PB Queenie

Post by Young_gun_fisho » Sat Sep 15, 2018 12:34 pm

Finally got a nice Queenie at Stokes Hill wharf right on the high tide. Rocked up and fished for twenty minutes for nothing, and my mate says "there's nothing here". I ignored him, instead moving over to another part of the bridge as I saw bait jumping. Dropped a chromie down and cranked it up, and right as it reached the surface a big Queenie came and just missed it. I quickly opened the bail and it hit the lure on the drop. I was on! The fish took off on a short but solid run, before I played it a bit and it started to tire and head for the pylons. I palmed the spool and gave it everything to stop it, praying to the fishing gods that I wouldn't be busted off. I wasn't luckily, and i managed to get it to the surface. Now I had to land it. Luckily, another fisherman had a wharf dilly, and after a few nervous tries we netted him. Thanks heaps if you ever end up reading this!
He went 85cm, and he was quite heavy. My mate then proceeded to catch a couple of small trevs and queenies before he was busted off by a huge Queenie in the pylons. I rubbed it in his face for the rest of the trip :D :mrgreen: :fu:

Just brilliant Young-gun . You might need to invest in a cliff gaff or dilly just in case no one around with one, hard to get the bigger fish up from that height.

Good Job :applause: :mrgreen:

Nice queenfish .... and excellent luck with the dilly from ol mate ...

Right place, right time. Well done thats a ripper especially from our heavily fished stokes hill wharf. Do you see many fish caught from the wrecks near the platform on your trips I always see people fishing there but have only seen them get sardines ?

This grappling hook system is what I've run for tricky areas up here. Like east pt or nightcliff cliff headlands. Jagging them in the gills is the best spot they wont fall off or rip out when they're thrashing on the way up. .... not too flash for releasing them though.

Thanks guys, yeah will definitely have to invest in a wharf gaff or dilly. Flickin4em, I caught this fish over near the car park on the waterfront side of the bridge (near the loading dock area), however I have been busted off by something off the platform, and my mate lost a big barracuda a while ago off it. Mostly small goldies and other small reefies which I see get caught around the wrecks, usually on squid or prawns. Not that productive for me. Other fishermen get most of their success on bigger stuff on live sardines though, and usually on the waterfront side of the bridge.
