  1. Hi guys, Heading to coffs in a few weeks with some mates and just wondering if anyone has some gps marks so we can have a crack at jigging some horse kings. If anyone would be as kind to share a mark that would be greatly appreciated. Cheers 🤙🏼
  2. I didn’t believe all this until I actually tried it. On a recent trip up north off old bar, I had my mum Fishing my 3-6kg, 20lb line 20lb leader, 3/8 5/0 jig head and 7” jerkshad, snapper fishing. I had my girlfriend Fishing a 2-4kg Rod, 10lb line 10lb leader, same jig head and plastic. Now mum caught 1 snapper about 48cm, my girlfriend however on the lighter outfit got 4 fish between 45-55cm and got absolutely tailed by a fish I called for 80+. My theory behind this isn’t that fish don’t ‘see’ leader as easily, but that it give the lure a more natural presentation in the water, less drag through the water so falls more natural. If we start getting dusted by bigger fish I’ll up the leader a few pound so we can put some hurt on to get them off the bottom. But 10lb braid (siglon) is my choice because it’s super thin, and fc rock is my Fluro of choice. Go as light as you need to get the fish to start feeding then you can up the anti. Nothing like having that ‘oh f*#k’ moment when you’re getting schooled. Keep em tight ?

    Hey Mate I went out last Sunday, weather turned shit on us, trolled around the fad and didn’t get a hook up. There has been a few beakies around at the moment, not too much deeper than 70fathoms. They should start pushing down a bit more now. The bite off sydney has picked up so should see them around now
  6. Awesome job mate well done
  7. Had an rdo from work today and was meant to help a mate out with his work, that got cancelled late last night so a quick weather check and a last minute call to fish south of Sydney today was made. We hit the water about 5.45, munched around for a good 45mins trying to find some new bait grounds etc so with no success we decided on a lure only Fishing day and off we went. Started to get near the spot we were aiming for and marked a heeeeeeap of bait on the sounder, so pulled the boat out of gear, I grabbed the bait jig and sent it down while my mate grabbed his Fishing jig, mistakenly. I got 3 slimies, and he goes off and nails a nice 52cm snapper. Perfect start to the day. Next drop another snapper, 48cm model. So naturally I grabbed my snapper gear and dropped down, hit the bottom and boom, rod buckles. I’m on, good fish. Pulling drag, running me around the boat. A 15 minute battle ensues, starting to see color the fish buries it’s head and heads back down just out of sight. Fiiiinally I got the beauty boatside, perfect net job by my mate and boated a fat 72cm knobby headed snapper. A new pb for me by 22cm. Not a bad effort for a Tuesday. Tight lines
  8. Nice work mate. Sucks about the rod
  9. Nice mate. Always producing the goods
