Salmon Holes last weekend
After seeing the picture-gasm from albany posted on here the other week, we put in leave applications and took off friday. we headed down to Albany on thursday night for a fish friday morning at the Salmon holes.
We were at the holes about an hour before the feeding frenzy. At one stage we had 5 of us hooked up at the same time.
Was awesome to watch everyone ducking and diving, dancing (carefully) around on the rocks trying to keep their lines tangle free of the other boys.
We all reached our bag limits within the hour. with heaps of fish thrown back.
I tried every lure I had finally catching fish on some I paid alot for and never had any luck with .
In the end I rigged a banana with a couple of singles out the back for some fun and the salmon even hammered that!!
Unfortunately no hookups on the banana :(
My mate was very happy to have finally have caught a salmon on a bream rod with a popper. which was a milestone in his fishing career.
Went to Cheynes beach in the arvo and found some very bored looking fishermen with a bit of weed and not much happening at all. So we spent the arvo 4wd and getting to know the layout of the land a bit better for the next trip down.
Home Saturday morning with massive smiles. Great to finally see what a salmon run is all about!!!
