So I gave Army bay go on Friday and heaps more happening than Browns bay. I paddle out to look for life on the sand, while picking up some macks on the way. There seem to be life everywhere on the sounder, so I anchor in about 10m of water. Heaps of schooling snapper around, my bait was lasting 10 seconds in the water and anything I caught was being followed up by small kingfish. All of sudden my line went off on my sabiki rod, whatever I had caught was pulling line. I manage to fight it to the surface and it was a very nice trev, but not having a net I manage to break the line while pulling it into the kayak I then fouled hooked a small kingie that manage to cut off my burley bag. And also pick up what looked to be a small shark.
After that I was running low on bait so paddled around looking for some more mackies, only to drop nearly every one I caught. Once I got a couple I drifted around with a bait out the back and softbait out the side. I manage to pick up a legal snapper and another shark, so decided to call it quits.
At a last minute I decided to head out on Sunday as well, with the weather looking good there was no reason not to, well painting the bathroom was a good reason, but I chose to ignore that. Like everyone else it was a slow days fishing. Could have been the amount of traffic on the water, didnâ€™t help that there were a bunch of idiots on jetski. At one point they were coming right at me and didnâ€™t turn till the last minute. Anyways another good day on the water and I didnâ€™t get burnt which is always a good thing. Next time I might try a mid week evening fish, just need to get my all round light sort. Just need some ideas where to mount one on my GT.
Go on then, tell us your stories...
