Gday all , took the yak out for its first fish last week down in the Shoalhaven River, not far from the Nowra bridge. Got a nice flatty and a bream for me and the mrs for dinner which was great for the first trip out. Then i hooked onto something bloody huge as i was drifting along rigging up my second rod, i thought it was a snag at first, but then i picked up the rod and knew otherwise, it felt like a monster flatty, im not sure though, i got him right up under the kayak and i lost him before i got to see what he was. It was probably the bissest fish ive ever hooked, i was crapping my pants and so exited all at once . I was trying out a few old lures from my old mans tackle box, which hadnt been used in atleast five to six years. Ive always used bait but thought it was time for something different. Well i learnt a very valuble lesson. Replace any trebbles that dont look in the best nic, they had some rust on them but i didnt realise how much that would weaken them. Whatever i had hooked on had the whole lure in its gob and snapped a hook of each treble! . Checkout the pic attached.
