Pink bream

 Headed out yesterday in hope of some inshore fun after the ugly weather, and i quickly realised that it was gonna be a tough day. The weather was a little sloppy and the bite was almost non existent with not even wrass hittin the placcies ( not sure weather the moon had anything to do with it ) but it was shut down. So after an hour of searching around i found a new little lump in 14m and set about flogging away with the placcie. Nothing hit the placcie so not satisfied i dropped a small jig which quickly resulted in a small dhu 48cm. After the release i set back up with a paddle tail placcie on the drift and as soon as i clicked the bail over it was smoking kicking up 3 gears before deciding to slow and turn a tense battle resulted in a solid 80cm pink being netted and in the cooler bag. The rest of the day was pretty slow with undersize fish and a few more wrass. A mate got a 60cm dhu and another mate bagged out on blackass. But it was slow going. Interestingly when i got home the pinkies gut was jam packed full of kelp and sand. Strange or normal?

 We saw heaps of fish on the sounder but they were very shy. I scored one nice pinky at 75cm, my bro got an undersized one and we were unlucky to miss a few good takes. Are you the guys that were setting up your kayaks at Two Rocks at first light?
