nightime success

9 posts in this topic

A combination of work and some other issues has seen very little fishing over the last few weeks,

With night shift back on the agenda short opportunities for fishing open up travelling to and from work and one morning the water looked to good to pass up a cast and sure enough lure hit the water and a pack of hungry bream came from nowhere and I got this reasonable specimen.

With some inspiration it was time to have a cast on the way to work, there's a section of water under lights beneath a bridge in my local system stopped in there to find bait everywhere put a cast in and was hit almost immediately

next cast and on again

watched the flattie rise up and take the lure

The bream kept hanging around as well with another decent fish coming

finally watched a monster flathead rise up for the lure gave it a pause and held on with anticipation only to watch a much smaller (although decent sized fish) race up and eat it literally at the big girls mouth

and that was the end of a feisty little session no monsters but some decent quality fish

fish were caught on ecogear sx40 and black magic bmax

thanks for reading

That last flattie in the pics looks around 40cm, yeah? If that's the little one that raced up, the big one it pipped must've been massive.

Nice report
