Bate bay first timer


Recommended Posts

Hey guys

All week I've been watching the weather all week and I had planned a trip out from the hacking into bate bay and drift for flatties! So thismorning I was up early planning to pull past macs bait bar around six then hit yowie bay ramp shortly after and I be off but I arrived at the bait shop at 545 and waited for him to open...... 645 ahhhh stuff it servo bait it is.

Anyways I get out In the bay and start a drift in 20 of water and not 2 mins later WACK 4 to 6 kg rod bent. And pulling hard run after run .. What is ?! A meter and a bit shark comes to the surface.. Not the flatties I was targeting ! I think a gummy?

Down goes a new set of baits and again it's barley hit the bottom and I pull up two flatties on my two hook set up.. Awesomeeeee! First flatty was 45 cm and the second 39 These were kept for my lunch when I get back.

For the next two hours I pulled in up to 15 flatties ranging from undersize 20 cm to 44 cm these all went back as I had caught my lunch already.

Awesome morning on the water and a great first trip outside!

Hopefully I can do it all again tomorrow ..

Cheers stanto

You'r doing quite well to get onto fish first time in that area.

Let's hope you can repeat it tomorrow.

Cant beat the taste of fresh Flaties.

Well done.
