Anyone like white lures?

I remember reading an article by a Fly fisherman and he said all you need for saltwater fishing are white clousers in various sizes.

So I've recently bought 280 white plastics and been testing the theory - mainly chasing pinkies and Reddies and its doesnt seem to hurt catch rates - but I dont spose they arent the ultimate in choosy predators

Yeah even when they're in a frenzy, I've seen salmon show a preference - 10 anglers on a pier, all casting soft plastics into a washing machine - white lures were the winners that day aswell

Found white SP are one lure you can catch a mullet on with a degree of consistency.

Had some success on the Squidgy Drop bear for flathead.

What sort of mullet are you chasing and what lure do you use?

I mucked around with 6 inch sandworms with stingers in the tail for little yellow eye mullet - a brisk constant jittery retrieve through a school often got attention. But bait was more effective and I was collecting livies so constantly putting the stinger back in the tail gets old quick

Poddy Mullet are the ones we have targeted mainly in Lake Tyers. Definately not easy to catch but when your 15 year old son decides he is going to try and catch one you let him have some fun. He ws using a slim 3.5" paddle tail.

I fish a fair bit of clear water close to dusk, so my recent interest in White plastics came from an above average pinky session on white single tailed grubs. I was using brown and pink lures but I wanted something that stood out a bit more in clear water as the sun set.

There can be alot of water between schools when land based, so I wanted to make sure my lure wasnt sneaking past the fish.

Thanks for that - Yeah I've found the little fellas to be aggressive and enthusiastic lure hitters at times - its just their mouths are too small to grab the hooks
