Critter Hunt 19/1 around the jam jerrup area

Postby cheaterparts » Sun Jan 20, 2013 7:59 am

Its been a while since I was at Lang Lang/Jam Jerrup at least 3 or 4 weeks so it was time to chase some Flake on the hoof again.
There were a few guys from the Vyak site camping at Lang Lang caravan park but I wasn't staying over night.

So I had planed to launch about 8 am but was running a bit late I was on the water by 9
it didn't matter the tide was up quite high .As the wind was blowing SW and arond 8 Kts with an out going tide I thought it maybe a bit uncomfortable ( wind agaist tide )
so headed straight over to Palmers channel close to french island to get out of the wind
So an hour and a bit after lanching I was parked up and soaking baits , it was a slow trip across today pushing into an 8 kt or so head wind taking over an hour to do about 4 Km

There were a lot of small bites and a few lost baits untill the first action Eddie the eagle was on not a monster but still had a bit of fight in him
at the same time the other rod went off , of cause both these fish tangled up lines .
the second hook up I got in first a male gummy about 90 cm in lenth which was returned quickly to play with Eddie
and my realy good 99 cent 10-15 kg rod broke but still got the eagle ray to the yak

As I compete in the Mr Fishos Pairs comp and an eagle adds to our over all lenth and the beach being close that where I headed the eagle ray in tow
I landed and measured him at 106 long counting the tail - a handy extra meter on our comp

Image

after measuring it was back in the water for eddie and he swam off with no more damage than a dented pride

while on the beach a red outback was on its way over a little bloke from way over the west side of PPB - you know that place with nice sandy beachs and no mud

Image

I alway give this advice to the boat guys that is not to follow a kayaker in westernport and theres a good reason
another bit of advice for the non Mudbrother types is never trust a Mud brother standing on a Westernport beach Bretty ( off Vyak ) did today
when he saw me standing on fairly firm ground
its hard to see in the above pic but he got out of his yak and sunk to way past his knees and was pretty well covered in mud

Image

as you can see it wasn't any better getting off the beach ether the dropping tide ment we had to wade out a bit futher and of cause deeper mud

after getting back on the water I headed over to a channel near stockyard point that normaly produces on the last of the run out
I wasn't let down with a 108 cm keeper
then with the tide almost bottomed out I made a move back outside JJ for the first of the run in and picked up a 110 cm fish and a second
keeper

Image

it was still way to early to get back in at the ramp and the wind was getting up and I had a couple of keeper so I head back to LL carvan park
and had a drink with the crew , cleaned the fish and it was time to head off

I think most of the others got fish - I know that one landed 11 gummies and 2 elephants and a heap of under size schoolies we checked out the happy snaps on his go pro

another guy had a small snapper and had landed quite a few gummies

it sort of made my 3 gummies look like a slow day

so theres another day on the water and fresh flake in the fridge

I'm building a trailer atm my old ford sedan is rusting out fairly quickly and putting salt water on the roof every W/E isn't helping
I've picked up another old ford but a wagon so a trailer is looking the go to keep this car a bit longer
