well here is last nights report got to moggs about eleven it was breezy but the rain cleared when i got there set up my gear fished a 2/0pennell pulley at distance loaded with fresh peeler and a second rod close in with a two hook flapper loaded with rag, bluey or mackeral. nothing happened for two hours then i was graced with a decent sized dab on the pulley rig then nothing until just after 5 o clock when the the pulley rig went mental i nearly wet myself put up hell of a scrap but i teased it to with in ten feet of the shore when it broke surface and i could see a dorsal fin then it threw a right paddy shaking its head and then the line went slack and the rod tip sprung skyward and then it was gone my first ever smut hunt my first ever smut and i lost it thats when the swearing words started easily into double figures without repitition it had chewed through a 25lb snood i am GUTTED:wallbash::wah::ahhh: am now planning my next trip down there

hard luck there mate...
i always use 60lb hook lengths on a pulley rig.. helps with the shock of casting..
and helps against possiable bite off,s.. and the rubbing of the fish on the hook length...
