gumbo and skate fest

Post by williwonder » Sun Apr 14, 2019 8:27 pm

Went out Saturday, due to the amount of minnow snapper inshore went 4 ks off Williamstown.

Picked up 7 skates before picking up a 4 Kg gummy on a log of fresh bait fish (mackeral)
Lost a substantial shark on the head (mack) using my light tackle. Fish last seen heading for the channel with a 3/0 hook in its face with my rod fully bent under the boat shedding line at will.
Heap of undersized flatties about, but this has been the last session in a month where i could keep a bait on to catch a decent fish.

Might have a crack over Easter with heavier gear.
