Cheers

If you keep persisting, you might get onto them :)

Thanks mate!! Will give it another go tomorrow :)

No worries. Good luck tomorrow and let us know how you go :thumbsup:

Went down there for a bit this morning, just got back! Using 8lb braid and a 15lb mono leader I managed to catch my bag!
I managed 3 30cm ish pinkies and 5 fish over 40! all but one of the over forties were thrown back to swim another day.
I was using zman grubz 2.5 in motor oil on a 1/6th Oz jig head

Well done mate. But just remember for future reference. Your only allowed to keep 3 fish over 40cm in a bag. All other fish have to be under 40cm and above 28cm.
