Great year for hounds so far. Haven't blanked a hound hunt yet but still can't break the 4 - 5 pund mark. I would kill to find out where that 15pounder was caught ;)

Rodgers tips are spot on. When it comes to hounds for me, big big baits is my number one rule

If the crabs are on the Feed hard stripping your baits have rigs set up with Prime Bait, (Crab, etc.) keep refreshing and pitching baits out, and when the crabs suddenly die off the feed, send out the prime baits (better crab baits) ;)

Had nearly 6 smoothies among other species on low tide,4 around 3 to 3 and a half foot mark ,1at 4 ft and one which broke off in the breakers :evil: had to be over 6ft easy(would have been my PB for hounds),i even got my waders full of water as i ran into the water to try grab it was well gutted :mrgreen: it took the lead along with the hook and after my soaking i even tied two grip leads together to make grappling hooks to see if i could snag the line and lead he had attached to thinking he might be a little tired after battle(in my dreams) and still near by mad i know but adrenaline was pumping on seeing such a big one and i wanted it big time.
