Night time out wide
Well after months of sorting out the boat after it was stolen "Nigel" is back on the water!
I have taken him out a couple times now to put some hours on him which have resulted in some epic local mackie action and some decent baldies from the bottom...nothing that gets me horny though.
Well after a carefull 10 minutes planning my deckie and i decided to try out wide at night time. he was at mine last night at 11.30pm and by 2.15am i was drowning baits some 40km off lanclin.
Poor old deckie never got a bait in and called it a night in the sleeping bag just as the drift anchor went out.
Well the first drift resulted in a 12.7kg dhue and the next in an 11kg friend.
45 minutes later a had landed 6 dhues (smallest would have been 5kg) lost a cracker pinky then got sharked. Loosing that rig and a good for f^&k all deckie it was an easy decision to head home and try my luck with the Mrs.
Wind kicked a bit which made for a slow ride in but boat cleaned fish fillited and in bed just after 7am. quick 5 with the mrs rounded off an awesome adventure.
Dhuies BEWARE! Im back!
