Painful Session

Recommended Posts

Got so excited yesterday at work as i was looking forward to a prospectful night of EP fishing. We started flicking around Grenwel point for some Jew for a few hours but one hook up for just a few seconds and then nothing after that. As always flicking around the Regional Jetty at Grenwel Point always turns up fish. Scored a few very small flathead right below us and scoring a instant hook up with a tease of the lure in front of them.

Upon leaving my plastic sit mid water of the jetty for too long gave a massive toad a chance to eat my plastic. This toad would have been 3kg+. I decided to leave the bugger sit on the jetty until he turned into a spalding and then with my water booties on (bare in mind oysters dont cut through them) i gave him a bit of a boot and oooooccccchhhhhh!!! :1yikes: Being slack to toads has its consequences i sufferd two puntures one on the front of my big toe and under the nail of the one next door!!!! It was bloody painful. I dont know if it left its jizz in the wound but the wholes wernt big enough to cause such pain. It dissapated after a while.

There wasnt much size in any of the lizards there so we decided to head over to the coastal patrol jetty seeing though a nice flicking spot over at the Bowlo was locked. After a few solid hits i hooked up on what a first fought like a big lizard but then looked like a whiting and turned out to be a dirty smelly pike..... :mad3:

Flicking around the jetty's there tured up a few tailor, i threw a mong of a cast over to one jetty and snagged and by experience (i say lightly) i decied to do the straight rod huri curi to my line. After three pulls i was shot in the top right hand corner of my chest! I though i had been hit by a paintball!!

My squidgy jig head hook had snapped and the whole lot without the lure had 30m to gather speed and slog me one. I was nearly sick!!!

After two painful episodes we diceided to hit up the EP spot. 1 hour pasted and no EP's. Baitfish everywhere

and alot of action, scored a nice lizard about 40cm, but that was it.

Driving back along seven mile beach road at 1am we spotted a nice landrover with a tree nearly touching the passenger seat.

Two guys said a car pulled out at the Berry intersection along seven mile beach road and they lost control and hit the tree at 70km/h!!!!! What i found unbeliveable was the fact they were talking at all!!! One guy had a saw kneck but other than that ok. The airbags didnt even deploy.

Nice night last night anyway.

As my old soccer coach always said......"use the inside of your foot".

Nice work on the flatty.

What did you do with the pike?...make a good bait for jew they do.

Yes, toe punts arnt a good idea while playing soccer with toads!

Well i rarely use bait for jewies, but i have caught jewies on smelly old pike.
