I woke at 6 went to wake my son he said he wasn’t feeling well so I did what all good fathers do I went fishing, I headed to queenscliff to troll a few lures. The shipping traffic was terrible every 20 mins the signs were good great marks on the sounder and birds busting up I was trolling an xrap 30 and a 20 I had a few hits then one stuck it was a bloody big salmon a few more hits the bang I am on again another salmon.
By know the number of boats had increased and it was difficult by myself luckily I have anautopilot which made things a little easier. The birds were busting up point Nepean side near Corsair rock just where the water changed from flat to 1.5 mt rollers I had to keep juggling the throttle at times I was going backwards.
Some one managed to run over one of my lures and I lost about 20 mt of braid I hope he checks his prop. I decided to give it away and drown some pilchards near swan bay.
I anchored up and got the burley going I picked up a few pinkies and some flathead and more banjos than a Kentucky bbq. Then a mate rang me for a chat as I was talking to him I get a run I keep talking all you could hear was screaming braid it wasn’t stopping I was giving a running commentary to my mate the ping no more line all I could hear was my mate laughing judging by the speed it took of it was an eagle ray.
Tomorrow I will give it a go off portarlington promised a few guys some flathead.
