barri YFT

awesome day out on the water yesterday! mackerel are like flies and the size of some of the YFT around make you shake thinking if you hook up to one of them they are going to make you hurt especially on the light gear.
had a good day in the tinny by myself again! got a feed of bottom fish then did a bit of trolling on the way home. ended up west of the mouth and just about to pull the lures in in about 13fthm and slam! 100m of line first run and I knew this was going to take a while! Half an hour later after having to make sure the fish was knackered due to no gaff on the boat I got it in! photo doesn't do the size justice but on the scales went 21.2kg bled! They are fat healthy and pigging out on baby flying fish and bait fish which are everywhere atm!
God I love this place, the variety of species being caught up here now is incredible!

I am, as I've said, merely competent. But in an age of incompetence, that makes me extraordinary.
