2021 April 29 – Fishing with Tass and Phill

Again pilchard with Squid cocktail was the go and both running rig and paternoster where very successful.
Yesterday – Thursday – I left from Werribee around 10.30am to St Leonards with my friends Phill Hodgkinson and Tass Nidis. Because I wanted to fish the start of run in tide I din ot stop for squid session.
As we got there i anchored and we where loosing bait. It was a sign that we are on top of grass beds, so i made a 15m move (thanks to Malki Ary At Lone Star anchors and Mics Marine, we don’t have to break our back lifting the sucker). That move proved successful. It started strightaway and we managed to bag out in no time. At one stage i couldn’t put the bait fast enough as Tass and Phill where catching. Few times Tass managed double on the paternoster setup, and he couldn’t stop smiling. On the other hand Phill, who was ready to launch his boat prior my call, managed to get the patience trick, and he was hooking them one after another. All this time only one few Yakkas where landed. When i got home i checked the underwater video and very few Yakkas where under, but, thousands of Tommy Ruff.

I shot lots of video footage in the month of April, and i will have all the close ups of the bait and rigs i used to show. Most of the damage did the Reedy’s Rigs tinganoster single hook running rig, and no preference in the feather color. Saying that, Phill had one of his rods with him and full pocket of this rigs. We managed to loose one to baracouta.
The water – oh my god – glass on the way there, glass on the way out.
Just to mention, we did stop at the wreck on the way back – no much at all, at i did stop at 9m depth in front of Campbells cove – Donuts.
Cheers, happy fisherman
