Newbie in the Cooks


Recommended Posts

Hit the Cooks again today with good mate Smitty and new to soft plastics fishing,Nathan.

We gave the jews a try but no luck again and some strange goings on with the tides as it was supposed to be running out when we arrived and it didnt start till nearly an hour late(maybe tsunami effects).

We headed further up the Cooks and the bream and flatties were on straight away with Nathan getting his first fish on plastics on the second cast :yahoo: and on and on it went with Smitty,Nathan and myself belting the crap out of the fish population.

Most fish were taken on 50mil squidgies and other assorted placcies with light jig hooks.

We scored flatties,bream both yellowfin and black ones a flounder for Nathan and a nice trevally falling to Smittys offerings as well as a heap of tailor.

The tides in the cooks on Saturday were very strange, changed direction at least 4 times in the few hours I was out.

I have never seen anything like it, the fish didn't seem to mind though!
