HOOK

SUG­GES­TIONS AND RIG TYPES

New Zealand Fishing World - - Snapper -

Gurnard

4/0 to 6/0 re­curves on a drop­per rig, or a stray­line rig with small strip baits

Snap­per

6/0 to 8/0 re­curves for drop­per rigs. Take care not to fill the gape of the hook! 6/0 to 11/0 sui­cide style hooks for straylining, match­ing the hook size to the likely size of the fish and to the size of the bait you’re us­ing. I’ve caught un­der­sized snap­per on 10/0 hooks be­fore. Sharp hooks are al­ways im­por­tant but even more so when us­ing big hooks and light gear.

Trevally

4/0 to 6/0 re­curves on drop­per rigs or stray­lines. Keep your shell­fish, squid or pilchard baits small.
