Drought Breaking Weekend


Recommended Posts

After a run of ducks that had gone 6 weeks, I think I was becoming a bad luck charm.

I headed out to the lower harbour, south side.

There was a guy already fishing the spot, I said 'G'Day and mind if I join you'.

Turned out to be Howsy. He already had about 4 in the bag.

The bite was pretty good, and I managed 6 fish and a few more pulled hooks

I kept 3 for dinner.

On Sunday I went back for more, Howsy was there again, and O J Sampson with his mate.

Howsy got a couple, and we could see big schools come thru near the surface, but they didn't


We pulled the pin around 12

With the leftover bait and berley I headed to the northside.

Having never fished the spot before I didn't have great expectation, but it wasn't long before my

first fish. The bite was pretty hot for a while, with pulled hooks and bust offs. I was getting more downs but couldn't set the hook.

Then I caught my first Surgeon. Sorry no picture, I put him back in.

That was followed by another Blackfish, more pulled hooks and misses


Pretty good weekend, and great to meet fellow Raiders who share the passion.

Thanks mate.

It can be hit and miss.

I had a few zeros west of the bridge.

The fish weren't there. I think the winter visitors are leaving.

Thats why I went east.

Some of the schooled travellers were in the 50cm range
