Lb Blackie Madness


Recommended Posts

I had to post this report on behalf of a mate who's a long time fr voyeur but never signed up for membership.

On Saturday he hit a well known and heavily used sydney wharf close to an even better known and even heavier fished bait ground in middle harbour.

The plan was to convert some locally caught yakkas in to yellow tails of a much larger variety. The session began very promising with his yakkas preferring air to water and some solid runs without hookup. Unfortunately, the hot bite dried up as the sun rose higher. About to pack it in, he observed a well known tour operator rock up close to the wharf in his purple boat and get stuck into some amazing blackies. Ten fish in under an hour and about as many bust offs.

Armed with the free demo, he set about mimicking the techniques as best he could the following monday. The following pics tell you the rest of the story.
