good stuff elmo well done on the snaps…6/0 is perfect for moki..you avoid most of the undersized fish..everyone thinks they have small mouths but them big moochers open up wide..the bigger ones 5lb and over can swallow a paddle crab with ease..same with the ele’s in the fishing mags so called experts who have probably never caught an ele will tell you they have tiny mouths and to use 1/0..i use 6-7/0 and never really losefish because they are hooked properly in the cheek..went out tonight ..1 kahawai smallish it still had spots..yum..a red cod and 2 moki kept one put one back..got one on mussel the smaller on cooked prawn..
