Love the Sandy

Been  a few Sandy posts lately. One of my favourite fish and always keen to see how big people are getting them. I measure my biggest whiting on the bench and reckon anything over 310mm is a konker sandy. Generally lose a couple of mm after being in the scaling bag and the ice slurry. They where on the chew this morning with plenty around the magic 300 mm mark, never get sick of filleting a bag.

 Most important is to be quick when you get the bigger ones. They can be ravenous one drift, slow the next. Than shut down. Mustad size 6 ex long shank on a paternoster of 30 lb mono. Double headers are great fun on a small flicky 2500 size reel. Scaling bag into ice slurry, I generally cut the next morning for quality produce. My mums favourite fish to eat. I never get sick of cutting them.

 You are right about them

 You are right about them shutting down, a few times we've been on a hot bite go back and do the drift again on the same sand patch and they've literally shut down. I just spent all morning rigging up for them for a session soon hopefully. Nice bag by the way


Love the West!
