MONSTER EP

Postby coattail rider » Mon Feb 05, 2018 11:56 am

Hit the shoalhaven Sunday in search of Bream and eps, trying some new lures and techniques
Ended up gettin g 2 bream just over 30, a double hookup of small eps on a dropshot rig, 4 EPS between 40 and 43cm...and one monster EP that went just over 50cm.

i dont expect to ever catch one that big again.
great fight on 2kg line and leader

I caught a cobia which could eat the rest except for the mackerel which could also probably eat a lot of the things

started running a plastic about 30 cm above a dropshot weight, but ended up switching to an unweighted platic about 30cm above a zman grub with a 1/16th jig head
used a palomar knot to tie on the other lure
