    Opinions please… Flurocarbon leader when using braid, a must, a maybe etc? Struggling with uniknot catching slightly in the last guide when casting. No helping me get off the mark! Ha

    I dont use braid myself Sam but I have seen quite a few people who do, have no leader and use a Palomar knot to tie directly onto lures

    13 around macintoshes to 2pm, 3 on boats 2 on point. I was the one cheered I think don’t really know too focused on the fish as I finally landed one after losing 3 last week, they have been giving me a hard time about it offering to buy my new rod etc. it was just over 11 lb.

    Good on you burkefish. I had my first experience at macs on Saturday 5am-11.30am and there were about 9 caught up till then. 2 caught next to me, 1 hooked right in front of my feet!and my zeddie was right behind percies when he got it!dammit im still tryin to get my first,been tryin 4 years(2years seriously). apparently nothing ever gets caught before first light?but in other areas I have lost them in the dark? these bloody salmon are weird man. Such a shame the forecast rain may not come next week. Anyway it was nice to see fish about for a change.
