A couple of recent LRF sessions have yielded a few fish, though it’s still been hard work for the time of year. The fish just don’t seem to have established themselves in any numbers yet as in previous years at this time.
Anyway the first session saw me take my kids to a little pontoon the other night that is generally a great little venue for LRF. We managed a few Pollock between us during a dusk period in the tide, though the window and feeding spell was very small and there didn’t seem to be any real numbers of fish like there can be here.
The second session was the same story really, visited another normally fun little LRF venue which is the entrance to a harbour mouth where large groups of schoolies gather at the right stage of tide and we have had some hectic fishing here at times on the ultralight gear. Last night however it was again hard work. There were obviously some fish present as the first bite came just on the dot of the flow picking up but this proved to be a false indicator and the bites were few and far between though both myself and my mate did manage pound plus fish each which was nice. Didn’t get a picture of those one’s though as the light was fading by then and I didn’t want to spook any more potential fish with the flash as we were wading waist deep in the water and it had been hard enough work as it was ! So here’s a pic of the first fish, only a half pounder but fun nevertheless…
