Brooklyn Saturday

Shark Bait

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Fished Patonga 3.30pm saturday with a friend of mine who had never caught a fish before. Fishing with plastics, we caught 6 in an hour and a half. 5 were legal, & he caught four of them. We were stoked.

From there we went to Barrenjoey to chase Tailor. We were trawling Rapalas in 7 metres of water when we got snagged & lost 2 lures. From there we cast into the wash on the rocks, trying different spots. Caught nothing.

From there it got dark & we went to Little Wobby chasing School Jew. We were there for the turn of the tide for about 2 hours for nothing. Normally I'd stay in one spot & sook about not catching fish, but this time I figured we'd move & try another spot. We went to the 3rd pylon on the northern side of the railway bridge & set up our squid again. Just got comfortable & the eels moved in. Two eels later at 10pm, we figured it was time to head home.

A top evening on the water, we got in to some flatties & my mate will be grinning for a week.

Oh,....Thanks brickman for the advice for fishing Barrenjoey. I'll try again next time.

Good effort Shark Bait,

I had a similar result of Sat morning, took my neighbour out taught him how to fish a soft plastic.

He caught 2 in the first two casts we ended up with eight from 36cm to 56cm absolute ripper of a day calm and sunny.
