boat session

Recommended Posts

Got out on the river yesterday with a mate on his boat. The weather was beautiful a nice clear warm winter's day. We headed straight up river casting snags with hardbodies for atleast an hour we didn't even get a follow, tried different lures deep shallow changed sizes and colours for zip. When we came up to a mud bank resorted to a soft plastic and second cast it was eaten, a very subtle take but once it loaded up felt like a decent fish

A nice 30's bream to start the day

we wroked our way downriver catching a few tiny flathead with a bream thrown in every now and then

not overly big but they fought really hard

We made the decision to head for the oyster racks hopefully to find some bluelips

didn't take long for a hit new straight away it wasn't a bream

The racks weren't firing but after a few good casts the fish started coming

they pack a punch on the racks these guys really went hard

spotted a couple of bream feeding in the middle so did a suicide cast into the middle of the rack plastic was eaten instantly had to literally rip the fish into the air before it knew what was going on but managed to pull it off

we ended up landing quite a few bream between us and pulled the hooks on many more on the racks but if you don't fish a tight drag they'll never come out 

all fish released bar the flathead which found his way to the frypan

cheers for reading

Looks like a good session Dave - bream and oyster racks definitely test your nerve and your skill!! If I can manage to swerve an OS work trip in the last week of June, I'm planning to spend a few days on the oyster leases on Camden Haven River.

if you're feeling really bold "cranka crabs" are dynamite on the leases just expensive when the fish refuse to give them back

Yeah, I don't keep Cranka Crabs at my place anymore, I just let them hang out with the bream.

Bream, oyster leases, expensive lures - thats going to end bad most of the time - although I think fish learn faster than fisherman ( or at least me) as I keep going back for more pain.
