Solo run today

 Done a solo run today. Went out to the 40's and got smoked. Hopefully just a Sambo. A few squalls came through. So decided to play it safe, came into a lump in around 32 metres and got a Queenie on a jig, a 1st for me on the jig. Also got an undersized Dhu and Sambo, then moved in closer to the Whiting patch and pulled a few nice ones and a few bait sized ones. Enjoyable morning on the water.

Brock your spot on, thought I had won the battle but he had one last run and buried me. 

Russ yeah solo is a bit trickier but very rewarding 

Hey Andy the whiting bash, as simple as it is, it's still good fun. And sooo tasty!

 Absolutely mate! Ultra light gear as well. We get some really big fat bastards where we are so they are kept for eating and the smaller ones for bait.
