New jig outfit!

Picked up my new jig outfit from Campbells:

 

Uglystick 15kg bluewater 5'6" rod

Shimano Stradic FJ 5000 reel

300m PE3 jigging braid (petek?)

 

Thanks Leemo for spooling it.  Will send in a photo of of my first fish, hopefully a big fat demersal!

I got one today too, ordered it on ebay yesterday morning and it was waiting for me when I got home today. But I get to use it cos I bought it myself (against the wishes of the better half).

 

I only got a cheap setup to start with:

Saratoga Tournament Jig Rod 6'0" 15-24kg - $90

Saratoga Predator 8000 Reel - $80

500m 50lb PEX Spectra Mulit Colour Braid $35

They claim to have comparable quality to the big name brands so I guess I'll find out on sunday with saltwater charters. Fingers crossed the braid arrives by friday though.

 

Can anyone suggest some good jigs for demersals and where to get them? I've already got a heap for sambos/aj's but nothing for demersals other than a couple of 150g Ocktas.

 

Cheers Eamon
