some new ground

some new ground

went out on sunday to find some new spots with no decky no pressure to bring home fish, started out about a mile from a spot in the 60ies first couple of drops nothing but looked good moved on, next drop lost a cracker went back slightly off the mark and hooked up again and dropped it dam! kept moving 2 more drops good ground but no fish, next drop got this bad boy having worked nights called it quits at 12o'clock so there was a success. those sea anchors from ryan are great better than using 2 cheers

great fish there boss must of been nice to be able to take your time finding spots and not having the deckie looking over your shoulder saying this looks good, look whats that on the sounder, look theres fish there, can i drop now and the most annoying one of all come on skipper put us on the fish. Only trouble of going out alone is theres noone to get u the cold beer out the esky after u pull in the big one. Where do u fish north or south. well done again


Play hard fish harder
