Check out this Snapper!

The staff here at CH Smith Marine are all keen fishermen who like to practice what we preach – and try out all the latest Gear as it comes in-store!

 

Volkan was fishing off Brighton in Port Phillip Bay when he caught this 6.5kg beauty. The bay is well known for its seasonal snapper Run late in the year, as snapper are attracted here due to rising water temperatures.

 

To catch a Big Red, you'll want something tough to reel them in – and a 3-7kg Veritas rod, paired with a Penn Conflict 3000 reel, is perfect for the job.

 

Tee these up with 15lb Maxima Ultragreen Monofilament, 40lb Tough Trace Leader, a twin-fibre snell and some size 5 Gamakatsu Octopus hooks, and you're all set to go!
