  1. Mustad Hoodlum as Assist hook

    kAs-09 , I haven't tried using these hooks , yet ... I have them, sitting in my jig making box of tricks, At the moment, I am trying out the Owner Gorilla Live Bait Hooks as Assist Hooks.... So far so good.... I use Kevlar Cord( Mustard Colour ), not the 'Red Assist Cord'. I have 70lb, 100lb and 400lb cord, the heavier is hard to get through the eye once, trying to put through twice. I find it to be very strong, have had no bite through's ...again , yet ...... still use heatshrink over the eye section when finishing off ... Only been using these for Snapper so far .... Cheers Great_White
  2. Fishing and more fishing...

  3. Wollongong Blackfish PB and tragedy

    Should be able to take that to any "reasonable" tackle shop that has a resident rod builder, and get that fixed, it will end up 2 piece, but usable!! and a keeper .... Great_White
  4. Bonnies Save The Day Again

    Just love Bonito's !!! I Really Miss catching them now-a-days .. Can't even find them at the Fishmongers over here in S.A .... spewing Yes, tasty chicken of the seas right below the Albacore !!!!! Great write up ! Cheers Great_White
  5. Nothing High Speed ie over 6.x:1 Ideally anything from 4.x:1 to 5.0:1 Just like @brett01 said ... concentrate on a good drag set up !! Great_White
  6. 6kg braid

    Another fault is the reel may not be meant to take braid ..... Some 'older' model reels, do not take to braided lines at all ..... It all comes down to the way the reel, lays the braid onto the spool .... Also, try closing your bail over as soon as the lure hits the water .....or grabbing the braid with your fingers. this can help. Lots of reasons for 'wind-knots' out there , but line tension and lay are the two most likely culprits. Cheers Great_White
  7. Squid taking plastics but not squid jigs

    You can also try using a small stinger rig trailing the plastic, you will hook more squid this way , if they are chasing your plastics !! Just use a treble on a small length of leader, and attach a swivel to it, clip it above the jig head !!! Then if the Squids disappear, unclip it !!! Great_White
  8. Urgent help required

    Lemon Juice.... If not, wear nitrile gloves ... Great_White

  13. Plastic squids

    Plenty of YouTube on how to use these things .. They do come with a HUGE amount of hype around the design and useage .. In the videos, the swim action looks pretty cool ..... Great_White
