A bit of likely looking chop had my beedy eye being cast towards an afternoon crack at the Rickett's teahouse pinkie's yesterday, twas a day off after all. The pinkie patches I found were in the 35-40cm ballpark, which come in at great BBQ size for my tastes. A late chat to a friendly boatie also informed some 45-50cm specimens were being picked off about half a km away, but by the time I had the goss it was on dusk so I didn't get to have a butchers at these. Anyways, a four bag including landing a double hook up on separate rods had given me a nice little session...no record breakers but some action all the same. A five bag was nearly on the cards, but I'm working on a "Catch, drop, grab, grab, splash, oh shit, and release" technique which I'll share once mastered.D.

Hiya Occy, Thanks mate. The camera is a Kodak DX 7590 (not waterproof) and gets a double dry bag routine, and I carry a towel to wipe me hands off. Re the dog shit, I've moved my launch to the Beau Yacht Club which gets me straight from the car park onto the beach (no grassy foreshore to negotiate). There also seems to be less frangers in this car park as it's a bit more open. Hoit's heading up the yakker's union to look after us with Parks...he's a good fella that Hoit (even with those skinny chicken legs) :wink: :D

Any hints on the above technique I'll be happy to pass on, being a past master of that approach; my immediate tip is with quality fish like that going back in, upgrade the language level considerably :wink:

Great fish there Poddy - well done. What type of lure is that in the pic? - and were they all caught on lures? Again, well done.

Hey Poddy theres nothing wrong with chicken legs :!: Sharks don't like em either :idea: :D

Were all the pinks caught on hard body, or did the masters kind words give you a few ideas about silver whiting :?: :p Or ideas about plastics perhaps from the other Mangoe greats???

Milt,

Great work again Poddy, you're like the pied piper of the point pinkies :shock: I can only imagine where the sound of your "pipe" originates from :lol:

Poddy, I'm concerned that you keep sneaking out mid-week so you can keep your proven HB technique a secret. :p

I have not had a touch on my HB at Ricketts in my last 6 trips. :? I suspect my eagerness to get to my marks to flick the SP's has something to do with it.

Well done on another great effort on the HB's. Did I spot the Storm in one photo or was it the famous Mann's Grey Ghost.

Regards
Grant

Thanks for the commentary gents :D The pinkies were all on the trolled Storm Deep Thunderstcicks (9cm), I've pretty much been using them exclusivley of late and my little Mann's lures maybe becoming like a woman scorned. Fisher the Thundersticks are these guys



and seem to be a match for the baitfish getting about in Port Phillip. RodL took this pic last weekend

I've also noticed some of the winter pinkies have been having a feed of crabs.

Gotta love the midweek sneak Hoit, I reckon if ya get a bit of chop happening a couple of lures out back will get a hit....but if it's calm ya may as well take the knitting :D

Top work, again! Poddy.

Where can we procure ourselves some of these Thundersticks?

I used to grab em from Ray's Outdoors, but they don't want to sell them anymore :roll: Maybe JV Marine might be worth a call, or an internet tackle supplier :?: If anyone comes across a source for Walleye or Silver Metallic/Black 9cm Deep Thundersticks made by Storm I'd be interested in a few. I don't think they should be too hard totrack down. By the way, why aren't ya out fishing Kevin :?:

At last I have caught a pinkie on a HB. I had stopped trolling at Ricketts to enjoy the Penguins that had surrounded my kayak and then my rod doubles over. My first thought was sh!t I have hooked a Penguin :shock: Luckily it turned out to be a 39cm Pinkie. Later on I caught a 40cm Pinkie on a SP so it looks like SP's are still better. Sorry Poddy :p

Earlier on Jason & I caught up with Scott at Mornington. There were a few small flatties to be had (thanks for the Gulp Jason). And then I managed to catch an elusive red mullet.

Another great day on the water.

Regards
Grant
