An 8/0 mustad demon circle, with mamoi diamond 50lb leader, combined with 30lb Jerry brown braid. Bait was a pilchard head free spooled away from the boat. Luckily we didn’t hook any big ones, as there were many boats hooking into 100kg+ fish (some on 10kg outfits).
Lots of big sharks about closer to shore. Further up the coast, a few mates had their boats attacked by angry makos (angry because they were hooked).
