Quick Midday Fish

For a number of reasons, I haven’t been fishing or reporting for a while.  Young Luke hassled me to finally go out on Sunday, and we left Hillarys at 11am to fish the wind change about 5 miles out (<5kn at 11am).

The bite was good and we had a nice bag by 12.30pm, when the SW wind really started to pick up. 

 

We also released a medium sambo, big leatherjacket, quite a few undersized pinkies, and a huge eagle ray.  A quick inshore stop to try for KGs on the way back yielded the herring.  All filleted up within a few hours of being caught.

Great conditions for the dingy before the wind, and quite a nice result for a 3-hour mission.

 Well done Mick!
You have been keeping a low profile!

Thanks for the note Rob, it is always good the hear from you.  Regarding the low profile it has been hard work for me and the family lately, for multiple reasons that I won’t go into, but it was nice to have my son actually want to head out on Sunday.  Even better that we got the return, and quite a surprise given the time of day.  I wrote the report to emphasise to members, as I have done previously, that you don’t have to go far to get quality fish and it’s worth giving it a crack.  The few times I have fished over the last year we have generally done pretty well, but I will certainly put more effort into getting out and writing reports in the future.  Cheers again.  Mick
