Went for a short trip tonight and caught this small threadfin. It quietly took my bait and slack my line. It was when the tide was not moving but about to turn up. I saw the line slack and pickup the rod to strike. It didn’t struggle much. I wind it near to the jetty and ask my friend to get my squid net to scoop it up.
