SUGGESTIONS AND RIG TYPES
4/0 to 6/0 recurves on a dropper rig, or a strayline rig with small strip baits
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.
4/0 to 6/0 recurves on dropper rigs or straylines. Keep your shellfish, squid or pilchard baits small.
