Another baby brindle bass was caught in the lagoon, this is excellent news as these highly endangered animals are choosing our estuarine system to breed in. These fish MUST be released they are protected by law. If you do not know what they look like, they look like a Rockcod but are yellow and black. The whales that was on the beach is now about 1km sea side on the main car park and still stinks, when we passed it we did not stop to see if crabs were eating it or for that matter fish.
Over the weekend fishing was slow but in saying that fish were caught the most notable reported was a Snub Nose or Longfin Pompano the fish was 37cm long (1.84kg ORI) and was tagged and released by Sechen and his son Kaylin well done guys. Some guys fished most of the night at Shangri La because using a drone and throw bait and left empty handed, after putting in so much time and effort it is heart breaking but hey that is what brings us back, I am sitting on 4 blanks in a row, my friend ever so politely suggested I gave up fishing and stay in the shop.
Friday and Saturday weather wise were good fishing days. Nanook went out on Saturday and boated a number of Tuna, well done to them. On Friday I went out on Chukka and to our horror we left the cords in the bakkie so while milling around the wreck are we managed a few slinger, we were joined briefly by Glow Worm after throwing some spoons he soon left. On our way to home reef we found a deep hole going from 8m to 15m back up to 8m in front of Doggies so we drifted over that and caught a lot of Kob and small Rockcod, we threw a lot back as they were little, Mark joined us and he and his crew were soon on the fish, the water was green and 20.3deg at the wreck it was 19deg and green. We headed back to watch the rugby but missed the first half as we got stuck on the ramp, the ramp is very soft as Dicks Construction are busy opening it up and doing a great job.
Next events.This weekend the Skiboat Club are hosting a Bottoms Fishing Comp.
