Eden report easter weekend 2017

Postby Sinsemilla » Thu Apr 20, 2017 1:00 pm

Hi fellas, Got a report from the weekend just past. Got to Eden on Friday and fished Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
We got perfect weather for the 4 nights we were there so we fished all 4 days.

Each morning headed out and filled the live bait tank with slimies before heading to Mowarry point. The slimies were the key to our success because the kings weren't taking jigs and didn't really take any other bait..

We caught kings everyday except for Tuesday.. Tuesday the bite really shut off and we didn't get anything but bonito trolling around Green cape.

All up 27 kings to 12kgs in 3 days. Got smoked by heaps of fish as well. Couldn't ask for a better trip!

Cheers, Anth

I use a Shimano Talica 8 with 45lb daiwa boat braid, 80lb black magic leader to a gama 8/0 live bait hook on a Nitro Gulfstream rod.

My brother was using his Daiwa Saltist AHI rod and Avet MXJ 5.8 reel, 55lb Daiwa boat braid same everything else.

We use the spin rods for jigging. Daiwa saltist rods and Saltist 4500 reels with 45lb braid, 80lb leader.

Overheads are a lot better for live baiting and actually fighting the fish.

No problems. They are really easy to use. Spend a day using one and you'll get it. When working lures a spin rod is better but for free spooling a live bait and fighting a good size fish an overhead is a lot better in my opinion.
