I don't mind a bit of swell shark soup. Lol. Nah there's only a couple of Vic sharks I'd put on a plate and they've all been mentioned.

Not impossible but unlikely to get onto a toothy whilst fishing on the bottom.

For the last few years or we have been using 30lb braid backing with 30-40lb tough mono or fluro leader for gummies but I would have easily caught in excess of 100 gummies using 20lb mono. Landed the odd toothy in that time with mono as well.


OK, 20lb leader and no toothies on the bottom....enough said

20lb is fine for gummy if they don't wrap them selves up.
Once that do the chances of landing on 20lb leader drops heaps as their skin just wears it through.

How come they do this? the other day I caught a gummy shark land based, and he was all wraped up.
Was a pain in the ass cutting it and untangling it.

I haven't caught a gummy on prawns but snapper will often take a prawn when they will not touch anything else.
