    Re: leatherjackets 2011

    Yes mate I said to the young bloke the other day I'd rather tow the boat to Evans for a fish than think about the Ballina bar. The week of the classic the evans bar had barely a ripple on it all wek while the ballina bar threw up a real tantrum

    Bondy no worries mate, do you want some leader sleeves as well $5 for 25 size 4?

    the big gun 1/0 hooks fit the wire

    I may poke out a little wider in the morning for a look to see how many are there

    I'm still waiting for my spanner crabs Craig!!!!! You stooged me last week! Go and stretch the new live fibre on some toothy terrors. You other guys you can buy pre made deep sea wire rigs for a couple of bucks. They are a throw away item at that price. Just add hooks and sinker and wind em in

    halfmanhalffish,

    Yeah, if its made in yellow city then it wont last, you need heavier grade steel as a minimum for these critters unless they have diamond coated teeth.

    I find it sort of amusing that a Leatherjacket meet and greet/trip is being arranged, I wonder if in (say) 20-30 years time someone will be looking forward to the "Noosa Grinner" annual M&G? and have a few beers and lament the passing of the once common Snapper and Leatherjacket.

    what a top day on the water

    just finished cleaning up and ready to go again in the morning

    put 76 large slimies in the freezer (300 to 350mm long) and 8 nice pike for Agnes Water

    a 3.7kg pearly, 6 trag, a huge MIL fish, 5 snapper, a 1.6kg flathead, got spooled, the day was as sweet as

    went out wide and had a look for the jackets but couldn't find any where they were supposed to be last week before the blow

    only used 14ltrs of fuel for the day

    cheers Murf

    Let me know how your spotting went. Hopefully leathers will be around in plagues soon.

    Murf, have you got the items that I ordered from you?

    Cheers, Bondy
