|The Snapper continued
as the most prolific reef species and the overall quality was excellent.
Local angler Darren Schumacher (below left) boated this 4kg fish at Chardon's
Reef yesterday morning and as you can see he was a very happy man. Darren,
kitted out with a Wilson Live Fibre rod and an Alvey 725C reel, was on
a Cougar Too charter
Corrine Watts (above right) came into Davo's with a thumper Whiting on Sunday and at 550gm there wasn't much around to challenge it's position as top weight for the week. She was using a spin combo, 6lb line and live Yabby bait.
|If you were in the
right spot at the right time this week there were plenty of Bream and
Whiting to be had, especially in the bottom end of the system. Young Shannon
Lacey (below left) had a ball in the Frying Pan yesterday afternoon when
the bread and butter species were well and truly on the bite. Shannon
boated this 500gm Bream using a live Prawn as his draw card. He was kitted
out with a Silstar Powertip rod and a Shimano Baitrunner 3500 reel loaded
with 3kg line.
And while Shannon was into the Bream his good buddy Curtis Armstrong (above right) got into the Whiting with the 400gm fish he's holding being a good example of the average size. Like Shannon, Curtis was using live Prawn on a No.4 longshank hook. His outfit was a Shimano Bullwhip rod and a Daiwa Regal threadline reel loaded with 3kg line.
