Bobbin Head - Sunday 19/11

Well, after too long a time I had my first real fish in the Yak. Unfortunately the results favored the fish of Bobbin Head. :)

I was amazed how much more you can see being that close to the water. Though I didn’t catch anything I saw some huge bream in close to the rocks and under a few moored boats, I also found a couple of new spots to try for some squid.

Having mostly fished with bait I’m new to mostly lure fishing but I trolled an SX 40 and a CD 9 most of the time close into shore as the creek drops off to about 20 metres pretty quickly from shore. Had what felt like a few hits on the SX 40, but no serious takers.

It was a good first recon though and I can’t wait to get back out. Now to add to some of Shayne’s beginner observations I offer up the a few things I observed on my first (real) hit out:

· The faster the stinkboat pulls their skier, the loader they seem to play music.
· Women seem to scream on boats a lot (that might sound sexist – maybe they were blokes with very high pitched voices)
· When a school of baitfish start jumping out of the water right next to me, it’s a sure sign that my line is too tangled to cast.
· A neatly packed milk crate doesn’t necessarily mean the gear is accessible
· 3-mil nylon rope (cut too long) for rod leashes can be cheap and effective means of choking yourself if you're not careful. – I think all beginners should develop a leash management plan before venturing out.

That was just a warm up Fish – next time I’ll mean business! :evil:
