A few bream..The Paddock's been fishing nicely - 40cm beauty

Postby arpie » Tue Apr 18, 2017 11:04 pm

Hi guys

Sneaking out over Easter - we had a bit of rain early on but it didn't deter the fish from biting! :wink:

A bit of surface action first up - with Umpa Poppers ....

This one was low 30s

Some threatening rain clouds ......

and minutes later .... BUCKETING - on & off, 4 times! :roll:
P4140010.jpg


Around the corner, I started tossing the Greedyguts around & was rewarded with a smaller bream
P4140012.jpg


Then, inside one of the leases - I hooked up on a Crackjack & got wrapped around an empty lease pole ..... I managed to retrieve the lure, after it hooked onto a pole & the fish straightened the hook, getting off!! I retied the lure & continued casting ..... with a couple more hits but no hookup. As I was leaving the lease, I cast back towards one of the racks & WHACK! I hook up! Immediately, it felt like a good fish ...... it was taking line & I got it back - it headed towards the lease & I struggled to get it back! I saw a big silver flash & assumed it was a big trevally (they LOVE the leases in the Paddock! :roll: ) At that point, I was almost resigned to losing it, as I'd been busted off on numerous trevally the week before! :beye: Slowly, it got closer to the yak - and finally, I realised it was a bream! A VERY NICE bream!

In the net, I let out a 'YES'!!
P4140016.jpg


It went 40cm & I reckon it would have been very close to 1kg in weight!! I really like the 'see thru' GGs and CJs :wink:
P4140019.jpg


A guy in a tinny was coming around the corner - earlier, I had cast a Topwater lure in between the leases & the braid had busted at the knot as I cast ... and I had no idea where the lure was! Knowing that it should float, I was searching for it - and he suggested I try further over, as he'd seen the splash as it had landed! Thanks to his direction, I was able to retrieve my Sammy!! :gu: He was targeting flatties, by casting grubs towards the lease fences ..... and getting a few. So, he saw me taking pics of the bream & said 'Worth a Photo?' and offered to come over & take a pic with me in it! I said YES PLEASE!

This was how shallow it was! :gu:

A fun day on the water - and not a flattie in sight! :lol: Such a change from the previous outings!

Tight lines,

cheers

.....I still hate Forster, but i always love your reports Roberta......

hahaha Please come back, Pete ....... I'd LOVE to hit the water with you! I've got a few spots I reckon we'd get some fish without sacrificing 20 lures ...... :wink:

Do you fly fish? Bring your fly rod! GREAT fun for bream! :gu: Hitting the water tomorrow with Rod & Michelle - hoping to put them both onto a bream here on fly! :wink: Where we are going - I've been busted off twice on fly and caught fish to 35cm.

....Good karma to to ol mate who helped you find your sanmy and took your piccy too.! May his casts be rewarded with fish!....

I'll see him round the racks again, I reckon - Darren! He lives in Newcastle & fishes for bream there - and has an onsite caravan at Tuncurry, and only fishes for flatties here!! Nice guy!!

Oh yeah - after retrieving the Crackjack off the pole in the lease - I lost it to a big fish 3 mins later! :blah: Luckily I had it's twin with me - which ended up landing me the 40cm!! :gu:

What a Cracker :cool:
Well done Roberta :wink:

Over Easter I chased Breambo's land based coming up with a few nice models (no pics-just CR).
The area I fished had lots of oyster/barnacle encrusted rocks, lost a few lures to nice bream, but a bit of fun!. :wink:
Cheers,
Kym

Some crackers in there!
Bream fishing can be an expensive pass time, I lose more lures in one bream session than I do in a season bass fishing!
Fresh is best, but I don't mind some salt every now and then!

For the Salt: Hobie Revo - 11
