    this was braid and not mono line, but 6lb is 6lb right?

    The fly rod, however, is another story.

    By law, you are required to turn on your headlights if it's raining in Sweden.

    How the hell am I supposed to know if it's raining in Sweden?

    Fantastic day out with Dad and my kids today, was a bit of swell early that flattened off to almost nothing in the afternoon.
    Started out in "big snapper" spot and soon bugged out shallower away from the spikey dogs....it is bad enough getting them off my own line without two kids pulling them in as soon as the bait is in the water too!
    Burlyed up on the edge of a reef for hopefully a snapper, I landed two nice pannies but gear got punished by the snakes.
    My girl landed a whopper on her little kidstix lipstic pink rod.....I had loaded some 30p braid on it last night in anticipation of some beginners luck.

    We drew in some cod tho all too small,some big Kahawai,a couple of terikey and 10 or so gurnard when fishing went a bit quieter so we popped off to get some oysters.....not one scollop was caught for the record.

    A taste of them secured and into the bay to target carrots and hopefully a few pannies, the kids were into them flat out and Dad and myself were relegated to hook baiters and fish un hookers.

    Managed to get out of kapiti on a charter yesterday for the father inlaws 60th.
    Was suppose to chase kingis but the sea was to rough.
    Ended up with some hot bite times on the snaps , gurnard and trevs.

    I wasn't passing judgement just felt it high in my opinion. The brain is pretty small and is at about a 15 - 30 degree angle back and above the eye.

    This is the best pic I could find online. I believe the best way to know you have hit to brain is when the tail curls around to try touch the fish's side. All my opinion of course and I do my best to kill them quickly. You will never catch me taking photos of fish I intend to release with my hands up in their gills and shit
