Did you upgrade reel or still using the small one for gummies?

I got bitten off by something at Shoreham a few weeks ago which I suspect was a gilla. What sort of leader were you using?

Jeez, that was lucky. You must have hooked it right in the corner of the jaw then for it not to bite you off

well done, thats a cracker fish, 4000 sienna wouldnt have stood a chance, you must have burnt out the drag washers for sure.
whatever reel you have got now i hope its atleast a 5000 minimum if going to fight these sort of fish and upgrade the drag to carbon drag washers..
ideally a daiwa BG6500 would be ace for these fish and they come with carbon drag as standard..
