    Worth fighting the lettuce for these snapper

    3 - 4 hours fighting the lettuce last night but a nice result

    5lb & 8lb worth making the effort

    Well done Chris.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Got braid on one of my reels now so might have to go to Bowentown to see if that will make any difference with the lettuce around there I.E slicing through it.

    Might do mate but at the end of the day it is still going to collect on your tackle, braid has zero stretch so may have more luck yanking the weed off.
    Let us know how it works out.
