Hi, keith fishes Fleetwood, no doubt he will post his next trip, also we go on the blue mink a couple of times a year, the next trip isnt far away. Watch out for postings, and just put your name down if interested. Cheers..Mick

Use 15lb mainline but DONT FORGET to use a shockleader. The general rule is 10lb for every oz of lead. ie if you use a 6oz lead use a 60lb leader.I alway use a 70lb leader so as to cover all leads. The leader should go around the spool 8 times plus 1.5 times the length of the rod.
