Many of the largest snappers have been caught on strayline rigs. Letting a whole pilchard or squid slowly float and sink in the water seems to be very attractive for the larger snappers, even the odd kingie have fallen for this method. This Screaming Reels kit comes highly recommended by us. We have fished with this rod and reels for two years on our charter boat and they perform, every day.
The kit includes, apart from the rod and reel (spooled with IGFA 10kg line), six sets of pretied rigs as well as small sinkers, swivels, leader and a bait knife. Just to get out there!
