It was up in Portland. Was at the caravan park after a day offshore was watching some locals get dusted time after time from these threshers that were chasing mullet in the shallows. Grabbed a wire trace and had a crack myself.
Great vid, did you try the 8/0 and have a take and not hook up? They do have small mouths but even an 8/0 isn't that big I would think.
yeah it was weird, missed 4 hookups, crimped on a 4/0. first hit.
