    Surf Candies or Clousers. Try single strand trolling wire in 27lb or Tiger wire, but I think they eyesight is pretty sharp so a hard mono will get more bites.

    Thanks for the reply lads👍 It won’t be long until they’re on my doorstep (palmy reef). I haven’t fished for them in years because it such a shit fight! Lol. I’m pumped to target them on fly! I’ve got a few surf candies and clousers, so I’ll give them a try.

    cheers
