Young Matt pooped into the shop and bought some drop shot on Saturday morning Porex Classic Shad Metallic Ayu 3” and when fishing in the lagoon and caught some nice fish, the biggest was a River Snapper over 2kg but no more than 3 kg some smaller ones, Kob and River Bream, he was working the water to the West of the Steel Bridge. I should get Matt to do a presentation as he is a very keen and successful artificial lure angler. Others were not so lucky and had to contend with juvenile fish pecking away at their bait but they are still fun to catch.
Spinners and Sand Sharks at all fishing spots however Doggies on Saturday was the place to be Chris managed 3 Ragged Tooth Sharks the biggest weighing 182 kg, these were caught on a drone and he lost a further one on his throw bait and on Sunday while spending family time on the beach he landed a nice size Giant Guitar Fish on his scratching stick so these fish are still here. Sardines as we all know are still a problem to source, however having ordered some on our Tuesday delivery and they did not come behold and low Adcan delivered some on Friday (are all sold out), it amazes to what lengths they go to keep us supplied with Sards these came from Sardinia in the Med, not as bloody as ours but work all the same as they are nice and oily. Young Ivan was back on the Kob again this time at Shangri la Beach he seems to be on a bit of a role, his biggest was 3.4 kg caught on his favorite bait, Sard Chokka combo.
Not a great weekend for game fish, Nanook managed a Tuna of 16 kg and Frigate got a pair of smaller ones although there were reports of a lot of Tuna activity at High Point it seems they were not very hungry. Sean on Wit Oliphant boated 2 very nice Kob but I am not sure what else.
