Snappertastic on the Plastics!

Wayne has been at it again folks.
Friday night Wayne took the tub out in metro waters to pass a few hours. He anchored up at an undisclosed location and proceeded to burley up for a snapper or two.
Once the trail was established he unholstered the weapon of choice, a Wilson Palagic Graphite rod 15-20lb, paired with a Shimano Stradic 4000 and fishing 15lb Berkley Fire Line braid.
Down went a Berkley Gulp 7 inch Jerk Shad soft plastic in the Pink Shine colour and up came this monster.

Massive Snapper

SnapperZilla

Lenght 1160mm. The fish was released to breed again being such an old fish.
Well done Wayne.
