Having today off I thought I’d give it a shake last night and headed up the seaway with dozen left over mullet from last trip.
Out go’s two lines and i start the waiting game. An hour in and the drag starts to tick over, not real fast just a couple of feet at a time… I quickly got the other line in and picked up the rod and could feel a bit of weight there… straight away I thought stingray and I wasn’t wrong, big prick of a thing. His weight and using the tide didn’t make life easy but I finally got him boat side, confirmed my first thought of a ray and cut the leader…
Right on high, around 9.30pm moved over to the pipe where there was another 6 boats and didn’t get a touch, I sounded over the pipe and could see schools of something, probable trevs but not takers.
After 30min the tide started to pick up again so moved back to my spot near the marina’s.
Just as I was thinking this is going to be another donut this guy dropped in to say hi and about 30 min later I pulled this cod out..
I really thought it was a big jack…bummer
