Got the opportunity for a quick fish this arvo after a 3 week break due to work commitments. Got down the beach about 4.10pm cast the big rod out with salt pilchard straight away and set in the rod holder. The surf was pretty big, but no wind and not much side current. Set about getting the smaller rod set up with a nice worm bait. Just as I was about to cast it out, I saw a few bumps on the big rod, so quickly swapped over, set the hooks and a few tingly minutes later had a nice salmon on the beach. Got him back in the suds quick smart, rigged up with another salted pillie and cast back out. Took up the little rod again and cast that out. 10mins later I notice a bit of attention on the big rod again so swap over, but missed whatever took the pillie. Tried a whole small squid this time and decided to leave the little rod in the holder. Almost as soon as the squid hit the water there was a a great take. After a solid little fight this brilliant bream was on the sand! Decided to keep the bream for dinner so into the shoulder bag. Another couple of casts with both rods produced another bream around 32cms which I kept as well, didn't take a snap as I was calling it quits and packing up. Left at 6pm to spend some quality time with the better half and the kids. Pretty pleased to score a couple of good fish after a few weeks off the beach. Best baits were pillies and squid, worm didn't get a touch! Have a great weekend all! Cheers.
