Launched from Moonee Beach this morning. Nothing much happened in the Creek to be honest. Saw a few stingrays and a few flaties but that was it. Nothing much happened until I hit the thin blue line on the GPS, that's the point past the bridge and further up the creek/river. There's a few shallow sections, but nice pools that work a treat if your stealthy around them.
Lots of little bream around structures, they're always fun to target as long as you put them back.
Got my first mangrove jack on a gulp!!! Not huge, but you've gotta start somewhere...and even at this size they pack a solid punch.
25cm of lead I tell you.
not sure what this was, but i followed it around for a couple of minutes. this fish was probably 3-4kg, 60-70cm long, rustic orange and looked like some sort of carp. it was also completely blind...scar tissue left eye and no real reaction to motion on right hand side. it was swimming slowly and constantly bumping into structures...this old brute has learned that if you run, when blind, it usually ends up hurting.. i tried to lure it with gulp, but it wasn't interested and thus came to the realisation that I'm a complete failure to the art of fishing, it's the only logical conclusion when you can't catch a disabled fish a rod's breath away from you.
Finished off with a nice flathead on a halco lure, i dub thee Gold member.
And lastly my flight plan...as I said, nothing much in the lower reaches.
Does any one have any idea of what that yellow disabled monstrosity was?
