Sneaked out to the outermost green bouy early this morning . What a blast ! Conditions were perfect. I hooked 3 large KY but only managed to boat one !
This prompted a gear overhaul afternoon , with particular attention to terminal tackle and I replaced pretty much all my hooks. Gave all the reels a tidy up, and siliconed zips etc . Gave the stereo a good work out ! Might do it again tomorrow , if the ABs win by a good margin !

Good to see you got out on the water on the weekend herman, I was in palmerston catching trout otherwise i would have been out with you, Congrats on the kahawai. :clap: Personally i replace all my leader and clean or replace the hooks after every trip, My number one reason is i like to have all the odds in my favour to boat a large snapper or kingfish. Those spinies teeth and skin aren't too good on the leader
