one in a million chance of catching snapper

Postby Fish-cador » Sun May 13, 2018 12:27 pm

went out last night with a friend. It was windy so having a bit of slack line was expected . I noticed that one of my rods had its line piled up in the rocks. something must have dragged my terminal tackle towards my rod. Whatever it was, i was sure it was something with power as i was using 4oz sinker on snaggy area. I was unable to recover my line and it eventually broke as it was all tangled up with the barnacles. Fast forward 30 minutes, we packed up. As i was winding up the line from my other rod, i felt some weight. It was dead weight at first then i felt some movement. I thought it was banjo. Seconds later i saw the red shadow. I managed to land the fish. To my surprise, there were 2 sinkers and an extra set of snelled hooks dangling. Those were both my tackles. I then realised that the extra rig was from the line that broke earlier. The sinker that the fish was dragging around got tangled with my other mainline. I must be very fortunate last night. The only thing that held the fish was a single wrap between the sinker dropper and my main line. Very unlucky fish!

60 cm snapper! It's the biggest one on the photo.

I am buying lotto ticket!!!

Any other stories out there?
