Finally An Offshore Pinky

I still haven't nailed a size pinkie beyond the 3 Mile usually getting plagued by 45cm models. Reckon I've lost a couple by them swimming at the boat and shaking the hook though.

Headed out on a solo mission yesterday at lunchtime to explore that lump I marked last fortnight in the 30s and the bite was disappointing slow. Drifted off the lump and was getting a couple of good hits on the drift bait rig while I was setting up my jig and pulled up a small pinky over ground showing not much at all.

Another drift and nailed a 320 Blackarse and next drift not even a bite but  kept the drift going and hit that rubble again and my rod bent over and took off. Head shakes galore and this time I was ready to wind hard when he swam up. After a few good runs I had the gaff into my first offshore pink.

Now where are those baldies at!

Cracking Unc, still a lot to

Cracking Unc, still a lot to learn and still yet to catch a 10kg+ dhu but it's nice to be bagging out some trips rather than blanking out most trips. I might even have to change my signature soon.

 Those old schools beats have got me dancing in bed this morning Frosty . The only difference between then and now is it feels like my brains not oozing out my ears !
