LB Bluebone

 Have been managing to get in to some good fish land based around the cape here in Exmouth over the last couple of weekends. This one earns a spot on the brag board but I think..... could see this big boy sitting in a shallow hole about 10m from shore. I was fishing 30lb for spangoes mainly and was tossing up whether I should bother putting a bait in its face because I thought I had no chance of stopping it!


I chose to take a chance and after it sniffing around the bait for about a minute, it took it for pretty well one decent run straight for the horizon across the shallow reef. This run lasted for about 30 odd seconds before the fish largely gave in and I slowly pulled it back to the beach. 


Certainly got the heart racing and was pretty chuffed. Got a couple of spangoes also in about a 45 minute session so a decent morning!

BB bait

 Try using prawns or crabs that are tending not being fresh and getiing smelly and this will attract BB quite well.
