I first came across Savage Gear lures and tackle a couple of years back. I was particularly interested in the soft rubber type lures and chose to try out the Savage Gear Sandeels. These come in a number of different sizes, colours, tail types and are designed, as the name suggests, to mimic sandeels. I was keen to give these a try so I purchased a few, I think the initial purchase consisted of just the 45g white and silver models.
The first time out using these was at Redcar, UK. My local hunting grounds. I already had a kayak fishing expedition arranged for that day anyway so along with my usual tackle I had the Savage Gear Sandeels. I set off at first light and headed out to about a mile off Redcar, just level with the rear of the wind farm.
I decided to go straight for the Savage Gear Sandeels and first drop I was into a fish. It must have weighed about 5lb. Then second drop and into another fish of similar size.
