Long weekend S Bend report

Hi Guys


Went up to S bend for my club fishing comp there was a couple of other clubs up there also with all anglers finding the conditions tough with most of the reliable spots weeded up to the eyeballs and not alot of fish on offer.

I fished the first morning befre the comp started for a few wobbygong and rays one of the fellas caught a cracker eagle ray 50kg+ estimated.  I also picked up a nice dart that morning but before the allocated comp start time so it was dispatched to the frying pan.

The first 24hrs of the comp was endless weed and no action, I caught up with a few members at lucys the following morning and a couple of tailor were all they had to show and morale was dropping.  I managed to also pull a tailor and a few undersize reef fish out of there and had a couple of biiger ones reef me.

I later went down to some beaches south of flat rocks and managed to get a nice 1.5kg greenback and another smaller one before the weed shut it down.

Next morning back to the same spot and got a bigger greenback who gilled and gutted came in at just under 2kg so up to about 2.5kg whole, I also managed a couple more tailor and a few nice dart, then tradgedy I dropped a pretty decent suspected mulloway after the big head shakes and a screaming run the hooks pulled or it somehow spat it.  My drag was unfortunately a bit tight form all the weed I had been dragging in and I couldnt back it off in time, lesson learnt!

I raced back to the weigh in to find that nobody had caught much more and I was able to take out the event.  I think I am gonna have another crack up there in a couple of weekends as I have unfinished business


Heres the few tailor I kept, gave the rest of the fish away to a few empty handed anglers

Congrats on the win there mate!


Couple of nice tailor


When asked by a non-fisherman 'how many fishing rods do you really need?' the correct answer is either:

n+1 (where n is the number of fishing rods you currently own); or

n-1 (where n is the number of fishing rods which would cause your significant other to dump you.

Brilliant Rig - well done - weed can be a bugger - I got introduced to the weed x faxtor a while ago - very tricky indeed!! Sounds like you had a blast anyway.
