Snaps & Tings.

    Recommended Posts

    Took a mate out yesterday on the Tub for a look around and hopefully a few fish.

     

    Fished an area that was a little experimental , this produced 12 nice King George Whiting over a steady period.

    Most caught by my friend Jim!

     

     

    Ended up going over to my favourite Snapper spot to have a try. Only half hearted as it was wrong time of day,tide and no one has seen Snapper in that area for a few weeks.

     

     

    How wrong could they be.

     

    Hooked onto four biggies, they took the bait so savagely we thought we were going to lose the rods!!

    Ended up with this lot below.

     

    Biggest fish was 10.45 Kilos or 23lbs old money.

    The biggest Snapper had his revenge before parting this mortal coil. I was attempting to weigh him when he "snapped" on my finger!

    Holy Hell - that hurt!! I think he has actually crushed the end of my finger.

     

    Some of the blood in the second photo is actually mine!

    Yeah, mullies from the beaches and jetties, I've seen the pics! BIG whiting from Port Mac marina if it's rough, also a few beaches. Just got to watch the swell down there. I'm sure I'll get to know where to go in my job ;) Will let you know any 'inside info'.

    It would be good to know some spots and try my luck down that way we used to go the other way up to yorks quite a bit.

    Wow, my dad is coming out in a few weeks and he's been asking about what bait to use - didn't know you had to use parts of your body:shocked:

     

    Hope your digit is better now, if not, pop and see us as Mrs C is a nurse now.

     

    Good fish there!

     

    Cooler

    See........... I put "everything" into my fishing.:cute:

     

    Try Squid,it's tougher and stops on the hook when you sling it out.

     

    Either small bits of tentacles (esp the two long ones called Candles)

    Or small strips of the hood cut to look like small white worms.

     

    The nail will be coming off at sometime I reckon!
