and the Spaniard I did get into the tinnie

This guy was a bit trickier to manoeuvre for a selfie with the gopro and I was pretty damn stoked, but here's the other metro mack that made my day!

WAZZA you have done it now

Thu, 2016-02-11 18:15

 

Unless you are telling porkies, me-thinks you have just invited every metro FW boaty to have a crack at your mackie spot. LOL, Only a wild guess at how the fishing brain works.

Your safe with me of course, going out Saturday for threadies and black jew. Doubt we will beat your herculian effort though !

Seriously good mackie out of a dinghy on your own though.  

Well done fishoholic !

 That's a great sized spaniard for metro, agree with Gilly. Both great pics but this one has its nose in front.

Thanks heaps!

Thu, 2016-02-11 20:32

 Thanks heaps for the kind words fellas!  No secret spot, just right place, right time. Went out to the same place the next 2 mornings for only a few bonito.

The spaniard was on my list of things to conquer in the tinnie and stoked to have done it so close to home.

A solid pinkie and a big mulla are next on the hit list.

 

Cheers & tight lines!

Mate that's an awesome capture!
A few years ago just north of Freo I was casting off one of the groynes in search of a salmon and had a spaniard come zooming in to the lure right in front of me! At the last second it took off in the other direction without the lure in it's mouth though. Was so shocked and couldn't believe what almost happened!

Fri, 2016-02-12 20:59

 I am driving my boat as support for a solo swimmer in tbe channel swim in two weeks time.  I wonder if the swimmers would mind me throwing a nice big shiney lure out while we putter along, to attract a nice big spanaird and an apex predetor or two?

 

May be not....
