First decent fish from the tinny

First decent fish from the tinny

With Fridays weather looking so good, decided to make the most of it and try somewhere new. Got a couple of whiting not far past staggies then headed up the coast for a troll. Trolled some 5+ miles but no strikes. (a bit of bait around though).

Found the Gemini no probs, but no fish on the sounder. Worked a plastic blind for nothing, pulled the plastic up then saw a nice bit of red on the sounder so dropped back down and bang. Gave a nice fight on light line.

 unless you have another fish behind you and the sambo.Sorry my fault for not reading your post well enough you must have been talking about the couple of whiting.


So tell me have you got your info from years on the water or hours on the internet?

getting the bottom line final answer from a bunch of blokes that use false names and put smiley faces at the end of paragraphs is not the best place in the world to get the information you seek.
