Spent two days doing chores and generally being a good husband so was credited with a 3 hour fishing window this morning :y:

Launched at 6.30am, dragged my new rapalah lure all the way to rough rock but had no luck, not sure if it's going deep enough.

First cast produced the fish of the day a nice 57cm snapper. I then hooked another good fish but unfortunately the line parted, school boy error of not checking the trace after the last fish :!:
It didn't really matter as the fishing was real good and I ended up with 7, two around the 50cm mark and the others in the 40's.

A quick paddle back to the beach and home by 9.30, excellent mornings fishing.

Strong work once again! I went across to flat point about 10. Kept a couple the best was42cms. Conditions stayed perfect up to about 1200 but the fishing slowed with the tide. Seems you timed the bite perfectly. Catch you out there one day perhaps. Ev
