I think everyone knows that mate. However, not everyone is a fan of putting in countless hours in cold conditions to catch one... I know im not, even though i did get reward for effort recently with some nice 4 & 5.6kg reds off the rocks.

People are just buzzing about the weather changing and the fishing turning on hot again, myself included.

Still seeing 5+kg frames down at the cleaning bays at the ramp and few guys I keep an eye on still drag them in all year just not as bigger numbers but at least this time of year you don’t have to complete with 4 million peanuts racing out and all anchoring up on top of each other which sh*ts me to tears

Always been meaning to get one but never really bothered. Maybe this is the snapper season that I eventually do get around to it?

Worth spending a couple hundred bucks or do the $70 Ebay ones do the job?

The Aldi one is pretty good, no idea when they'll have them next though
2015/16 Species comp total: 289cm
Brown Trout: 37cm
Flathead: 51cm; Squid: 36cm; Australian Salmon: 51cm; Snapper 46cm; Silver Trevally 23cm; KGW: 45cm
