Harbour landbased 14.3.11


Recommended Posts

Had a couple of good nights lately since getting sick of the schools of salmon, tailor and bonito that seem to have replaced all the kings :wacko: .

The first night fished with a mate at a wharf near the bridge. Not too many runs but perfect conditions and a large variety of bait (at one point we had live gars, yakkas, herring and squid). Ended up getting one 60 cm jewie on a yakka and a decent flatty.

The next night at a nearby wharf we set up at around 9pm. The conditions were very poor with a strong southerly blowing and on and off showers. Apparently the fish didnt mind this and we caught 3 legal bream and one large blue swimmer.

It wasnt till around 1am that i finally got the nice big run I had been waiting for. With the bell ringing I set the hooks and after a fight, that felt like a fair while but was probably only 5 min or so, I landed a solid Jewie(93cm). :thumbup:

Pretty stoked but a little sour it didnt hit the meter mark. It took a live yakka pinned with 2 7/0 octopus on 60lb fluero. No more runs after that but i wasnt complaining :biggrin2: .
