and while you're at it, tide, time, wind speed and direction, moon phase, barometer and if it's not too much of a bother, exact GPS coordinates

If you need any of that as you can get that off the BOM, GPS coordinates well it's a land based location.

Just interested to see what others are doing regarding rigs I know he said 4/0 gama they have a range of 4/0. Im running smelled 4/0 black magic DX hooks on fluorocarbon leader 50lb on a running sinker rig at the moment. Seems to be working.
What about you 4 litres? It's great to read what others are doing?

haven't really targeted snapper yet so i'm using running sinker rigs (from the kayak) or pulley rigs (from the beach) 5/0 or 8/0 Rigmaster Penotrate circles on 40, 50 or 60lb Rovex mono leader (whichever is on top of the leader pile when i'm making rigs)for gummies and if a snapper happens to be silly enough to hook itself while picking at the bait then cool i guess

You might find the snapper become more consistent as the season goes on for you with the circle hooks.

That's the idea. I don't rate them enough to target them, especially now while they're still finicky and hard to catch, and would much rather score a gummy

You forgot to ask if LX was wearing pink undies or nothing at all.
