First bream on plastics

It was a sunny and calm day and not surprisingly our destination was completely crowded with fishermen and women wishing to try their luck. There did not seem to be much around apart from some small fish splashing around on the surface. My brother tried a small chrome lure and after a few casts was surprised to be hit by a near legal tailor. I tried to change over to plastics, a 2 inch sandworm, and I was able to hook up small tailor on every cast.

Soft Plastics session on Georges River

Atrocious weather for the last two weeks, and so I have not been able to get out for a decent fish of late. The rain was a bit on and off today, so being better safe than sorry we decided to have a quick session down under the Captain Cook’s bridge. I decided not to get my hands dirty on bait, so I gave the soft plastics a go. I recently bought a new pack of Berkley Gulp!

Tailor and Trevally (14-Sep-08)

Took time in lieu on Monday after a long week’s work and went to go fish with my brother and dad down at Clifton Gardens. The weather had a beautiful spring feel about it, but the wind was quite strong at about 20km/h winds. We started at about 10am but the action was dead. Not a single bait fish in sight. After waiting until about 2pm, the action finally picked up.

First catch on a soft plastic

Went for a quick fish down at Port Hacking and only brought squid jigs and soft plastics. Fairly new to the game of soft plastics but I have been very impressed with reading about the results of using them so I decided to give them a go myself. I bought a whole lot of different ones. I have two packs of Berkley Gulps and a few packs of Ecogear after a few recommendations from the guys down at BCF.
