Out today with a surprize catch

 Got out today hitting the water at gentlemans hour of 8 am . Went out to target kgs to start and only managed 1 with a lot of pickers about. As the wind dropped we went out to the 40 mtr mark but not a lot biting at all. The water was a bit dirty even out there. Brenden nailed a nice cuttlue which ended up painting the boat and Sandy ,didnt think they would hold that much ink i t looked like about a litre sprayed everywhere. 

Apart from a few undersize pinks not much was happening then both Sandys rod and mine went nuts. Sandy managed to get a first bring up a double header of decent size salmon and with mine after loosing one down deep the second one on was going nuts jumping well out of the water dragging a big sinker with it . Sandy nailed a sambo and to finish it off i got a small gummy . Long day but was better than sitting at home .

Spike and bleed

Wed, 2019-04-24 07:23

 They are ok if you treat them properly, spike , bleed and into a slurry.

While catching then professionally we would all take one home each week and bring back the results next day, some recipes were fantastic yet other were not so good.

Soon learnt a few tricks like how to spike them properly, in the top of the head and back in a line towards its vent with a very sharpened philips screwdriver. This makes all the difference.
