STRAYLINING TIPS

New Zealand Fishing World - - Snapper -

Use as lit­tle weight as you can to get into the strike zone Stay in touch with your bait at all times Keep the hook points well clear of the bait. For shal­low wa­ter wash fish­ing (cast­ing into the surg­ing wa­ter around rocky head­lands) you can’t beat straylining. Like­wise, an un­weighted bait cast out into a well-es­tab­lished berley trail can be one of the most ex­cit­ing ways to catch snap­per. Straylining is a very ef­fec­tive method for fish­ing big baits for big fish and the bait feeder type func­tion on some reels is a per­fect match for this style of fish­ing. Straylining suits both an­chored or drift­ing boats and is prob­a­bly the best way to fish from rocks.
