    Nice work.

    Hook size and bait?

      Gday Send-it,

      Fresh Pilchards and I use a single 6/0 Hook on three of my rods. Good quality though (makes a huge difference on a hook up)
      The fourth rod I use a 6/0 Circle hook usually with half a silver whiting or a chunk of squid. Keep the drag a little tighter on that rod.

      If the fish are playing with the bait then i'll go to a 4/0 or 3/0 and use a smaller bait, that usually works.
