Dhu Drought Over

Set myself for a couple of days out this weekend and took the family to the whiting patch yesterday and pulled in a bunch of fat sandies. I reckon I caught 13 of the 16 and the kids need to pick their game up .

Left the boat hooked up and set out solo after my fishing mad 9y old pulled out because "we probably won't catch anything". I've been in a dhu drought since last year and have only managed mostly Blackarse and a baldie.

Hit my spot in the 30s and four drifts for not even a bite and I was already accepting defeat but I changed the driftline and pulled up two small dhus and after a few more drifts and the most subtle of bites I sunk the hooks and got that telltale fight and pulled up a nice 60cm model. Next drift I hooked into something a lot more solid and was wishing I had my son with his $15 licence on board but he sliced me off ready for another day.
