Jewies off the jetty

Recommended Posts

Had a flick Sunday night.

 

Land based, Sydney Harbour.

 

Fished from 8:30pm through until midnight.

 

I managed 2, and dropped one.

 

Not the biggest, not the smallest.

 

Bait used with live yakkas (which were ESPECIALLY finicky...).

 

Smaller model fought very well - thought it was a much nicer fish than what eventuated - turns out it was foul hooked, hence me thinking it weighed a tonne.

 

Bigger model fight was odd, to say the least. Thought i had a big squid / octopus / cuttle on the end of my line, so played him super super light (thinking it wasn't actually hooked!). Got him to the pylons, see colour before he realises he is hooked. Few darting runs, and a few nervous moments later we got him up.

 

Happy days.

Nice work Mitchie, any Harbour Jewy is a good Jewy especially land based.

Nice fish.

I have had smaller jewies go ballistic on the line, and larger ones fight like big sooks. I have also had larger ones on a hand line that try to rip off your arms. :lol:

Nice session.

Well done.

Interesting to note  the deformity just behind the head on the larger fish.

I usually only see this deformity on bream and blackfish.

Hope you get plenty more jewfish in the future.

The big boy was well and truly gut hooked - perhaps that had something to do with the manner in which it fought?

 

Appreciate the kind words everyone.

Can’t help thinking that deformity comes from being caught in a gill net when younger.

I have had simillar thoughts also about this notching on fish.

No one really seems to know how it occurs.
