    Fluoro straight through - Bream

    Well, I am in two minds about it so I best give it a go and find out through practical experience. It might improve hookups from those easily spooked bream and whiting on the Maianbar sandflats.

    ...and here's me hooked up on a rat King in Bantry Bay... (I have pretty much worn this T-shirt nonstop for about 12 months so I am about due for a new one)

    Where are the pelagics?

    On my last two trips out about a month apart I didn't see any boils off North Head. Last season and quite a few before that they were the size of football fields I did spin up a few small bonnies about 1 k offshore when I saw birds working a school but I struck out in and around the washes. Last week Long reef was dead but Sydney harbour has more bait in it than I have seen for years. Not sure what that all means but it is certainly very different to last year.

    Fish Shop Fish - Cooking Methods

    I walk past the fish shop in Parramatta Westfield most days and I see some of the same fish there so many days in a row that we are on a first name basis!

    Fluoro straight through - Bream

    I read something on this once Frank that supports when you are saying... Flouro is more abrasion resistant than " some monofilament lines" Flouro is less visible but there are comparative (in) visible colours in mono line. I do use Flouro but it is, of course, a bit of a dog to tie in heavier gauges so I tend to use crimps in 40lb and over. Jim

    Braid - What are your strategies for spooling your reels?

    Yes , I use for jigging but not for beach fishing as I find it too easy to tangle and knot as it washes around in the surf. I also don't use it when using a for centrepin reel for blackfish fishing. And I don't like it on a handline that I might use for catching live bait. Somehow I feel that it can get a bit hard to manage when there is some reason not to have continuous tension on the line. Could just be a personal thing though. Cheers Jim

    I have something similar but your one is much better... might have to invest in that one. Thanks for the info.

    Bottom Bouncing Strategies

    Thank for the well-considered and detailed post. I note that you certainly come up with the goods in the bottom bashing department and I know I m not the only Raider you have shared excellent resources within this forum. Cheers and thanks again. Jim

    Thanks Dave... Yes, I agree that flathead for flathead is a great bait. Cheers Jim
