I was given the day off today at 4 PM yesterday so wifey couldn't make plans so I thought I would go for a fish. This is the first time I have been out since the trip to Peel. Conditions were not ideal, was fairly windy which limited my options, tide was just on high and was turning as I got there.

Went to my usual spot at the Logan and tried a little creek that is a dead end at low tide where I managed a little flattie about 15cms fairly quickly. Drifted along with the tide throwing at likely looking spots until I came across this one snag where I thought, if Adam Royter were here with me he would be wetting his pants with excitement over that snag. I have never been successful at catching bream on soft plastics. I managed two about three years ago and that is all that I have caught. So I cast in next to the snag and slowly worked the SP back to the kayak. I felt a touch and then nothing felt another touch on the next lift of the rod but didn't take it, last lift and I was on. Didn't fight all that much and was in the yak in no time, few quick photos and released. I was surprised with how many goes it had at the SP. It measured 28.5cms.

Unluckily that was all I caught for the duration of the day. Got out on a sandbank and cast into a deeper channel. Got about 6 hits but no hook ups. Had a bream follow the SP right to my feet, standing in about 40cms water.

While waiting for the kayak to dry back at the ramp had about 20 mins of casting for a flounder. Left and came home.

All in all a good day and stoked to have actually targeted a snag for a bream and caught one!!!

Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish.

Great Wayne, a bold bank like the pic is a cert to have jacks sniffing around also as the weather warms.
