You can swim harder for cob if you want to , heheheheh

We have raggies and big bronsies that will take a swim bait , but I think you will hook more whites than anything else.But prob worth a try .

Our shallow beaches dont seem very " friendly" dont know the word to swimming as the swim bait dies quickly because of the line drag ie he cant get into deeper water quickly enough and there is always a lot of line in the water .

That my personal view , also fired on by me hating to swim a bait , I will do it but dont like it much.I will swim a blueray anyday , dont like them.They can also lie on the ground and still breath while a shark cant.

Why swim if you can slide a whole bonnie and get solid pulls all the time.

But I am the wrong Guys to ask is what I am trying to say , hehehe

Which sharks other than blacktips and great whites breach the water?

I had a 200lbs throw bait trace on at platbank and had a descent pull, the fish launched itself clear of the water and spun a number of times... needless to say i had immediate slack...... the steel trace was broken close to the power swivel that was attached to my mainline

I know threshers can also launch them self when hooked. Also got chomped within seconds from the pickup on 200lbs steel some time ago. But i saw the cuplrit as he breached.

Eviljohn are you 100% sure it was bronzies and not small GW pups? Also heard of jumping bronzies but futher "investigation" showed it was actualy young GW in the 150kg-250 class.
