Bloody Leatherjackets will chew anything . . . we've had plagues of them offshore Sydney and they took about 100m of braid and my Sampo swivel dropping for bottom fish last time I went out zippedsmilie zippedsmilie zippedsmilie zippedsmilie

Good eating tho and easy to clean Mully . . . 1 cut and rip and the skin comes off with the guts still in it

Well done to get them on a lure but you'll lose some
