Cifton Springs 38CM Calamari - 8 June 2024

Post by Andrews » Tue Jun 11, 2024 7:37 pm

Hey all,

Punched out Saturday 8 June off Clifton Springs chasing a quick feed of calamari.
Condtions were a mix of constant light bands of rain paired with a cooler overcast day, water was clear and clean.

Headed out to 2m and first cast over some broken ground hooked into some calamari, then cast out again while dealing with the first squid and the rod buckled. Two nice squid within five minutes.

Kept fishing for another 20 without any luck, but enjoyed chatting to a few people including Tim!

Then moved to a special spot and thought I'd snagged up solid, tightened the drag and pulled like buggery, only for the weight to continue off the bottom. Woke up half way and buckled the rod before screaming off, took a bloody good effort to get it in the net and lift it in. Ran 38CM, and was the thickest I've caught in years!

That's a solid one.
You certainly got the feed you were chasing.

Was good to catch up for a chat, well done again landing the good squid on a slow day’s fishing.
