Target Specie and your dream catch for summer 2012 / 2013

 I , for one, cannot wait till the water gets a bit warmer and we can get stretched a bit - this winter must now come to an end.

Aim / target specie for this summer:

Some tasters to get the spirit  going.

Just getting out there this summer will be great

Fri, 2012-08-31 15:49

After year of disability and some hefty work schedules I am looking forward to getting out there as much as I can without hobbling around all over the place. With the hip fixed I should be better in the swag so I can do some more serious after-dark efforts. Still a bit ginger but things are looking far more positive.

Good luck to the rest of you with you bucket lists.

Fri, 2012-08-31 17:56

 Having bought a boat last November that really hasnt provided me with any outings yet... but its back together and needs to be picked up when the dickhead decides to ring me!!! my Spring/Summer bucket list species is still a 60cm KG.... then

A sized Dhu on my own boat with grounds that Ive found myself... Ive got a month and a half to find it then Ill be trying out a heap of spots that look the goods on the charts and hopefully the new HDS10 will help me narrow things down for the KG during the ban

Id also love to crack that Cockburn sound snapper code... might take some hrs, but Im up for it

Who knows, may even get all this sorted just in time to take advaantage of the big ol Spaniards when they hit town... 

I just cant wait to get amongst it as the skipper, and Ill be asking for deckies too!! Also a big thanks to all the guys that have put up with me on their boats over the last 12 mnths.. Ive had a ball!!!

Whiting on popper/stickbait - not just one fish but to perfect the technique.

Mulloway on artificial - be it Hard body or soft plastic. Fish needs to crack a Metre to count.

Mullaway on lure would be really nice, but at this stage just a mullaway is a win

Would like to try herring or Tailor on Fly
