    Heavy Surf Rod

    As Dylbaa said most people use the grapnel sinkers down there. 6 oz is the general size they use. The allegiance will cast 6oz plus ya bait.

    Heavy Surf Rod

    The Penn Prevail and Penn allegence in the 12ft 12-20kg models are a great surf rod for under $200. I have the allegence myself and have no issues with it. Have up to 200g cast weight aswell. They were the biggest selling surf rod in the tackle shop I was working at. Wilson mt8144 would be a nice stick aswell. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Nice weather !

    Myself and @Kuerschie went down south this morning chasing Carp on fly and bream. I had a few good looks on bream on fly but not committing and there were carp around but not really interested. Kuerschie had 3 good looks at carp but nothing committed either. Then off tomorrow morning to cook the bbq with other fellow Strike Hookers for the Onkastompa!

    Upgrading hooks and rings

    It shouldn't affect it tooo much. Id just buy 1 pack and give it a try if it doesn't work out you've only outlaid 10 buxs and can use them for other lures. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Upgrading hooks and rings

    Hmmm thats weird. They were our biggest selling trebles at my old work and have never seen anything like that before. Bkk trebles are pretty good to for the price. Super sharp and seem well made and constructed. I believe the Nomad guys use them in Qld for all there big species with no dramas.

    A good mono to mono knot please.

    If using mono line no real need for a leader. I use 3lb straight through fluorocarbon and love it for flicking plastics and hardbodies. If you feel like you need a leader i use the albright knot. Its simple to tie and nice and strong. I prefer this knot as its easy to tie with my chunky fingers...

    Rapala R type reel

    At my time working in the tackle shop i sold countless Daiwa BGs for guys wanting them for a range of species and had all positive feedback from them customers. Only issue i saw was the drag clicker broke but that was replaced. Have seen plenty of Snapper Tuna Kingfish even Sharks caught on them. Even Alan Hawk gives them a great reel! Only downside for me was i love power ball handle knobs. The Daiwa BGs handle knob is riveted. There are ways to get around it but other than that they are a great reel!

    Rapala R type reel

    Value for Money you can't beat the Daiwa BG. Being non mag sealed you can service yourself. And being Daiwas Flagship reel parts will be readily available for the next 6 years which is piece of mind. Parts are fairly cheap aswell. They also come with carbon drag washers.

    Where to live

    If I had a choice it would Ardrossan, Moont, Wallaroo, Pt hughes in no particular order. They all have what you need in life and the lifestyle is pretty laid back.
