Another Good Day Out
Bit of a belated report, but between a new bubs and starting a new job, has taken a bit of time to get around to writing.
After heading out a few weeks prior just before bubs came along, me and the old man ventured out a bit further than we normally did off mandurah and got stuck into some dhu and sambos.
Well, Friday week ago for another shot. Forecast was about 9knots and 2m of swell, so we went for the 40km trek out from Mandurah. Back to the same spot on the sounder and nothing. Second spot nothing. We sounded around for a bit and nothing really came up. Ended up pulling close tot he mark and just drifting around, at the casual pace of 0-0.5km/h :). When we came out previously there was a big blow up like some baitfish on the bottom in 2 spots, with large pickups above, presumably the dhus and sambos, and now was barely a flicker.
A sort time into the drift dad pulled up a nice size sgt baker for bait then a good size blackarse. Then I was on.
82cm and my now PB Dhu.
Kept trying to work the area now with plastics and the bait for anly a small bit of activity. Had a Nannygai come up, legal, but not really worth keeping, dad picked up a very good size blackarse on the placcy, his first fish on one and then I got a small pinky. We decided to head a couple hundred metres north and got a small patch on the screen, once we eventually lined up properly instantly dad was on, with another blackarse, and so was I.
Now a 62cm Dhu. So the BA went back and so did we, all done by 1pm, back at the ramp at 2:30.
Both the Dhu were caught on baker fillets, the rest on squid, and one fish on a placcy. Was a great day again!
Definatley have some faith in the metro fishing now, was really starting to miss coral bay!!!
