Hi Guys, Hit Yaroomba this morning about 6.30. Who do I find in the carpark? Red Greg, nice, a bit of company for the day.
Easy launch, rig up, paddle, drift, paddle , drift. Slow old morning for a while, as the tide rose Greg started slaying the snapper, my plastic worked on a nice 55cm lipper but no snapper. No pickers around either, I was wondering whether my pillies would pull a bite at all when it all happened, spin rod goes off, that's no snapper, I start working on him when the overhead goes off, woohoo, all I could do was hold one while I slowly upped the drag on my tld to slow the other, he eased off so I worked the first one up, a nice 65cm Golden.
My first golden wohoo! fish stowed I pulled the overhead out and started to wind the next to slack line in, then the giant awoke, he was waiting on the bottom for me, Tru-turns well and truly embedded in that big blubbery mouth. I needed plenty of drag to lift him off the bottom, they pull hard those things. Other than jigging up 2 slimeys on a 6/o tru turn gang that was pretty much my morning.
Sorry, forgot to tell you about the wave I picked up over the bommie that deposited me right on the beach where my home made, busted arse, rusty wheels were waiting for me in the dunes or so I thought. Some bastard stole them. Thanks to Greg for coming and letting me use his trolley as well.
Cheers,
Dave.

Awesome stuff Dave. Those things go hard and that's a pretty good size for eating too.

Depending on the weekends forecast I might be free for a fish at some point. I'll keep ya posted.

Nice one guys. I was just near you on a stinky charter and we had 4 guys in a line down one side of the boat go down like dominoes to a school of the trevs.

"I'm on!"
"Me too!"
"Me three!"
"What the f*** is going on?? Me too!!!!"

:lol:
