I fished Hinze at the Western ramp last Saturday afteroon... Schools of bass congregating off the point (Pelican Point). Met a nice chap (in tinny with electric) there who landed a 47cm and 38cm (fork length) bass.. both released. They were nice and fat... One caught on soft plastic and other on Kokoda G-Vibe.
I didn't have any luck and as usual donated a lure to the Hinze fish gods.. this time my Ecogear crankbait. There were quite a few snags there but that's where the bass were hanging.
Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish.
