    Stockton Saturday

    what sort of gear were you using? ive fished there for jews and you have no choice but go heavy in my opinion theres to much current and to much structure for them to bust you off in. i fish an 18000 saragossa 50lb braid/80-100lb leader on a wilson 5120 and a 10000 saragossa with 40lb braid/60-80lb leader on a wilson 9144 and have still been smoked up there.
  2. Alright marlin session is slowly approaching and I'm new to the whole game fishing scene (haven't managed to catch anything yet) and this will be my first session targeting them and I want to make some wind on leaders just wondering what size dacron should I use for what size leader? And what size leader should I be running for Sydney marlin? Any help will be much appreciated Cheers Ollie.

    Battle scars

    Mount it. I've been meaning to start mounting some old lure like that but always end up loosing them just before retirememt If I crack my first big tuna this year that lure will be retired and mounted that day.

    50m first run and 50m plus second run

    I pick my leader from my main line strength and up. Also do some research most braids break well above the stated breaking strain. 50 lb can be closer to 70lb. Sure you might loose some braid here and there but 10lb braid to 12lb leader will still snap at the knot if not at the hook.

    50m first run and 50m plus second run

    A jewy will do that too you on light tackle easy. After the first run did it stop and feel like a snag? If so ray, if it just stopped running and had some head shakes possibly a jew. Kings will do it but they don't usually stop until they get you in the reef. I had a similar experience a few weeks ago getting spooled on 20 lb with about 200m. It's didn't even slow down and even sped up towards the end I call that one for a big ray. Or lost barrel blue fin tuna in north harbour lol.

    Heading out again this Tuesday

    I got no chance of getting out but got some info from a marine biologist mate saying between browns and broken bay wide around the bait station is the go. Just wish I could get out and get into them my self. Good luck.

    Had all my gear stolen

    Mate sorry to hear about that. The scum should be hung out to dry. It's a good point to mark alk your gear and photograph it. Happened to a mate a while back and it turned up in cash traders but the cops could do anything cos he could prove it was his. I would be devastated if it happened to me. I hope the insurance company comes through for you.

    Shimano v Okuma

    I fish hard and often. Up to 4 times a week for squid to tuna and if owned several different brands and for me if I have to replace a reel or send it back for warranty that means time I don't have that reel. Also if your reel is seizing up okuma will probably claim mistreatment. These days I own about 20 shimano reels and apart from the odd roller bearing replacement they all work great. 1 of my 10,000 Saragossa has gone through 4 jigging seasons and 4 summers fished hard for jews and kings from rocks beach and from boats and never missed a beat even caused me to buy another one for fishing multiple rods.
