Cheers Lightning, I'll let u know how I go, did u catch any last night?

Was fishing with a mate in gale winds and on and off rain lol for not much ended up with a couple of pinkies 38 and 42 and a rock cod.


You should have stayed LB last night. Your spot was empty. We were fishing the low tide and very shallow water. At the turn of tide around 11pm we were unable to manage 2 rods each.

Great haul mate, I only managed the one snapper today but it went 70cm so I can't complain. Cheers!

I got out this arvo down at Welshpool, 15-20 knots and wind against tide. It wasn't pretty, and we only got a small gummy and no snapper.

Still, can't think of anything else I'd rather do on a Saturday.

That's what I was thinking the whole time ! Wind was against current on the bay during the morning too, absolutely hate it when lines are running under the boat. Luckily swayed to be in our favour during the afternoon.
Cheers
