Donkey sooty grunter tactics... don’t go to light for them! Tighten that drag, get a rod that’s still got plenty of tip but packs some low end grunt. I used a NS Avenger 8-17lb paired with a 4000 sized abu revo loaded with the new sunline siglon 16lb multi coloured. I found the multicoloured was the key to not missing a fish. I was using a lightly weighted slow sinking placcy, thrown an inch from the timber. Being able to focus on the point of line where it changes colour made it so easy to see that bite tick in the windy conditions, I was rarely wrong when I wound up on a bite, if your too slow to act with these big ones, it’s gone before you know your hooked up!
We claimed biggest bag and biggest fish for the comp, so I’m confident to have sootys sorted 🤙 #sootygrunter#50+ #nsblackhole#sunlinesiglon#eungelladam#hobiepolarized#donkeysfordays@ej_todd
