So we are just taking advantage of it being in season, we managed another good bag of squid. It was again firing and didn’t take too long to get around 15. We also put some fresh strips of squid out in hope for something bigger and we managed to catch a legal bream. This one was near 30cm
The warm weather continued on to another fine summer day, but there weren’t any fish about. Some small baitfish eventually came in but no luck on catching anything bigger. I switched over to the squid jig and caught a mix of squid. There were 7 arrow squid and two Southern Calamari. You can tell the calamari apart by the beautiful green eyes. Currently in NSW there is no size limit on squid but a bag limit of 20. Squid make a great bait for catching snapper and bream by using strips.
The weather was fantastic and we could see a lot of surface action with the bubbling water suggesting something was chasing the baitfish. We loaded up some live baitfish and waited patiently. There was not much going on for a while until our reel took off! After a short fight and a couple of characteristic jumps, it was obvious that it was a bruiser Australian Salmon. It measured around the 75cm mark. Also caught a few squid that was to be used as bait for the next trip.
