Welcome to a great sport but beware of being suckered in. There is no such thing as a wonder rig or bait. My advice would be to stick to something basic for rigs such as a knotless knot type setup and use a good quality bait. Some of the baits from Pallatrax are sufficiently different from the crowd and catch a lot of fish. They stay on well which is important when night fishing.

have a look here. Jungle is a cracker and has all the matching dips pop ups etc. If you want to check it out more just take a look at Pallatrax own site.


Good luck what ever you do and feel free to ask what ever you like if you want more information.
