Went to Mandorah on the weekend with some mates, got jack all. Busted off about 11 times total (everyone) and i was on the receiving end of 2 of them, as well as being snipped on live stripy by a big mack or shark. Unclear what kept busting us off, we used squid and mullet chunks. Any ideas as to what it might have been, or any advice for heavy gear for mandorah or tips on landing fish would be appreciated. Probably one of the more fustrating trips i have been on :banghead:

Yeah, now looking for an overhead or big spin reel that can handle the things there.

400lb cord lines or even telstra rope with hectic stainless wire traces regularly gets snapped like cotton using 60cm queenies for live bait mate so good luck with your overhead rod...

personally i reckon you're dreamin....

Massive groper 4m ish or huge tigers were regular culprits on the end of these rediculous setups in my younger jetty rat days over there, also big spainyards are an epic LB. capture if you run live sardines in the dry season and get extra lucky around the pylons on the spin setup youre mentioning.

Best of luck mate " You've gotta be in it to win it "

bring spare braid. Matey.

User live sardines or mullet strips. Banana prawns work really well to. In terms of powerful enough rods/reels I recommend Fin-Nor Offshore Spinning Reels. The models from OF65 up have 27.2 kg of drag. They're fairly priced as well ($169 at BCF). For the rod go 6 foot or 6'6 8 - 15 kg. I use a Silstar 8 - 15 kg however with a Penn 750 SSM (they only have 5 kg drag) and have pulled up some big fish there. Use 40lb line and 60 - 80 lb leader. For macks or sharks - any wire trace that is 30+ kg rated. Ichiban hooks (I sell them if you're interested) size 6 or Maikuro size 7 hooks are best.

Landing the fish you need someone on the stairs or.......use a crab pot with extended line. Any small to medium fish use size 4000 reel with 30 lb line and 60 lb leader. In the dry there is usually sardine gathering at the bottom of the jetty. Get a drawstring cast net and cast for a few. Attach a float to the live sardine and yall good to go.

Live crabs off the length out to the end. Throw them out looking towards the entrance of the harbour.
