Brief encounter


Recommended Posts

A small window of opportunity appeared today between dog-walking and dinner, so at 4.10pm I found myself at a favourite mark with two hours to catch a bass on a lure.

I decided to split the time between two marks a couple of hundred yards apart.

First cast a fish bumped the Hound Glide on lift-off, second cast a schoolie was hooked at long range and landed.

After an hour I'd had five: two on the Glide, two on a Zonk and one on a Red Gill Rascal 135mm behind a sinking bombarda (bombarda shop.com).

I moved to the second mark but didn't have a sniff, so returned to the first mark for the last 10 minutes and winkled out three more to the Zonk in short order.

These are pretty modest schoolies, but you can only catch what's in front of you, and with a strong cold wind and water temperature only 9.3C I was pleased to catch at all.

Tomorrow it's back to 'dirty bait' (crab and ragworm,) in the hope of an early gilt. PH
