Busso Area outfit

Just got myself a new tub and once I get all the gear- sounder/plotter, epirb, flares etc Im going to be doing a bit of running out towards wrights bank, the coral lumps, 8 mile reef even the wave buoy off yallingup.

Ive passed my old braid concept jig rod onto a mate as he wanted it and I wantsomething a little different.  It caught me a handful of good fish but was hard work when I hooked something decent.

Looking at the tcurve revolution vertical 20-30lb and running my saragosa 5000 with 30lb braid on it.  Dhuies, Snapper, Nannies and all the usual demersals plus some smaller model YTK's and sambos.  Also got a saragosa 18000 which I will be using on a custom popping stick up north but thought I would get an 80lb jig rod as well- for bigger sambos and kingies.  Thinking the same tcurve but in 65-80lb strength.

Would love some opinions on these rods.

Also if anyone is looking for a deckie or wants to do a bit of a convoy out deep over the coming months please let me know.

Cheers

G'day Brad your gosa 5000 is plenty for the demersals down here, I run same size reel as a heavier plastics outfit but barely use it prefer the certate with pe2 and a Stella 8000 for dedicated seriola jigging.
Enjoy

Dave is the guy with a slight lisp and always wears denim shorts pulled up high

Not that there is anything wrong with that.
