Dual Dhuies on Jig

 Headed out at lunchtime on Saturday, me, Den, TimVB and Scano. 

 

Charged out to the bank, but by 4.30 pm had not cauht a fish and it was looking grim with almost nothing on the sounder all day.......

 

Then we sounded a nice bit of low reef with some great arches hovering 5 m up.......all 4 of us hooked up immediately......finally!

 

Tim dropped his and Dens hooks broke, me and Scano landed ours, me on PE2 jig and Scano on PE1 jig, a bloody good effort on the noodle stick. 

 

Two dhuies on board, job done and likely only dhuies down there so not wanting to have to risk cathing another dhu we packed uo, cracked a few beers and headed home at 38 knots

 I’ll pay that one! Pity one is an ink image and not alive, they wouldn’t taste too nice like that! Hahaha

yeah cheers for a good day out John and co. The reasonable size dhu on pe1 was awesome fun!

and Ryan c, you’re on the money with that regulator comment. Reminds me of a fisherman’s oversized JetSki. Heaps of power and just loves sitting on 32-35 knots cruising speed.
