Hi All,
saw the post about threadys at shady so thought I'd give it a crack, haven't done too well there this year but what the hell
solo launched early & travelling down the muddy river through large schools of jelly fish wasn't too inspiring but pressed on.
Went to swim creek for an hour or so flicking, few barra feeding about but no hits
back to sampan & started long hours of trolling, was quite windy so was limited to the eastern bank as it was dirty water everywhere, didn't clean up until well after tide change & that's when a bite started, about 2 pm
first was a 9kg weighed blue salmon, biggest I have seen, gave a great fight running all over the place, interesting with the other line still out...
next was a 65cm chrome barra, fatally hooked in the lip so he went into the kill tank
next run I was retrieving a line, felt a bump 10m from the boat & a decent fish starts leaping around, managed to net her & measured up at 105cm & fat, thanks to the guys in the other boat for the photo, was easier than stuffing around with selfie stick & released for another day.
headed back up to the barrage to retrieve at 5pm, definitely tidal launching now.
plenty of bait around getting crashed by blue salmon all day.
have been doing better at Finniss & moyles not hard to get 100 barra in a couple of hours down that way, separate post coming, difference a good wet makes
didn't see any threadys but I'll take the metery....
cheers

That's a monster blue, didn't realise they got so big.
Well done on the solo metery too. Good effort, making me want to hit the water. Maybe next neaps.

cracker barra and bluey! Ern Grant's book says blue salmon grow huge, but I've never seen one bigger than that

Yep thats one of the biggest Blues I have seen. My mate got one 83cm which was a beauty. I reckon that one is bigger. Been a long time since I got a metre barra well done.
