Palmy Sunday

Postby avon7 » Sun Feb 19, 2012 7:12 pm

Ive had 4 trips out of Palm Beach so far and until today, not much success, however I have been learning a little bit each time with allot of help from Carnster and the Palmy Army. Even a gold fish can learn and I knew with perseverance my time would come.
Finally today things went my way and I ended up with a couple of spotties. Many thanks especially to Carnster for all the helpful advice and encouragement.
Its great to finally get a couple of fish in the hatch..

congrats Rob, yeah good times atm. The secret is the black speedos, secret pillie rigs and a bit of mojo! Paddled out in the dark this morn and missed 2 straight away. Then missed another and a few seconds later hooked up and landed a spot before paddling back in for an early start to work.
