Yeah been checking your posts out, looks like a wicked trip mate for sure.
Yeah Im liking the idea of using full braid ay mate. Having no strech must get that hook set pretty quick on a strike and the idea of have less of a belly in the line due to smaller dia. cant be a bad thing Im thinking.

Yeah I suppose if you were in comps and going for records etc you would use test mono but just recreationally cant be too much wrong with it. Worked well for us on Sunday anyway thats for sure Thumbs Up

true mark, heard of a couple hook-ups in 30 and 50 m over the week, one on a kingie bait, but well just see what the waters doing on the day, might soak some baits for a change, been working on a down rigger set up, keen as to give it its first run, nice work on that fin up north, pic would of been stoked to get that one for the boat, must of taken out tuna category, you guys catch much else,

Solid day out of Raglan yesterday. Covered a lot of water inc. the Trench. Saw a free jumper around the 100m line, but otherwise a very lifeless looking sea! Still a great day out. Tend to agree, that probabaly better to be fishing 70m out....

Damn show off Gowest. My missus had a 80-90kg stripy on today for 20 seconds. It went nuts and a few simple mistakes by these amatures saw it swimming for another day. Had a very large tuna that I couldn't identify must have been 20kg plus chasing a lure mouth openalarge Albert?. I did the mistake of laying it back but when the weight came back on the lure got airborne and the tuna flagged it. Damn I should have just speed up the boat but my old man was driving. It would ave been swipping at the lure for at least 20 seconds. Dropped another unseen strike that took the lure as it dived and went to the horizon before dropping...note a theme here...
Did get a alby and nestled in for a bottom bounce that gave us snapper and blue cod.
Got back in the bar and lost my steering and could only use our weight hanging over the side to steer...damn seal bust and all it took was 30 mill lost of the hydrolic fluid and all was gone...sigh another job for the list
