We dropped a nice gummy of 10kg's at Phillip island on Sunday at the 50m line. He took a silver whiting for bait we caught 3 dozen whiting around the 30 metre mark. But jeez that gummy looked mighty gracefull gliding around the side of the boat :shock:
In a way i'm glad the big fella got off, but part of me still thinks hmm yummy gummy best of luck this weekend.
Hi Grant, I hope patience is the key to not getting bashed up. If I feel ones still a bit green then a bit of a prod will send him back down to the bottom again for a few more rounds. Play out the battle under the water not in my lap. When he`s played right out, that is if they ever get dead tired, time a well placed couple of dongs on the snout and when he seems to settle quickly knife him at back of head to kill him off quickly. I don`t mind a few bruises but I don`t want him knocking me out! Steve.
The whole 'gummy out of a kayak' caper intigues me Steve, I'd love to join you one day but can't this weekend - I payed a few months ago (in full) to go to Mt Buller this weekend, to enjoy the snow that isn't there
One question I have, is your launch spot at Pt Leo a surf launch? We had a wee bit of excitement getting back in through the surf at Shoreham a few weeks ago, I'd imagine we could have been in some real strife with a few big gummys strapped to the gunnels
Hi Squidder, bad luck about the snow situation. Have a great time anyhow. I always leave a tailrope on till I get back on the beach. Losing a nice gummy in the surf after all that effort would be the pits. Steve.
