Outta practice and outta luck.

Been away from kayaking and fishing for a while now but missed it so much bought myself another hobie and got back on the water. Great to be out there again but 6 hours on the port hacking today and 0 fish. Was targeting bream , flicking little lures around the boats but couldn’t even get a nibble. Hopefully gonna bring some better news next time.

Great day out though. 😃

G'day MarkoFreto,

It's definitely like that some days! 6 hours on the water on the weekend for a local kayak meet up and I got 4 fish and dropped two. I won the Estuary Cod section with a 30.5cm fish. A bit embarrassing! Everyone found it tough. One decent Jack and two just legal Flatties for 15 or so yakkers over the morning. Conditions were rubbish and fishing was tough. That's fishing!

Good to see you back out enjoying it.

Yak PBs
Estuary Cod 50cm; Mangrove Jack 49cm; Barra 108cm; Flathead - dusky 62cm; Flathead - bartail 51cm; Flounder 28cm; Forktail Catfish 60cm; Bream 32cm, Sand whiting 30cm; Striped Butterfish/Scat 20cm; Barred Javelin 47cm; Bull Shark 80cm; Queenfish 103cm; Tarpon 60cm; Golden Perch 47cm; Estuary Perch 33cm; Saratoga 72cm; Leathery Grunter 43cm.
