saturday nights efforts including a supprize catch!! (photo added)
with the weather looking good troy, my mate whitey and myself decided to head out for a night fish.
got in the water about noon and headed out to the north side of rotto in the 40's looking for some dhu's before it got dark, well, after many spots tried with nothing coming over the side at all and nearing dark we decided to head in to a spot in 20mtrs and drop the pick down and start the burly going.
after 20 mins the first fish pulled over the side was a 63cm dhu, followed by another 2 after that,
a bit smaller than my keeping rule at 60cm, but well over 50cm, so they were returned.
from then on the dhu's went quiet and everything else started, pinky's galore with some keepers and alot of under size thrown back, 2 nice KG's, 2 bronzey's, 1 leapord shark (i think), skippys by the truckload, 3 port jacksons, dirty stinken eel, plus numerous other shit fish and a couple of decent squid.
only a few fish kept for the table and every thing else returned.
there were plenty of squid but they were very fussy and wouldnt chase the jig, so only managed the 2.
then troy being the jag ass prick he is, pull's this crayfish in on the bottom hook, bloody good size as well, spewin we couldnt keep it.
heres a pick of the cray(sorry about the pick it's of the phone) and ill put up some pics of the fish 2morow sometime.
a good night with lots of fish caught by all!! with a few jimmys washing it all down.
this is what was kept for the night
