 I got a dhu on Monday - first for a while so i was pretty happy

 Although i was fishing for dhues so not as stoked as you would have been 

 When i lived in Perth and had a cracking KG spot out from Ocean Reef, I also used 3/0s 

 The KGs were all around 50 cm - i would have dropped to 2/0 for smaller fish
