Had a few short sessions in the last couple of weeks despite the relentless wind.

Got out for an early session aiming to  catch my first jack for the season but they have proved hard to tempt thus far, trevally have been breaking up the relentless casting 




and GT', after being all but absent through winter and spring they've appeared in big schools up river certainly a surprise when bream spinning ended up with a good dozen trevs for the session the fish were really fired up until a sudden southerly change came through and all went quiet.

A few days after got out for an after work session, again started off spinning for jacks but the persistant wind made it near impossible moved locations to find some sheltered water, switched focus to bream and didn't take long to get a willing participant 


moved on towards some sheltered oyster racks leading into the racks started flicking a plastic around. A hit on the flats and instantly busted off by what I assume was a solid GT because my drag was tight in preparation for the upcoming racks. 

There was plenty of life on the racks it still took a while to get a proper bite but once I did it was the ususal go for broke chaos


another nice bream for the arvo

continued casting the racks, there were plenty of fish feeding just a bit spooky put in plenty of good casts  for no result and finally with the plastic sitting deep while adusting the electric motor I saw a tap in the line,  immediately hit the fish and went as hard as possible took quite a bit of effort but managed to pull a quality bream from under the racks


nothing like a rack bream, that finished the session as the bushfire smoke makes it dark early

Managed to sqeeze in another uick pre work session up at Nambucca having a quick landbased cast. After many casts the prospect of a doughnut was looking likely in desperation I started casting plastics aiming for leahterjackets and fortunetly one was happy to oblige 


a little fan-bellied jacket to break the doughnut 

heading back for the car put some casts out aimed at catching a bluefin trev which are still hanging around wasn't expecting much as the water was a bit dirty form the low tide, and in the middle of daydreaming the lure was nailed and the drag singing 


a quality bluefin, really gave me some curry they stubbornly get their side in the current and can be hard to turn 

That was it for the last few sessions 

hopefully the warm weather will see the acks play the game soon

cheers for reading
