they're a type of lure, look a bit like feathers but not fuffy

I have a mustad sealite trace and on the back of the packet it states towards dusk as low light levels fall and silver ribbon with flourescent whipping.

hope this helps.

i think clear water helps also,you can tip each hook with abit of squid as an attractant,are these the "fladen" daylights?

all the best

I have never used daylights or indeed feathers of any kind.. What size weight would you recommend?

Oh dear.. *WARNING ....WARNING." lol. Mackerel traces eh?

Was throwing a 3oz weight and string of shrimp style lures out (30lb trace) and after about 10 casts the weight just cracked off...and they were'nt a cheapy trace. Mustad and first time they've been used since I bought them. Will be retying them next time regardless of what the packet says the body lb is.

Not sure if you can catch macky in the night? I've found them a bit sparse at dawn and then picking up during the day.


Salfordian. 10lb of leader every ounce. So if the body of the trace is 50lb you can use up to 5 oz. You can use more if you're gently lobbing it off some rocks/pier. I like using a bigger weight because the lures sink quicker...I think this helps cool (oops...don't forget your shock leader either)

must admit, i've had more luck with daylights than bait the past couple of weeks, catching mainly coalies plus a few whiting (all under size)

using them on a bass rod with a 5oz lead if i long cast, but a 3oz lead if i'm dropping it over the side it seems that letting it drop slowly is beneficial (baybe soething to do with them looking like ijured fish??)
