  1. honestly don't remember. i'll keep that in mind next time. Cheers
  2. I was using a 4/0 or 5/0 Gamakatsu circle hook on a 20lb mono leader. my drag was so light that when the fish pulled, my spin reel span faster than the line (almost like a mini baitcaster birdnest). I went to buy some 3/0 gang hooks and 40lb mono leader so we'll see how that goes I'm curious as to what's the reasoning behind a slightly tighter drag and not giving it any slack?

  4. appreciate your detailed response. I'll try using heavier mono next time and see how it goes. Cheers
  5. Do you think a heavier mono leader will work or do I need to switch to a wire leader?
  6. Hi all, So the other day I was fishing off of Shorncliffe Pier using live herring on a running sinker rig (20lb leader). All of a sudden, my reel starts screaming (very light drag) and then it stopped. I reeled it in to find that my hook has been completely ripped off of my line. This also happened at Wellington Point on dead pilchard. WHAT KEEPS BITING ME OFF? edit: how do I avoid this issue in the future? thanks
