Damo the JINX!!!

    Recommended Posts

    I remembered Damo saying he had not caught a Snapper the other day.

    So as I was going out today - to a guaranteed,certified,you beaut spot my mate pulled a 28lber from the day before.

    Thought I'd ask Damo as he is going out to the wilds of Mt Gambier.

     

    Sure fire day,get on the Snaps,no worries........................ NOT!:eek:

     

    Perfect weather , a few boats there already ,best bait (phew it stunk!).

     

    One boat pulled up to the side and up they pull a nice 15/20lb Snapper - turns out it is the guy's first one. Did the right thing ,congratulated him and gave him a round of applause.

     

     

    They move away and then another boat pulls up. Oh did I mention we were not getting ANY bites

     

    This next boat sees a big fish coming in - on a very light rod - I reckon it was a 20lber.

    The bloke is ecstatic, takes photos,looks at us for the expected applause ( which he gets), holds huge fish up, calls all his mates and cannot stop grinning.

     

     

    I'm fine............. ish.

     

    Watched a boat collide with another one ,everyone OK fortunately.

     

    We kept pulling in Slimy Mackerel which were soon converted into bait or Berley.

     

    Did I mention we were not getting ANY bites??:arghh:

     

     

    The bloke next to us then pulls up another biggie fish,

     

    Now I think everyone should have their fair share but I'm ready to start gnawing on the side of the boat.

     

    Did I mention we were not getting ANY bites??:arghh:

     

    I decide to move to the other side of this winning streak patch .....guess what??

     

    Did I mention we were not getting ANY bites??:arghh:

     

    Nearly 5 hours out there doing everything right and not a sausage or a Snapper.

     

    I've replayed this in my mind and cannot believe it.

     

    The other boats were not in our berley trail.

     

    So I can only think "Someone" is a Jinx!!!

     

    Grr!!!

     

    Had a good day out really,good weather ,good company.

    Never mind, Mrs Tyke's turn on Thursday, she has never caught a Snapper either.

    No more invitations for me then :sad:. Like I told you yesterday I reckon you've been superimposing your head onto other peoples catches :biglaugh:. Photoshop's No.1 customer!

     

    I think if we were still out there now we'd still not have caught. That's fishing for you. Good day out though.

    I went into Angler's Choice today and spoke to Scott. He had the same result as us and stayed out until 1130pm! He reckons he burleyed 60 slimies, 4 burley blocks and still no bites and put it down to the men in grey suits scaring all the snaps away. So we'll be waiting for his mates photos a while yet, cocky git :biglaugh:

    I'm more of a Melon man myself.

     

    I'll be trying harder than ever tomorrow for the snaps.

    I've a couple of less well known spots up my sleeve. Just hope Mrs Tyke can stand the longer journey:cute:
