First Snapper


Recommended Posts

Nailed my first Snapper today out at Wattamolla. Came in at 60cm and around 2kgs.

I went out today with some reports of big reds there but with my luck trying to fish for them was always going to be a joke.

I got down to the rocks at 12pm and had nothing but small bites all day, switched rigs, changed hooks...did everything I could imagine to entice the buggers but nothing save for a small ray which went back in the drink. I switched spots, ended up chucking out a whole Slimey tail nothing hit it on the first retrieve then about 10 mins later BAM my rod when down. AT first I thought it was a salmon or tailor or maybe even a small shark because it wasn't really fighting, save from going down deep as it could. Then the beauty showed itself and I screamed "SNAPPER". Pretty stoked with it! Been trying off an on for the past 6 months to nail one and I finally did!.
