Herring Session on the Yak

Herring Session on the Yak

 Headed out on the yak for a few hours this evening in perfect conditions with a very light breeze blowing from the SE.

Ended up with a good bag of herring, wicked fun on one of Big John's pink 1/4oz bucktails. The one in the photo was the smallest of the lot by quite a bit but was the only one I took a photo of. Most were very solid, between 28 and 30cm.

Also got smoked by something big on a live herring that found the reef after a screaming run, my guess is a biiiig sambo.

 You're on a roll this week, Dylan.

Nice work catching various fish during the week.  Its what fishing is all about. No point catching big snapper all the time, let others do it!
