after missing the Botany Bay and Balmoral trips...
I decided to hit the Parra at my usual spot (Empire Bay)
I got there at 11.15 to find a million boats on the water and another million waiting on the boat ramp.. :?
Conditions were great...no wind, partly cloudy and hot !!
Tide was rising and was eager to get in the water...
20 mts from the beach in about 3ft of water I drop 2 lures in. My fav SX-40 in red and black and a Deep Diving Chubby in red and gold.
As I grabbed the paddle to head off, a rod goes off :!: :?:
What ? the lure had just been floating there....no swim action at all and already a fish ? this is good
It was the start of a very productive session
in total: 14 bream (6 over 30cm), best 2 going 32 and 33cm. 4 Choppers and 7 medium flatties (30 to 40cm)
it all went quite at 1.30....top of the tide
was off the water by 2.15
the 30cm+ breams put on a hell of a fight.... heaps of line ripped off and 3 or 4 good runs before being netted. Is it a seasonal thing ? I've heard bream are more active and aggressive in summer. Is that right ?
