Re: Weekend report.

Top job Carl, Reckon the swell helps when floating deadbaits gives them a bit of life.

Re: First kingy

That’s a cracking fish. Over the metre is fantastic, especially out of the yak. Still chasing my second one.

Re: float fishing

I do a lot of it from trout to sharks. It even works well from the boat.

Re: Float fishing and circle hooks

When you floatfish you have to have the rod in hand or very near. Its only if you leave the bite that you get gut hooked fish. I put everything back and thats one of the reasons I like float fishing, also im a lazy b@stard so hate constant lure casting.

Re: DEFINITELY NOT A RAT KING AT DOCKLANDS

That was a pretty big fish, not going to be able to skull drag that onto the dock. He'd have been absolutely gutted, fish of a lifetime off the shore.

Chasing big fish

Was on a flight last week and watched Jaws, reminded me I had been trying (mostly unsuccessfully) to catch one from the shore in PPB. Saw the forecast for a solid offshore breeze at one of the spots I had hooked up on so gave it a go. Conditions were great but the fish didn't turn up. Waited for 3 h...

Re: WFT Gliss Monotex Hybrid Fishing Line - anyone use it?

I have been using it for float fishing, the bouyancy is great so it works perfectly for that. Agree though that its crap for lure fishing.

Portsea pier

Had a bash on Portsea today. The boats were smashing couta on the drift, they were well within casting range but couldnt get them to take anything. I tried several different slugs, even put a set of silver feathers on but no go. I was fishing on the bottom with the other rod and barely losing a bait...
