I often catch big leatherjackets down the bottom end of westernport and you need a long shank hook.
Ive caught leather jackets up to 55cm in length.
They would just chomp over circles.
I tried light wire trace but it gets snagged all the time in the thick kelp.
Also tried snap swivels and plastic/rubber beading and tubing but this all gets caught in weed. The biggest longshank you can find works well for me and also hooks whiting... i cant remember the hook size number as ive taken the hooks out of the pack and put in my tackle box tray for easy access.
