Whilst I am waiting for my new kayak to turn up I decided to have a trip with my mate on his sib and we ended up having a brilliant day! with loads and loads of fish showing!
As we hauled the engine and equipment up the beach and pumped up the boat we were gagging to get it and the weather looked absolutely perfect with no swell at all, like a millpond, flatter than a lake! until we found the underwater rocks! As we motored away from the populated beach spirits were high, conditions were perfect and it was all set in stone. As we reached our first spot is was very very shallow but we still managed 1 small schoolie bass before deciding to move a bit further out into deeper water. In the deeper water, it didn’t take long to bag the first Smoothounds on spider peeler crab and a few more bass on fresh dug local lugworm.
The day was going well we found shoals of bass and a good amount of hounds sat off on the rocks. After about a couple of bass in the first morning, my mate was into a good bite with a hard fight we were sure it was a bass due to the head shaking and when it showed it was a lovely legal bass.
