jewfish and threadfin setup


Recommended Posts

I've done a lot of fishing with that class of set up, it's too light for cod and barra so I'd say it's definitely light for any reasonable size threadfin or jewellery fish.

Will it work in a pinch, yes, is it ideal, definitely not. I caught a 95cm cod on a 3kg rod with a 1000 size reel earlier in the year, it was a long fight and if there were any snags it would have been over quickly and not in my favour. If your going to keep them to eat then it would be fun but as mentioned not good for the fish.

I've got a PE3 rod and 2500 reel that would do the job, but I'd spool it with 35-40lb super thin braid and a 40-60lb soft fluorocarbon leader.

Is probably be inclined to run the 38lb shimano grapler braid that's only PE2 diameter and run 40lb black magic leader.
