Jurien Skips

Arrived with the old man yesterday and got a carton, some supplies and we were in the water by 2:30 with the mandatory pic for my brother who couldn't make it. With the swell pumping the outer reef we had no idea where to start looking so hit some drop offs just north of the lead line and anchored and burleyed up. As you can see in the pic they sell good burley up here.

Lots of undersize snapper and then something went a bit harder and the skippy had arrived and he had an awesome session even pulling out the bream rods for a bit of fun.

Remembering I had beer on board around dusk I took one sip and my floater was taken by something decent, I caught a glimpse of some big before it smoked me and I spent the next 10 minutes trying to pull a ray off the bottom but my PE2 rod was no match for it so I snapped off rather than snap my rod. Forearms are still burning

No snapper action by 6pm so we decided a pub meal was the go and  dropped my homemade oxy pots and headed in.
