Have you ever considered the impact of using a light leader? It's a secret weapon for many successful anglers. Simply reducing your line strength from 30lb to 20lb can significantly increase snapper strikes. Going even lighter to 10-15lb during quieter bite times can be the difference between a successful catch and settling for beans on toast for dinner. This is especially true when fishing in clear waters over open ground. A light leader can provide the edge you need.

The same principle applies to kingfish. In many areas, a 30lb leader is more than sufficient, particularly when using light gear in open waters like the Hauraki Gulf. If kingfish are preying on bait schools in the vicinity, they'll be attracted to a well-presented lure on a light leader, ensuring a thrilling fishing experience. And for those challenging days when the fish are present but not biting, perhaps due to a SE wind just before a full moon, switching to a light leader can be a game-changer.
