Good weekend on the sails

Post by Nogood » Mon Apr 08, 2013 9:46 pm

Headed to Dundee Thursday night got in about midnight and setting the boat up for early start
With the boat back in at 7 and bit of a ruff ride out to sailcity we set the spead wee raise the first fish about 830 and two more in the hour with no hook up we didn't see fish for the rest of the day so we headed
Back in at about 330 to do a bit of bait catching at the ramp so with a bit of bread in the water we quickly had
about 30 little gars and mudlet in the bucket
Saturday saw us backed in and heading back to the city with gear out we worked the area for zip until about
1230 we got a double hook up and both fish tagged we worked the area for the raise of the day fish were coming up every 15/20 mins we managed two double hook ups for day all up we got 11 fish from 14 hooked fish then on Sunday we went 2 from 4 hooked up we only raised the 4 on Sunday a great weekend had by all and a lot beers too

That is an awesome effort. Weather doesn't look to bad, wait till that 200kg plus marlin hits one of those baits, do you think they are there?

Nice sails nogood :mrgreen:

Still yet to cross one off m fishing bucket list 8)
It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.

Give a man a fish, and he can eat for a day. But teach a man how to fish, and he'll be dead of mercury poisoning inside of three years.

“Fishing, with me, has always been an excuse to drink in the daytime”

"Soon after I embraced the sport of angling I became convinced that I should never be able to enjoy it if I had to rely on the cooperation of the fish."
