    Which edge when spooling a reel?

    I've been reading that you spool a reel to about 1/8 inch (about 2-3mm?) From the edge of the spool. My question is, my spool has two sections. The area of the spool perpendicular to the rod where the majority of the line sits and then at the top of the spool there's a 'lip' where the spool angle changes to about 45 degrees to the rod. This area is about 3mm wide and ends at the very edge of the spool. My question is do you spool to 3mm of the very edge or to 3mm of where the perpendicular area joins the 45 degree area. For some reason I've always taken it to mean the later which is why in my photo you can see some red area on the spool. Is this correct or should I be spooling onto the black area?

    Long reef snapper suggestions

    I love my sea anchor but Ive never used at sea because its on a 13ft tinny & I just fish the bays Still does a pretty good job but Im using a 20ft rated model, I recon if I used what was rated for 13ft it would have minimal effect.

    Thanks mate, it's a ripper. Thanks for the link. Nice work on the Golden Eagle. It's amazing what is on offer out there, you just need to look around. In my case I'm thinking the UK market isn't doing so well and there are true bargains to be had.

    I wouldn't suggest running light braid on a baitcaster as that usually spells disaster , rather something like 8lb flurocarbon straight-through. Fluro is also a lot more forgiving with backlashes.

    Headed down there at 3:30am to try and get some squid, the guy at the fish shop said the day before the young lad who worked there got 42 in the morning anyhow I got none, my mate John got 3 in about 5 hours lol. An old man was there in his Akubra hat and full fish overalls with his 2 alveys set up fishing fresh nippers I believe, he pulled up a massive bream I mean huuuge and about a 2kg trevally I heard (he was fishing towards the police boats), at the time I was on the point flicking prawns as usual on my 1-4kg jewel - 3000 stradic. I pulled up and dropped decent bream and trevally on the rocks, but I did walk away with 3 nice bream 1 trevally and 2 solid leather jacket. I also caught a stingray which nearly broke my rod he fell off as I went to lift him to unhook him so I was happy with that. As usual towards ocean side of the wall, plenty of schools of baitfish and plenty of schools of kingfish feeding on them travelling the wall up and down. There was also snapper on the point but nothing bagable today. Trevally are good fighters that was high light of the day for me.
