Big Dhu jigged on PE2

Big Dhu jigged on PE2

Best dhu for me for a while on jig. Went hard on my little PE2 outfit. Released to hopefully live and make more little dhuies, I try and release any over 800mm. We got 2 keepers in the 600's as well, perfect eating size.

Cracking day, we sat on 26-30 knots all day.

Unfortunately this was the one released. The hook had not penetrated the eyeball, and came out OK, but definitely not ideal. But it had more chance of survival with a sore eye swimming strongly down on the release weight than swimming in my ice-box......

great to see it was released.. I also prefer to only keep them under 10kg as they are much nicer on the chew..

 John,

Yet to jig a Dhuie, caught them on plastics but not on jig.

Maybe need to persevere a bit more.

Nice release.
