Quinns Rocks Sharks

for anyone local to the area looking to stretch the arms, Fished the beach just north of Portofinos (north of the netted off swimming area) early am on the 28/12/20 and was busted off by two sharks. had about 7 feet of leader and the tail rubbed through the mainline so im guessing it was about 7 foot. Hooked another one about 30 mins later, same thing happened.

Both took about 250-300m of line (40lb 4s Jbraid) before i was able to turn them around then pop!. I guess the funny thing is i was only using a single 8/0 circle hook and medium size mullet fillet and only casting about 30/50 metres at most. Seems like the sharks are really hungry and close in. Scary stuff.

Had plenty of sharks up at Eden Beach at sunset/sunrise but to think they're coming into a flat, near featureless beach like the one at Quinns is pretty wild.

Be careful out there....
