Bass Point Bonito Bag Out

Recommended Posts

Dropped off the little one for kindy and made my way to Bass Point for a quick session. Got there and there were a fair few people but managed to squeeze in with my 5 foot rod and flicked out a metal to be smashed on the first retrieve, followed by a second, third and fourth within 10 minutes. 

Bagged out in 30 minutes and made my way home for a late breakfast and a nap. Woke up just after 1 and made my way down again to christen my shore jigging rod. Managed to give it a good workout on more Bonito until 4 when the bite died down. 

Managed to feed the in-laws, parents and neighbours as well as release double the bag limit 😊

You'd think they'd learn by now but when I was talking with some of them they were clueless on bag limits..... They only knew size limits 🙄

Yep heaps of fun on 0.6 PE and 12lb trace 😁 Even more fun trying to explain why I kept jerking my rod tip when retrieving, guys with floats out kept looking at me thinking I'd hooked up every time I started jigging the lure after letting it fall 😅

I can assure you, lots know both the size and bag limits and ignore both, some even say they have their family in the car which then entitles them to multiple bag limits.
