Here’s Daz from Australia. Daz is one of my first readers and also one of the first slow pitch jiggers in Australia. Nice fishing at 260m deep!

Hi Totos,

I had a nice day on the water jigging and bottom fishing with the new electric.
Was able to stay vertical in 260 metres with a 220 gram gawky.

Fish were thick on the sounder.
Landed three fish in three drops and then lost 2 jigs in the next 2 drops to big fish.
I was fishing with light leader.


Thank you Daz.
When it’s deeper than 200m, a lot of times the water pushes the line so much and the fish contacts do not feel like fish. But because you were with the light line, I think, you were able to invite and detect the contacts.

Nicely done, Daz!

But actually, I was more curious about what the half-filleted fish on the floor doing for the whole time! Were you hungry???
