    Braid - What are your strategies for spooling your reels?

    I used to religiously put on a few layers of mono backing then fill the rest of the spool with braid. But everytime I respool my reels 90% of the braid looks untouched and brand new. I think in the future I might start putting maybe a 1/4 of the spool as mono backing and save on the braid. I've never before even come close to being spooled so most of my braid never sees the light of day. Is this advisable?? What I do do is when I lose braid and the lip of the spool becomes prominent, I'll add more backing. I just drill a hole in lid of 2 litre drink bottle, attach it to the drill and unspool that way.

    Braid - What are your strategies for spooling your reels?

    how about back to front? Would that be the same as using a braid backing and mono mainline?

    No school prawns for sale in the fish shops

    The DPI has recommended not using raw prawns for bait if they were meant for human consumption. https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/pests-diseases/animal-health/aquaculture/white-spot-disease/important-information-for-recreation-fishers-use-of-prawns-as-bait

    After-work Rose Bay session

    Nice report and congratulations on the great catch. Were you tempted to keep them? They'd make a great feed. Are you using braid? You mention wind knots but then said you were using 10lb mono with no leader.

    Shovel nose sharks

    Looks like it's OK. in the first PDF second page it takes about commercial catches and they're taken in significant numbers be rec fishos. But you're probably right I would check with DPI

    Great report. Good on you for not following the crowd and doing your own thing If you count channel makers as hookups, then you'd also have to count trees, oysters and the like. That means I am now classed as a master fisher. richard
