Hey @dogface3247 I noticed that lowering a bit the size of the lines (15kg braid) and leader (12kg carbon) and the lures (11g) during the hot hours help a lot. I use bigger lures only in the peak hours (early morning, evening) because the big predators are more likely to be in place and willing to bite. The same I do for retrieve. Slow, stealthy retrieves during hot hours, fast and lively retrieves in the peak hours.
About your feeder rig. The line is very thick and visible, expecially without a proper fluorocarbon leader. I would go for 10 to 15kg line paired with the same size of fluorocarbon leaders. Do not fear thin tackle setups, your gold 80 can hold a lot of low size line.
Line size and type count a lot now. A correct use of it can make the difference.
