    Do you know who made the blanks for Eric ?

    Chris

    CTS from NZ made Eric Grell rod blanks I think.

Normally a single hook 3/0 or 4/0 Octopus Circle or a Tru Turn 3/0 Double Gang if fishig full Pillies or Squid. Very Light sinker - normally 1-2 Split Shots if that. And I always have an unweight Pillie out the back on a 4500 bait runner with 20lb braid and 20lb leader.

    Offshore - Float lining I use a bait runner 6500 with 30lb braid and 30lb leader. I usually have a snell rig on this 4/0 or 5/0 or a 4/0 set of gangs if I get snipped off. Normally I will turn the baitrunner on, loosen the baitrunner drag to as little as possible and use the current and sinker to drift the bait down. Sometimes I will freespool the first half and then engage the baitrunner. I use Klik sinkers alot as I can easily change sinker size to match the curretn/drift.

    I also use a 5000 series reel with 30lb braid and 40 lb leader for all bottom fishing. The 500 reel is s Penn Slammer matched with a Pfleuger Trion 6-10kg rod (Best rod I have used I reckon). This can be used for bottom bashing or float lining but works well.
    Nice to hear another fan of the baitrunners
    The Pflueger's have always been good value for money - I have a President 6-10kg which is my knockabout / mates rod …… it's certainly the oldest rod I own that still gets used - must be close to 20 years old - The cork is starting to go but man it's a solid rod

    8-10 kg livefibre with a 760l penn live liner rigged with 25lbs low stretch mono ( i like white or pink ) with 3 ganged 7766's in 4/0 and a pilly with a 4 or 6 ball on the hooks , if i'm really fussy i'll use a cast-net lead on the lead hook instead. pretty much the same rig for mackerel.

    simple but deadly

    Re: Tell us about your snapper gear

    Live fibre 6-8kg and Shimano triton rods coupled with baitrunner reels for bait fishing. For plastics I have a venom x 15-40lb with a daiwa Catalina 4000 (which I actually think is too heavy) and a nitro viper with a Stradic 4000. I want to get a decent 3-6kg rod with a 3000 daiwa which I think would be perfect size for snapper plastics and soft vibes which I reckon are great for snaps.

    Good thread, hopefully more people post.

    Cheers

    Re: Tell us about your snapper gear

    I don't fish deep for my snapper but I just use a 4to10 lb Graphite USA and Diawa 2500R hypercustom with 15lb powerpro and 20lb leader I only fish lures and soft plastics and it will catch any size snapper all day long.

    Haven’t done it for a while but loved catching a good snapper using one of my Alvey reels.

    Great for those bucket mouths in deep water. I got rid of those clamps and replaced them with an Anderson plug, just wasn't happy having spark making equipment on board.

    Nice outfit ….. certainly love those Hyper Certates & should have bought one when I had the chance . I reckon they were the best of all the certates .
    Every now & then I drag out my light outfit which is a Samurai Reaction 6-12 & an ATC Valour SW5000 (same size as a 2500 Daiwa) loaded with 15lb powerpro ……… but I've been dusted a few times on good snapper - kings & cobes . So it generally only gets used if I want to have some fun or I've got the fish rising up a pillie trail .
