Fishing Shed

Last trip of the season, 22nd December, so with nothing much to do, built a fishing shed.
Reels re-strung. Lures sprayed to the UK fishes liking, not what a Japanese Bass would go for.. DRF working on the new rod. So many decent fish last year, so many new idea's to develope in just a  3 month break, but getting there.

Surprise amoungst the Bass

Out last night after a meeting run on late, very late. When I caught up with my partner he already had a 4 and  two 6 lbers. Fish first cast for me and steady adding to my tally, but then floored when my mate landed a 75.  Long cast, one turn of the handle and solid hook-up. Something wasn't right, but it was heavy so it was a bass. Lots of splashing in the shallows, crested in on a wave, bent to un-hook it with the headlight on low and something wasn't right.  6lb 9oz Sea-Trout not right. On the Orange Belly Pearl Zonk.  Finished the night with a good No of Bass to componsate.

60 cm Fish

Getting our fair share. 60cm plus fish most trips including this morning at 4am.
Excuse the quality, was very lowlight.

A few posts back I mentioned the damage a 7lb and a 10lb fish did to my Feed Shallow Mullet hooks last season.  Back on the 24th May at 3.30am  I clipped on a White FS retrieved from my box of doom, when fishing a mark my partner in crime stated just seconds earler could throw up a personal best that morning.  Three casts later it tried to oblige, the smash, the pause, the massive head-shakes and then the charge for freedom. I let it do as it wanted, very aware I hadn't changed the hooks on the FS. Three times I got the fish back, my partner tried mouthing it when I had it at his side, but the lure was across its mouth, so the only option was to walk it 100 yards back to the beach. Now my partner has had plently of doubles, and he put its weight well in excess of 12lb, more likely mid-teen, but he was good enough not to tell me that. Half-way back to the beach when the hooks straightened, he did.  It didnt make me feel any better.
