Boom! I stacked It Into The Water!

Recommended Posts

G'day guys, what an eventful fishing session! 😃 I only wanted to go there and try to catch that big bass that dusted me in my previous attempt up at the lake at Parramatta.

The session got going when I decided to hit the shaded patches along the shoreline and came tight to the first bass of the day. Good little scrap from a feisty little fish which managed to spike me and release itself all in the same motion! It definitely went wrong there and it was a sign of (bad) things to come...

Shortly after, I got stuck into another model a bit further up. Another good specimen in close right at the end of a rocky drop but that was about as good at got before it turned bad...

What happened next, I tried to step onto the leading rock to release the fish and I had a big stack right into the water! Ouch! It was pretty funny in hindsight and luckily no one saw me haha. 😂

Luckily I was okay and able to continue the session!

I guess I'll just have to work on my releasing techniques for next time. Thanks for reading! 😎

What better than a bit of fishing and a swim at the same time? Lucky it wasn't the depths of Winter eh? Cheers bn

Hey Pete,

                 Great video. It’s good when you can laugh at yourself. I once went all the way in off the swimming fence at forty baskets.

 Cheers

Haha, reminds me of when I was a kid fishing at a place called Wildwood in Vic. Hooked a nice trout using a small bubble float with a grasshopper suspended a foot below it (killer rig) fish took it but didn't notice the broken guide. Line caught on it and broke. So I see a float bob bob bob away out into the pool in the river/creek (upper reaches of the  maribyrnong) Am I gonna watch it go away? No way, I dive in, grab the float and line and with each pull or lunge of the trout I stretch my arm out to take the shock. Few minutes later I land a 3 lb brown, good fish for that place and have this story to tell to this day. Getting wet for a fish is always worth it. Nobody saw me but I'll never forget that fish.

I can't think of anything better than that haha. I mean if it's so refreshing when done separately, you can imagine the benefits when they are done simultaneously!

That's awesome! I'd jump in for a few good fish lol. I've had something similar happen to me with a flathead but once the line snapped it just sat on the bottom and I was able to grab the braid and hand wind it in haha

Hey mate, great vid. I went to the same place to have a go at my first bass and managed to catch 3! They were all caught on really small paddle tail lures rigged wormless. Like you I also managed to slip into the water although that was trying free a bass that had wrapped itself around a branch. Thanks for the tip, give me a shout if you ever want a fishing buddy!
