shady friday 3/2/17

Post by tugger1 » Sat Feb 04, 2017 11:19 pm

Was planning to go Monday but the weather forecast & an impromptu day off compelled me to go Friday
Gentlemen's hours meant I launched at 0900 & decided to go up Tommicut looking for some high tide creek runoffs, turned out no coastal or creek runoffs so back to inside the mouth, 1st troll & this jumps on, 2 rods out & raining, didn't manage to stuff it up & landed it single handed.
had the place to myself, now that doesn't happen often.......
excuse the photo, I'm still learing how to use a selfie stick properly
As soon as the tide started getting some run, the breeze picked up & washed out any possibility of mouth trolling, Sampan was even rougher. pulled the pin & was home by 5
Only 8 trailers at the carpark & water up to the treeline, road ok but will chop up pretty quick
that was the only fish caught but it broke the drought I've had lately
early days yet
cheers
Geoff

8) great fish especially solo. A red tag would have been a nice ending

:D Well done nice fish

Can't complain about that
If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!

It wasn't today.
Driving down we seen 3 or 4 boats heading back up, little off for first thing in the morning.
Water was filthy when we got to the mouth, only one boat trying their best. We turned around flicked a few drams, but headed back to the tenon water.
Up at the minny barage there was tarpon rolling around. We fought a few bigger ones. But they were finiky with their bony mouths not looking up.
We ended up making our way above the 2 barage, and followed a fence line and ended up on shady fresh nothing much happening up there either. Although a little easier to get out, even tho the ramp was well under water.
I give it a month, then should go off. Although I said that a month ago
