The cooks go’s off!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

Managed to finally get out with Swano today, after many failed attempts due to weather, work, or family commitments. Possibly due to a curse by someone currently travelling 🤔

Anyway met Swano down at the cooks just before 6, and after a a bumpy start, battery for the motor wouldn’t crank the motor, but after getting the leads from the car, and jumping with the leccy batteries, we were off, and didn’t have any further dramas all day.

Swano was first on the board, with a nice little jew, followed up with a surprise kingy, fair to say he was pretty happy.

Got a little quite, so went to another spot chasing bream, and came up tight to what I first thought was a little bream, that was soon called as a trevor, then called for a small jew, until finally seen a kingy, great fun on a 1-3kg stick, 1000 reel and 6lb line.

For the next couple hours, we tussled with more kingys, and a few trevors.

Got smoked a few times with the kingys, bit like bringing a knife to a gun fight 😬

Anyway, top day out, and great to finally hear some drag sing.

Few pics of the day.

Cheers

Jonno

Great report Jonno on an awesome day.  

We might have got smoked a few times but we landed more than we lost and on the light gear it was an AWESOME session.

Just couldn't get one legal as they were all about 60 -63cm.  So all were released.

Thanks again for a great day out its been a long wait but sure was worth it.

Nahhhhh @nbdshroom  we just got back from a lap of Australia yesterday and looked at each other and said "let's go again" 😎
