another lbg snapper to add to the list
The other day me and my mate went down to have a flick and to try for my first lb snapper.Conditions were calm near no wind the water was like glass and what a beutiful day it was to be out.Ive tried now for a couple of years for this moment in storms after storms and really windy weather to no avail.So i thought id try a different approach and try on a sunny day.
After a bit of a walk me and my mate got our rods set out and sat back to relax.after a little while my line started peeling of struck and was on this was a short fight and not what i was after it was just a rat of an eagle ray damn so i set it out again.About 20 mins after setting this time i saw a few hits and jokeingly said to my mate that looks like a snapper bite but after 5 mins nothing then as i was about to grab more bait and re bait it took of one quik 4-5 second run then silent.I then grabbed my rod and started to wind the slack it felt like nothing on so i started to reel it in then i felt weight but no headshakes . So i thought another ray as i got it in closer all it did was dive with no headshakes damn i was thinking then i managed to get it up in veiw .Yes i started yelling finally and i was going to my mate gaff it gaff it he took one swing and it was mine. All in an hours fishing so many theorys i had heard blown right out the window.
It went 90cm estimating 6.5 to 7 kg as didnt have scales but felt hefty for its size here are some pics
to fish or not to fish is that even an option?
