  1. Could even be a stabilizer for when at rest .... I'd leave it on !!! GW
  2. Similar pics from Lowrance , what I originally thought was a huge bait school ... Ended up being a swarm of tiny Leather Jackets Great_white
  3. You should try the flats in and around "Pig Island" ... roughly opposite Terrara ? Should be able to find some nice areas to fish there .... Great_White
  4. Go and check it out ... these Magnificent Creatures are TRULY Incredible up close ...... Great_White
  5. Here is some footage from a trip back in 2013 to Neptune Island off of Pt. Lincoln Sth Australia, home of some Big Great Whites. https://youtu.be/O6rmupH0WaI There are a couple more, but I'm only posting this one ... Great_White
  6. Fantastic Effort on the light gear "The Rev" .... Bet that Kingy tasted even better .... Cheers Great_White
  7. If the Kings are not at Pt. Perp .... head towards Currarong, to a place called "Devils George" .... Troll or live bait about 50 -90 metres away from the platform !!!! Big Kingies, used to live there .... Oh, and Hang On !!! Great_White
  8. Great Footage ..... Really liked how the recording captured how nearly all the "Cuttlefish" did 'Head Shot Attacks' ... Thanks Great_White
  9. More than likely a damn "Bull Shark" Close relative to the GW's, but there has been Bull Shark attacks in Sydney Harbour before ... Anyone remember the Navy Clearance Diver that got attacked and lost limbs ...... We get a LOT of GW's down here in S.A .... and if it was that big, I doubt very much, that the lady would be talking to reporters !!!! Just MY observations from 'interstate' !! Here is one a bit smaller than described, that hung around the boat in less than 4 metres of water.... Great_White
  10. kAs-09 , I haven't tried using these hooks , yet ... I have them, sitting in my jig making box of tricks, At the moment, I am trying out the Owner Gorilla Live Bait Hooks as Assist Hooks.... So far so good.... I use Kevlar Cord( Mustard Colour ), not the 'Red Assist Cord'. I have 70lb, 100lb and 400lb cord, the heavier is hard to get through the eye once, trying to put through twice. I find it to be very strong, have had no bite through's ...again , yet ...... still use heatshrink over the eye section when finishing off ... Only been using these for Snapper so far .... Cheers Great_White
  11. Ricardo , some Excellent Fish there !!! Loved the Video ... Great_White
  12. Should be able to take that to any "reasonable" tackle shop that has a resident rod builder, and get that fixed, it will end up 2 piece, but usable!! and a keeper .... Great_White
  13. Just love Bonito's !!! I Really Miss catching them now-a-days .. Can't even find them at the Fishmongers over here in S.A .... spewing Yes, tasty chicken of the seas right below the Albacore !!!!! Great write up ! Cheers Great_White
  14. Nothing High Speed ie over 6.x:1 Ideally anything from 4.x:1 to 5.0:1 Just like @brett01 said ... concentrate on a good drag set up !! Great_White
  15. Another fault is the reel may not be meant to take braid ..... Some 'older' model reels, do not take to braided lines at all ..... It all comes down to the way the reel, lays the braid onto the spool .... Also, try closing your bail over as soon as the lure hits the water .....or grabbing the braid with your fingers. this can help. Lots of reasons for 'wind-knots' out there , but line tension and lay are the two most likely culprits. Cheers Great_White
