Bream reaper!


Recommended Posts

G'day raiders,

Had planned to catch up with mate and fellow raider Dom this arvo and hopefully chase some snapper off the rocks. Well, the wind conspired against us so I had to change plans and I decided we go for a fish off the nelson bay breakwall. So Dom brought a mate along and I took the two eldest boys along and we arrived right on the tide change. With Dom being a plastic specialist and me with my hybrid technique the lines went out and the fish gods favored me first, a nice healthy bream!


From then on it was constant hook ups and many fish landed and dropped. Doms mate tried fishing my way and landed a few too, that he was pretty happy about. I even convinced Dom of my technique and he gave in and landed a nice 35cm+ bream. Not to be our done, I landed a cracker that bricked me twice but I managed to land him after some freespool and put some hurt on him.


As the light began to fade it was time for a few more casts and then it was scratchie jnrs turn. He got a new rod today for his birthday tomorrow and what a way to christen it with a cracking bream and a PB for him going just under 40cm.


All up we probably landed 15-20 bream between us. Released most but kept a few for the table! Not a bad afternoon.

For a bit of further information for those visiting the bay, I ran into 3 blokes who had been chasing kings further down the wall. In 3 days they have hooked 8 kings between 3 of them and they have not landed one. I thought there gear might have been a bit limp but when I seen his Stella 10000 and 80lb line and the trebles pull of his popper, I got pretty excited. There's some big fish out there!

Thanks for reading,

Cheers scratchie!!!

Well done. A few years back, caught my biggest flattie ever right out the front of the caravan park at Lemon Tree Passage. Some good fish in those waters. (And good title for your post!)
