New to Surf fishing


Recommended Posts

Going to Durras Lakes for 2 weeks, staying caravan park that one side is the beach and the other is the lake.

I have everything for the lake for flathead ok it is the beach that I need some advice.

My gear is 12ft rod (several), Alvey reels and large spinning reels.

I bought a paternoster rig for whiting which has loop knots, my questions looking at surf rigs they use a 3way swivel which is the better to use. Target fish is whiting and bream.


thanks norm
