jurien mulla 1st's
Apologies firstly for lack of pics. stupidly left camera behind.
Anyhoo , It had been planned for some time to hit Jurien with a couple other family's , and tow up the boat, in the hope of 1 good day out.
Arrived friday and had 4 days there. I'd dropped by seasport tackle on sat , to get the weather update and to get a cheap jetty rod for mates kids.
We had some fun on the jetty catching a few littluns and giving the kids something to do on sat eve.
With sunday looking pretty good on the buoyweather report , It was decided that an earlyish start was in order , and hopefully get out wide to the back of the bank.
We arrived at the ramp sun morn with just another boat behind us. (turned out to be fisho ron and the boys) .
The guy I was taking out , hadn't done much fishing , and certainly hadn't caught anything decent , so it was my aim to get him onto a decent fish.
We headed off out into a bit of a lumpy confused sea to look for some likely ground. It took about an hour before we came across a likely looking spot with some good signs hanging around it.
Mate had bought an old rod along which really should have been consigned to the shed , an old rig still tied on from months ago. He had one drop with this but got caught up and snapped the whole rig off.
I then gave him my DJ200 and torsa 16n combo to use. We came around on the mark again and dropped.
His bait had barely touched the bottom when I heard him grunting away. turned around to see the rod fully loaded up. He was sweating a bit and swearing a lot. took him a few mins but got the fish off the bottom , and up it came.
Well , he scored fish of the day on first drop . A solid mulla which didn't have a hope of fitting into the esky. I did overcall the size for over 20kg , which surprisingly turned out to be only 14.5 for such a sizey looking fish. Couldn't wipe the smile off his face , and the shit slinging started soon after , until he started to get a bit green around the gills , and made the suggestion of heading in..
No way , not till I'd got onto a couple , so , numerous repeated drifts were done and jigs and plastics were sent down.
had to lighten up the jig to a 100gram caprice before I got hit , and bought up another very nice mulla.
Tried the 10 inch pink dildo's and once again , smashed by another good mulloway. (expensive fishing the dildo's eh, one or two fish and it's past it's best)
caught good amount of them on everything , along with pinkie's sambo's and a couple of unstoppables.
Came in early , but seems a few guys had the same idea.
Top trip , but def need to spend some more time up here
If I spent half as long fishing , as I do reading this bloody forum , I'd be twice the fisherman I am.
