The Kraken and some more..

Post by purple5ive » Wed Nov 10, 2021 8:52 pm

First trip post lockdown I decided to chase the krakens.
Took my cousins out as well as none of them have been fishing in a long time, was a very slow day and covered quite a lot of water.
We ended up with 9 with 4 in the low 30s and 5 between 38 and 47 hoods.
I got my PB 47cm hood on the new yamashita neon bright jig in blue. Most others came on a custom pimped out 14T. The nine bright in red also accounted for a few decent squid.
Its been a whike since any of us landed some decent squid, so it was music to my ears hearing the emeraldas screaming!!!!!

Second trip post lockdown I found myself on my own, I usually never fish alone but I decided to take the opportunity and run with it as I had a very busy schedule ahead of me with family commitments..
This was my first trip out on the reds this season and doing it solo was a bit tricky for me.
I marked up some nice fish but they were hard to get going. I eventually managed to get a school fish to take a plastic. Few flathead and some just legal fish made up the rest of the 3 hours I had to fish.
