Avoca, Quick Arvo Fish


Recommended Posts

Hi Raiders, I went for a quick bottom bash around the rocks this arvo, the wind had abated from about 40 knots down to 25knots, so it was still windy, anyway I had a few casts and couldn't get any bream or flatties but I did get a pregnant stingray which soon after I removed the hooks gave birth to its little ones right there in front of me, I'm a dad again Hah!, anyway with the help of COMMITTED (Matt) we got the new family back into the water. I scored a couple of salmon one of which was a monster, not so much in length but the thing was thick as and weighed a ton.

So that's it, no eating stuff today but I still had a fun 2 hours or so..

I can see the headline now ... "Ray helps ray deliver rays".

Please tell me you were singing ... "a little ray of sunshine ... " at the time. :074:

Another amazing report Ray!!! You never disappoint!

That's a thumper salmon too.

And of course, brilliant photos. :thumbup:

Cheers

I went for a walk around there about 4pm, must have just missed you. There were a few hardy souls out the front not having much luck. Was hoping to see your new "ice cleats" in action and ask where you got them.

How do you tell all the Ray "Junior's" apart? :biggrin2:

Hi Ray

Did you bleed and eat the salmon Ray? I quickly bled my salmon last week and put them on ice right away.

They were great little beer batter fillets and tasted good - bit of a misconception from the fishing community that you cant eat these fish

Thanks
