3 Mile Skippy - Big Schools

A hastily arranged trip with zOOm to check out the 3 Mile yesterday arvo.  Skips were in abundance and the shred created a feeding frenzy at the boat.  Bagged out, and probably threw as many back over a couple of enjoyable hours.

The squid were taking the large mulies off the release clip, so we switched to jigs to catch a few. 

No big pinkies (hard to get the baits past the skips), and the Fisheries officers that checked us at Hillarys said that the pinkies had been scarce lately.

I rate skippy as a premium flesh bait, so made personal fillet packs for my future boat trips.  The frames will make Callum’s specialist beach shred for his “mulla missions”.  The squid has already been consumed by the family. 

Total use with no wastage, and a productive quick trip out.

They look like very good size

They would have put up a very good fight on light gear, very close to the kilo mark I would hazard a guess at.

 Well done mick! I was out on the yak on saturday off ocean reef and couldn't belive how many skippy were around everywhere. Did you spot any sambos? There were a few of those that i had to avoid. Top baits you have there too.
