Steve’s Broadwater Report 09.06.11
Did a couple of hours on the Broady last night in search of some tailor, took a while to find them but once I did it was a fish a pass or cast. Started off prospecting by trolling some xraps and once I'd found them and pulled a few I pulled up and spun a popper but only managed one as the fish seemed to be hanging deep, tied on a squidgy and was back to a fish a cast, pulled the pin after around 2 doz fish in the 45-50cm range plus 1 lone squire, also hooked the mother of all hairtail which thankfully spat the hook at the boat as I was wondering how I could land it (I had severe misgivings about grabbing this fella) did get another 2 smaller versions and another Tailor on the troll home.
Beautiful night but chilly would be an understatement, only regret was leaving the fly gear at home (option for Saturday perhaps)
