Went out solo this morning off cable paddled to the usual spot and only a few small fish, decided to paddle across and fish the cliffs heading towards Delaware lots of small blue cod then a much bigger tug pulled like a steam train then dig head nods a while later this huge snapper pops up dropped in to Burnsco on way home to weigh came in at 24,3 lb , 84 cm length the new PB worth braving the cool breeze.

Crete had not fished that side for a while so decided to give it a go, you always welcome to come and I will show you the spot where I caught this beauty, very close in to the shore trying to get away from the pests.
