Went out today with 2 of my mates @JamoDamo and Oliver to try and land a jewfish. We’ve persisted at this particular spot for months now with no luck on jews, only bicatch and eels, until this morning in the pouring rain.
We arrived at the spot at around 9:35am. We began to set up all of our gear as well as defrosting the yellowtail which we had planned on using for bait. After setting everything up I picked up my soft plastics rod and had a flick. Thought to myself “may as well do something while I wait for the bait to defrost”. Anyways about midway through the retrieve on the first cast
