Early gilt trip


Recommended Posts

Good luck, Maverick! They are fascinating fish. One thing to add: don't strike at the knocks - wait for the rod to pull round, click reel into gear and resist the pull. No need for violent striking as this is close-range work. They fight incredibly hard, especially on light gear when they turn side-on to the tide. Don't put your fingers in their mouth. They have small, sharp teeth at the front, crushing pads behind and very powerful jaws. They can smash a crab or full-size mussel with ease. PH
