Quick lancelin tinny trip

On Friday after checking the weather I decided there was enough of a window to do a quick trip to Lancelin and take my 12 yr son out in the tinny for a demersal bash. We left home around 4 am and launched just after 6 heading out through the hole in the wall and making a beeline for an area I had fished previously in 26mts. We commenced the drift and his first drop with a 100gm jig came up solid but he dropped the fish.

We went back for a second drift and he again came up solid this time to his firt jig caught baldy

We continued to fish for the next couple of hours until the Southerly was cranking. We didn't manage a 4 fish bag out but did mange 3 nice baldies with Liam catching the bulk of them and Dad (me ) having a bad day and dropping any decent fish I hooked. All he Kept doing was throwing my own line back at me "that's why its called fishing and not catching".......Cheeky little shit

 hi mate , i had no marks when i went in OCT  and just went out to 34-36m and sounded around the first marked contours on the map and picked up 2 x 8-10kg dhus in the first 1/2 hr  i used to go inside the reef up half way to Wedge (about 5 mile North) then out beetween the close reefs and get dhus to 15kg in 10-14m of water a few years back in a dinghy .

 I fish out of Seabird with my boys, the oldest who's jigging mad. We have been working the mid 30's lately. I see the Pro cray boys are starting to drop lines of pots in closer so hoping next trip out to come accross a fresh line.
