Sydney - Friday arvo solo Longreef snapper.

Recommended Posts

My new Snapper combo arrived today. A Shimano Nano Px 5 - 10kg matched with a stradic Ci4+ 4000 sized reel. The weather looked great so i went on a Solo session to Longreef to see if i could find some Snaps.

Well i wasn't disappointed! Plenty of nice reads on the sounder and managed some nice fish on plastics...

Funnily, it was actually the first time i have taken my Poly up to Longreef as i usuallly fish other areas, It was strange being the only boat out there in perfect conditions. Happy Days...

Slightly jealous... Waiting for the water temps to get down to around 18 degrees here down south to start getting the big girls again. Jeebus knows I love a good feed of snapper. Perhaps my favorite eating fish, just ahead of kingy. MMMmmmmmmmm getting a little drooly just thinking about it. Hurry up cooler water.

Thanks mate, caught them on every colour I sent out, you can see in the pics. They didn't seem picky as to colour selection.

rosebay, you should be fine depending on your fuel tank size. be careful with your safety routines and be confident in your boats capabilities.
