Great Start to Winter Luderick Project

Recommended Posts

I am grateful to Koalaboi and JamoDamo giving me some advice around March 25 re the Alvey Blackfish 455B reel I'd purchased and general set-up.  I usually fish out of a kayak but when it starts getting a bit cold prefer to revert to shore-based fishing.  This year I thought I would improve my black-fishing technique......and started off on a great footing with  pretty good catch on May 8  from a well known jetty in SansSouci.  Locals will see where it is from the photo - a popular spot close to the Taren Point bridge.  Mind you, I got lucky I think as it was literally the last cast, and no-one on the jetty was getting any excitement - I called out "one more cast" to my husband who was sitting up in the shade and starting to look a bit impatient. It was a bit of a tussle getting it in - he wanted to wrap me around the pylons....and young Pat came to my aid with the net.  First fish with my alley reel so pretty impressed and its a PB for me at 40cms!

Good work on pulling that out, the big tail blade gets them moving about.
