Skip skip !!!

 Snagged a day off which is a bit of a rarity these days with work!! 

So mrs dropped off da squids to school in the morn made up some 

lunch and we headed out the plan was to get into the gardies 

again !! Well all good havin a plan ??? Dropped anchor say 100m 

inside first reef Mindarie !! Berlyed and berlyed !! Nuthin no Gards 

or herring !!!! Pulled up anchor and shifted closer to the reef !! 

Started up berly trail still no gardies ?? Then had my float rig with

4lb Fluro for the gards got smashed !! Few minutes later up popped 

a good skip !! So cut off da float rigs !! Tied a soft plastic jig head 

and threaded up a coral prawn and she was on !! Dropped a heap 

of fish more than we landed been a while since I had shallow water

sesh on em !! Poor mrs hookd up a few times but didn't land one in 

the boat !! I showed why they we're pulling that hard they were 

opening up a big hole in the lips and if Tha angle changed the hook 

just dropped out !! Anyway good day with the babe and Better than work

 Good catch. Love a feed of fresh skippy.

When I take the kids skippy fishing they were losing heaps the same way, I swapped the hooks to 1/0 circles and know they nearly land every skippy.

Just a tip, not saying your mrs can't fish.

Cheers Choc.
