Colorful evening on the water

 Headed out for a long overdue fish with Mark and Kev yesterday with the plan being to anchor and start a burley trail out to the back of rotto.

Things were looking good when a couple of XOS kingies started flashing in and out of the burley only a couple minutes after the anchor had been deployed. For a good half an hour or so they wouldn't touch the heavier gear no matter what we chucked at them so I flicked out a whole mulie on my 4k twinpower which got engulfed as soon as it hit the water in an epic subsurface take. To say I didnt stand a chance would've been an understatement after this brute dumped over half my spool before finding a bit of reef. Kev also hooked up at the same time on his heavier gear which went straight down into some gnarly country.


Things went quiet for a while after that rush with a few Skippy coming over the side until Kev boated a nice Blackarse at 43cm which I followed with my first harlequin going 60cm on the tape taken on fresh Shore Catch mullet.


Twas a great few hours on the water, we are all hanging for the weather and work schedules to line up again to hopefully get stuck into more good fish.
