sorry for the late reply, i completely forgot to come on the forum.
NT Wombat thanks a lot for the precious advice, I'll have to put in practice all this.
Can't wait to get one of this beast and taste it too.

And about the good quality gear I have a saragossa 6000, a spinfisher 7500 and 9000 with strong heavy road, is that strong enough?

Anyway I think soon I'll look to go fishing with an experimented local fisherman, if I can manage to find someone who want to spend time with me and show me around.

I use a saragossa 6000 a bit, and you are a bit at the mercy of where the fish goes, a big jewie that wants to get back into a wreck will. That said I caught my PB of 132cm on my Saragossa. The big spinfisher would be perfect for the wrecks where you need to stop them quicker than on natural reef. I'm a bit tied up for about the next month, if no one else has taken you out by then I'll take you out for a look.
