I finally managed to get out on Wednesday last for a couple of hours in the afternoon. I didnt expect much as the tide was falling and was pretty small but I went out anyway and picked up a few fish ….
First up was the ever hungry pollack.
These were followed a short time after by a nice little ballan. Then I managed to pick up one of my favourite rockfish the ever stunning corkwing. A nice enjoyable session on my break from work.
So I was off today and my card for the Lure Heaven species comp arrived this morning full details of this competition can be found on Lure
Heavens facebook page .
I decided first up would be the fish that had eluded me up until a couple of weeks ago the flounder I headed up and arrived at the mark to be greeted with glorious sunshine and crystal clear water.
I rigged up a little Big Hammer perch grub in rootbeer and began to fish nice and slowly with plenty of twitches, lifts and stops and after a few casts I was into my first fish.
A nice flounder just over 29cm back she went and I fished on for another few casts and another bite these flounder bites are so subtle ….
The fish were really game today with another few bites and a couple of dropped fish so I switched over to a power isome and second cast…
A new personal best flounder at 33cm which I am very pleased about So I fished on changing lures around from isome to grubs …
Another few flounder landed and a cracking little 2 hour session with over a dozen fish landed and almost the same amount lost. I have to say that I really enjoyed this particular session because the flounder had eluded me for so long.
Thats all for now, back out again tonight ….
