    Just a quick report fom yesterday Got to the ledge by 4:30am with plenty of fisherman already fishing. Waited for first light for 2hrs and started casting at 6:30am. after casting various metals and hardbodies. And about 200casts later landed a small bonito and a leaping bonito soon after. Both fish took the lure right at the ledge. On an xrap 120mm long cast in pink. Left around 8:30am. So a return trip of 4hrs for 2hrs of fishing was worth it
  5. Frequent break offs near sinker

    I never use a running sinker on braid as it tends to get tangled and wrapped.

    Maybe insert a fibreglass or graphite ferrule and epoxy it together? there is no way the rod will ever feel the same
