Friday bash

 So the decision was made to hit it Friday and the wind and weather gods were smiling. Was a weird current with the light winds going one one and the current the other but you soon adapt. The morning was slow until around 11 when I finally nailed a good fat Baldy that kept chasing my bait when I time the hit perfectly and hooked him up. Quite once again with lots of pickers so decided to rig up a small Wrasse rig to get a couple up for bait, well as Murphy's law will have it drop the line down on my lightest kit a couple of little nibble and whack! Big fish on size 3 hook and a bit of Occy the size of half a prawn. Anyway slowly but surely started to gain some ground on the big boy before he spat the hook (edit the feet stamping tantrum lol) Anyway the bugger was hungry and hit my other heavier set up, no get away on that one as I made sure the hooks were set. Don't you just love that first colour and the silver flash knowing you have a cranking Banger on. Just a smick over 10kg. Days Bag 2 Baldies, 2 Dhue and 5 crays Happy days!
