 Bit of revenge on the RDO today, the earmuffs were needed when hooks straighted on what I expect was her horse red in 14m water. Nothing like ebay hook specials.

Cheap hooks can be ok but many just don't hold up to big fish

 Certainly was, except she wanted to stay out past dark to find the next one - not the worst of problems.

 I buy 2 x 18ft throw nets before start of each summer for barra for $50 off ebay. By end of summer they're ripped and stuffed so I repurpose the lead for running rigs. Because the sinker hole size is for rope, I do a triple snell which makes the third hook more as a keeper for the sinkers. In this case guts had both hooks in his mouth and I twisted it up heaps trying to untangle from the net.

For that price you can't go wrong. Too damn expensive up here , my net has got more repairs than a hookers fishnet stocking

 I looked at that and noticed the throw net sinkers. It bought a smile to my face because ours usually get melted down for number 3 beans.
