Crack o' dawn, water like glass, 6 fish, 33,33,33,41,47,48. centimetres.

Since changing to the non recurve hooks, I haven't had a big one drop a hook yet.

All caught just after dawn on the last legs of the outgoing tide, except for the 48 cm one, who took a bait right in the middle of slack water and fought like a lamb...

Yes, I used the one on the left (below) for a while, but lost a couple of big fish when the hook either pulled or was spat out. Now I'm using the one on the right and the larger fish stay hooked, interestingly in the corner of the mouth despite not being a recurve :)
