Buying rods in bulk sight unseen from our suppliers can be a lucky dip. But with our new micro jigging rods I was pretty confident, because had sent not just pictures but a video of the rod in action on a Rompin sailfish. That was spectacular and got a big response from Facebook readers. Anyway when a big carton arrived from DHL I opened it with a lot of anticipation. And soon after was over the moon at how good these micro jigging rods are. K guides, Fuji reel seat, split butt. The guides are a little larger than on the Gomoku, meaning not as many problems with the braid to mono knot passing through.

A few days later and we were back outside, this time light jigging. Up to a wreck off Long Reef and all signs promising good fishing. Clear water, good sounder shows, correctly matched tackle and most importantly, an enthusiastic upbeat crew. Here’s a short clip showing what happened next, three hook-ups in forty seconds:
Most of the kingies were right on the legal mark, with a few around 70cm. On 6 kilo tackle we had some great sport:
