I’m far more prepared this time though. 80lb braid main/70lb leader/mustard circle hook+rated swivel and chicken chunks! Never caught Gummy before so it’ll be interesting if and when I do. Cheers.


What sort rod was it?


$50 “no name” ... so I guess I won’t be doing that again. I would have had better service at K-Mart. I took it back to where I bought it from and the guy said he’d never carried that brand before and tried to make out I was outright lying. I showed him a photo I took of the receipt... he shut up pretty quick. He said he needed to give it back to his supplier for “investigation”. That was 6 weeks ago and still haven’t seen my $50. :down:

Which store did you get it from?


Wonthaggi, “needed” a quick replacement rod.

How you rigging at the moment?


12ft surf rod, 30lb braid, 30mono with running sinker and 50cm trace (110lb coated ss) No8 circle hook. Should I drop down hook size? Should I change it all!?

p1ss off the SS trace and use about 80cm to 1m of 60lb mono(I use black magic supple). You can continue with the 8/0, I used to use them with good results, though I do change down to a 6/0 landbased in Western Port now and keep the 8/0 for true surf beaches like the 90 Mile or Gunnamatta/Portsea.

Grantville pier last night, high tide was like a millpond. Full moon, fresh yabbies... not one bite. WTF! I’ll reload Sunday but seriously?!

Just how it goes mate...
Hopefully better luck next time. I know the feeling when you don’t even get a bite...

Yep, pump Bass yabbies and that’s about it.
