I was thinking of giving the above a go....but...before i go and spend on a fortune on proper jobs black beauties......has anyone any success on black baits in winter ?

Maybe...im giving them a bit too much credit...but thinking that 99.9% of anglers stick out a bright pop up.that going against the norm may produce a winter whacker...
The waters i fish i wil probably blank all winter...but anything that may go in my favour of the bobbin rising to the rod one night is very well received...and gratefull !! Lol
