Fishing Coffs Harbour beaches last year and only getting small bites, I moved around to the rocks at the end of the beach. Still getting baits taken with no result until I inevitably got snagged and broke the line. I had been fishing with a standard running sinker and 600mm trace, but decided to try the Paternoster rig to keep the bait off the bottom and hopefully less snags. The next 13 casts landed me 12 fish. The rig allowed me to feel the bites better which resulted in better hook ups. Had a lot of fun that morning.
