Fishing Tip #21 - Lumo Beads

If you're fishing at night or in low light conditions, this little tip will help draw the fishes attention to your bait! It's a big ocean during the day but at night it's a whole new ball game. Give the fish a chance to find your bait and 'light it up'.

Fishing Tip #20 - Circle Hooks

Particularly useful when releasing the fish is at the top of your mind, circle hooks offer you not only that option, but also a very strong securing point to the fish during battle. By it's nature, a circle hook rolls into the corner of the fishers mouth at hook up meaning you are connected to a very tough part of the fish.

Fishing Tip #15 - Deepwater Tactics

If you're going to send a bait 300mtrs below you want to be sure it's got a good chance of hooking into something; and if you do that you've got a good chance of getting it back to the surface. Here's Matt's top three deep water tactics for improving your chances.

Fishing Tip #13 - Releasing Deepwater Fish

Often when we are targeting deep water species we do so with multiple hook rigs. So when you get a double or triple hook up you can end up with excess fish. This tip is a clever way of releasing deep water species back into the high pressure environments that they live in, thus improving fish mortality.
