Fishing line in the prop

 Last week, came back from a few days in Perth and thought better bait up the pots before the 7.30 cut off.

So we whizzed home, hooked up the boat and raced to the ramp, arriving at 6.30

In we go and off, few people on the finger jetty fishing and we passed maybe 20 meters away.

As we were going out Cam says "I think that blokes caught something"

We get out and jerk the first pot and there nylon on the pot rope which Cam keeps pulling, and pulling, and fkn pulling...

"Where does the other end go?"

Must have taken his entire spool 

Luckily the line protection worked a treat.

He was gone when we got back in, I was going to pass his line back to him.

Haha yeah, reminds me of one of our overnighters with my boys fishing for herring with not much luck.

Tell them to wind in and put it in gear

”a big fish just grabbed my bait!”

”you said it was wound in, did you see it!?”

”yes,      I think so....”

Tilt up outboard and...

  Well I'll admit that I didin't read that bit of fine print in the Rules:

 

When can I fish for rock lobster?

All year round. However, while there is no longer a season for catching rock lobster, you must not pull a pot or dive for rock lobster at any time either:

 

  • before 4.30 am or after 7.30 pm on any day during the period 15 October of any year to 31 March of the following year; or
  • at any time before 6.00 am or after 6.00 pm on any day during the period 1 April in any year to 14 October of the same year,
