Pointloader twisted my rubber arm and went out for an early morning fish before work this morning.

On the water just after 6am and back an hour later with 6 in the bin. Passed Pointload, James and sk8e8 as I was heading back to the beach.

We basically replicated what Fletcher did this morning, 6 snaps each in about an hour on the water.
Difference was, we were in no rush to get to work and since it was soo flat and such a nice day stayed out for another 2 hours just enjoying the sunshine

Awesome day. The bite was hot for a little bit longer after Flech went in, then the 5kt wind dropped down to 0 along with the bite. Such a nice day, and came back in when the wind started picking up. Nicest weather I've paddled in for quite some time :!:

well done everyone :y:
Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.
