full moon sucks for fishing good for squidStarrangerAU wrote:Well Saturday mornings forecast looked for a good morning to get out and wet the line, the tides weren't in favor but as the NT advertisement goes... "You'll never never know, if you never never go". Now I'm, not usually a fan of the Sandringham YC wall, mainly because the parking their is $$$ , so I was pretty rapt to see an 'Out of Order' on the terminal panel when I arrived. This could be a good omen I thought....
Moving down onto the rockwall I was very pleased to see a good wealth of bird activity straight out from the yacht club, probably about 200 mtrs. A good 100+ birds divebombing the water for 30mins. Now I know you boaties probably get that all the time, but us land based folk don't get the opportunity all that often. So quickly I rig up the two big rods, both with pillies, and hoist them out as far as I can go....and set and wait.... meanwhile I also go light nearer to the rocky structures with a tiddler rod and fresh mussels... set and wait...
Without drawing out the inevitable conclusion..let just say I waited three hours, without a single bite. There are worse ways of spending a Saturday morning, but geez, a bite or two would've been nice. So all in all, a very poor result on what was a very fine looking morning.
tldr; Sandringham, 3 hours, no bites.
