A small section of white / pink Isome darting through the water column looks a lot like a fleeing shrimp or fry. Smelt go crazy for this technique!
I've somehow beautifully avoided Weevers until now. But very pleased to tick off the Lesser Weever on this year's species list. Numero 20 in fact. Lure was an XL Marukyu Isome fished on a 10g jighead on the drift.
Watch out youngsters (and not so youngsters) - these are poisonous! Not worthy of abuse, but watch yourselves and go careful.
