Headed out to trial the new 20 lb leaders at Cooroboree today - bit windy on the salt water so a quick change of plans and into the fresh I went. Plenty of sign of fish around with tarpon busting up everywhere.
Fished with 20 lb mono leaders today and nothing else. Following some inside info from Colin from Reidys lures the techniques was simple - cast lures into the stems of the lillies and hang on - first to hit the deck was a nice fat 60 odd cm barra followed by plenty of saratoga - heaps of weed but thats the nature of the beast - at times I had to drag the fish out and got the salad as well as the fish but the 20 lb leaders worked a treat. I am super confident that they will work a treat on flathead. I fished all day with 3 inch Reidys rubbers and at times it was a fish a cast action. Tally for the day was 2 barra ( a third better fish bought to the side of the boat but chucked the single hook - dont think he knew he was hooked!!) and about a dozen or so saratoga - great day out.
Tomorrows challenge is to snag fish on an 8 lb bream leader.
