Fishing on a charter boat with a heap of other people, no one was catching a thing!
When the fishing slowed down I put one of the Aqua Soaka's on as I needed a bit more weight. And sure as eggs it wasn't long before I had on a good snapper. Not convinced that it wasn't a fluke I re-baited and gave it another chance. Bang almost straight away and I was into another snapper.
Now I was starting to think there maybe something in this new piece of kit. So I snuck over and gave one to my mate Tom. Everyone else was looking a bit glum and my two snapper hadn't brightened anyone up all too soon. Within a few minutes Tom had a nice snapper on board and I had another one as well. What can you say...

I was sitting out on the boat floating whole pilchards out the back and pulling in a snapper every half hour. Wanting to try something different I put down two extra lines with Soaka's on them. It was like turning on a light switch with both of these lines producing snapper at the same time. After rebaiting and putting them over the side again the same thing happened. It got to the stage that I had to put one of these rods away so that I could control what was happening. It turned out that at the end of the days fishing the Aqua Soaka lines caught my snapper at the rate of 4 to 1 compared to the other method I was using. I will always use Aqua Soaka now to produce a feed on the boat.

Not even a bite for me and these guys had boated three each. They kept on teasing me until I at last relented and gave one of their Aqua Soaka's a go. No BS this time. I was in business almost straight away, boating the biggest blue cod I'd ever caught.

Making sure no-one was looking , I went out the fourth night, bloody hungry and quite convinced that these Aqua Soaka things were bloody useless and a bit of a prank. I tried bait for a couple of hours with my usual lead sinkers …No joy there!
It took me a while to stick on these Soaka things, but finally on they go. - I’m sitting there thinking, “Must be cracking up something serious, at sucking me in”. When, Whammo ! My bloody line takes off !!! After four fish in the bin..... (The following afternoon so amazed at how well they worked, Marty went out again to try & prove it was something else that made them bite after 2 fruitless hours using lead, the following happened.) :- Yet I put on one of these Soaka’s and I get smashed, filled up the bin! I can stop moaning about being hungry, yet I’m a bit confused as to why these things work so well.

I knew Paul would need all the help he could get to out fish me, so his Soaka was of little concern to myself. We started to fish away, to my total disbelief he started pulling up and releasing fish left right and centre. I was dumb founded, I hadn't even landed a fish, finally I did but I was well behind him.
