2 pinks, 2 drops, 2 easy!
went for a night fish out on the 3 mile on saturday night (10/5/14) hoping to get a few more snapper as myself and a few mates have been doing pretty well out there lately. The night started real slow which hasnt been the case for our last couple of trips and after being out there for around 3 hours with very little action the hopes of going in with a fish were looking dismal! My mate(Kyle) decided he would go have a lay down in the cab after fighting a massive ray and loosing half his rig he was pretty much ready to call it a night. I was starting to feel the same way and as i was fishing a floating bait all night with no luck i decided i might aswell chuck a bait on his rod and busted rig, pretty much just to keep busy and hold that hope of a last minute fish. After a while of not a touch my/kyles rod started peeling line at a rapid rate with something rather large. After a decent fight we had colour and pulled aboard my biggest pinky ive ever caught, measuring 90cms and around 8.5kgs i was absolutly stoked!!:) Kyle then decided he was up for fish again after i pulled that aboard so i had to hand his rod back and set up my other rod with a bottom bashing rig as quick as i could as the adrenalin was pumping and knowing he was going straight back down i was adament he was gonna get a hookup while i was standing there sorting out my other rod. Finally got a bait back in the water with Kyle still not having a touch i hit the bottom, put my rod in the rod holder, grabbed my beer for a well earned drink and then bang my rod was off again! Once again another nice pink of 5.5kgs came up to the boat, it definatly got the smiles back on our faces and after a long night it was time to come in!
