Cockburn sound & Rotto
With the weather looking pretty good Saturday, we decided to try for a few squid in the morning then head out deeper looking for some bigger fish.
Squid were pretty easy to come by, once we found one we found a few, got 25 in about 2 hours or so. Quite a few cuttle fish about too!
a couple more
Bright colours were doing the damage, orange and pink being the most productive.
Moved out deeper once the wind had backed right off.
Was a little quiet to start with, i started with plastics and jigs, getting a few hits on the plastics but nothing real promising. The bait boys were just as quiet so at least it didnt look too bad
After a bit of moving around we found some fish as the day went on, HEAPS of swallow tail (not sure why but these guys always show up this time of year, just before winter?)
Found a little flare on one of my older lumps and managed 6 dhu's in 2 drifts.
First reasonable one to Carl
Second one was to me! (been a while since I'd caught a reasonable dhu, always put the deckies onto them but not myself!)
Managed a couple baldies and black ass too, nothign huge but easily legal
Picked up a couple small sambos, then scano got his arms stretched on PE3 by this guy. He was hoping it was the mother of all pinky's or dhu's as he'd not put anything in the esky at this stage and was copping a bit of flack over it! But we all knew what the result was going to be with the long rungs away from the boat.
Fish of the day to Sean
Pretty good conditions and sunset on the way in! all in all a good day on the water!
