98 cm Dhu on PE2 jig

98 cm Dhu on PE2 jig

My PB demersal on PE2 jig. Very lucky not to be bricked several times. Went very hard and I was just lucky to have hooked it about 8m from the bottom and got a few good cranks on it before it went on several determined runs.

 

Went just over 98 cm but unfortunately was spent by the end of the fight.

 

Thanks for a great day out Till and Hoooked, just a shame the day was slow with the dirty 15-18 knot northerlies all day.

Mate, we tried about 10

Mate, we tried about 10 different spots during the day, very hard work with the fish generally not interested in jigs most of the day despite seeing good shows at most locations.

Ended up getting this one in the 50's west of Rotto.

Goodz, I only have 10 kg

Goodz, I only have 10 kg scales.......they managed to move the head a bit before they bottomed out....haha.

 

Doubt I will better that dhu on PE2 in a long time.......amazed I was not bricked as it took several good runs that would have easily got him back to his hole had it not been for the fast drift courtesy of the dirty northerly and Till's quick thinking to pull the sea anchor out to improve the fight angle to help raise him and get him away from the structure, I suspect it would have been goodnight Irene!

 probs was a bit quiet

Sun, 2012-01-22 19:53

 probs was a bit quiet yesterday but yeh you know why. fishing with john was good because it got me to use jigs all day and not resorting to bait when i wasnt getting hits. Learning to use jigs a bit more these days and giving them half a chance. cheers johnny and george :)
