Sandringham - 08/10 - PM

Post by StarrangerAU » Tue Oct 09, 2018 12:25 pm

Short report:

The weekends good weather extended through to Monday afternoon so I thought I'd quickly wet a line after work at the Sandringham rock wall. Arrived at 5pm to find a few other folk had the same idea as there must of been about a dozen + other fishos scattered along the wall on both the inside and outside walls.. For me, I parked myself out all the way to the end as it was coming on low tide and the rocks at the end are a bit closer to the water line if I were to land anything.

2 x patto lines go out, 1 pillie, 1 squid and 1 x float line with a small whole squid.... and during the next 2 and a bit hours I mixed it around a bit to see if I could tempt anything. End result one small 20cm pinkie... and back he went for another day. So yeah, started out a nice Summery session, as the light faded I called it quits, and the thunderstorm rolled in 5 minutes after I had packed up and made it to the car. Nice timing :-)

Side note, 2 fellas running half a dozen lines between them at the turn point on the breakwall looked to have a few largeish salmon, probably around the 35cm+ mark.

Nice report mate.
I have caught some nice solid pinkies in the 50s from the end there and heard of some massive ones been landed.
Hopefully some more luck next time.
Cheers :thumbsup:
