Family day out in Powertail country

Post by ntfishn » Sat Apr 12, 2008 11:11 pm

Decided to head out with the wife, bub and a friend visiting from down South for a lash at jagging a Powertail.
Headed to a well known haunt and met up with 10 other boats, including 2 Pro Jewy boats getting ready for the night ahead.... (if you want the Co-ords send me a PM) :drinking1:
Anyway- rigged up the horse rods and got them down on the bottom. The wife 'Belin' dropped 2 good ones early when trying to juggle bub at the same time.... The bait pickers then came in and nearly skun us of bait... Caught a couple for punishment and gave them a swim on the hook.
Bang.... I was on, after a great session of back excercise I finally won the battle and the big silver bugger flapped about on the floor.... :clap:
Belin then made up for her bad start when her 30kg rod bent in half and jolted her into action - there were cries of a jew!- but luckily another beaut Powertail landed safely in the boat.....
Emma then landed her first fish ever - and what a memorable moment it was - the 10 pnd Powertail will remain etched in her thoughts forever. Emma didn't stop there - she soon followed in quick concession with another.....
With 4 big Powertails landed and safely released to fight another day we decided to head back to the harbour (had to go to work).... :fubird:
It was well worth the fuel money and the cost of the bait, I'll do it all again next week I hope....

Cheers

TIMBO... :mrgreen:
