Those depths

I would strongly suggest a Talica 12 (single speed), pe5 braid, and something like a Daiwa saltist hyper rod. The talica’s are a bulletproof reel with plenty of stopping power. The guys we fish with when heading north, pretty much all have one.

 Tyrnos 30 loaded with at least pe5  and a 15-24kg stick will stop most things up there. Depends what style of botton bouncing you want to do? Jigs or bait?

 not a fan of over heads so id go a saragosa 10000 with 50lb quality braid, rod of your choice and budget but i am also a fan of the diawa saltist hypers like scano has suggested, can use to troll as well

My preferences

Sun, 2019-03-10 17:29

Talica 12 2 speed loaded with pe6 , mated to demon blood rod for the deeper work. Shallow stuff ( less than 20 m ) a TLD 5 with pe2 on an ugly stick bait caster , good for shits and giggles . Penn affinity 150 running 15 lb on a super whippy rod for chucking metals around for Bonito for bait - this one is the most fun ....:)

 Demon Blood range cannot be beaten IMO. I  have light and heavies to cover all the bases to match the Stella's ;)

 All good recommendations

 All good recommendations here. Silver fox and gilly are on the money. Talica 12 (I prefer single speed tho)matched with demon blood. Good rods at a reasonable price 

As for  spin I run saragosa 10k again with demon blood

 Get yourself a deep jig 300 and match it with a 18-20k sized reel loaded with 80lb for the monsters up there.  Worked off Exmouth anyway, gota beat the sharks

Get a 25kg overhead ugly stik, TLD 50 2 speed with 25kilo line of your choice, will stop just about everything and will cost you half what you would pay for anything else.

spin

Mon, 2019-03-11 12:37

  i prefera spin outfit myself , go a 20k/ 25k  Saragosa (10k is a bitch for winding lead with the higher gear ratio) and a t Curve 200 spin with 60-80lb braid on another note is that you Shaun? (my cousin i think)

 Way more power with an overhead compare with spin. Talica 12 singel speed (2 speed not as good IMO) with an upgraded handle (standard handle arm is too short, get a longer handle for much more pleasant experience) and run the spool no more than 60% full to get the right retrieve ratio.....perfect.
