Marine Cat Fish

Date: 02-04-2013    Time: 9.45pm     Rod: Penn Power stick 10ft     Reel: Shimano Torium 20     Line: 30lbs braided join with 50lbs mono leader     Rig: Long snood bottom feeder      Bait: Cut greeneye squid strip (Frozen)

Went for a short trip….Main target is to catch squid…but did bring along a set of tackle to cast out. Current was slow today and initially bait was not lasting…Only when the tide turn that the bait was lasting. I use the left over bait from last saturday night trip.

Around 9.45pm…tide has turn up…I suddenly saw my line gone loose….Quickly I strike the rod…Heavy at the end…Easily wind in….Only when near the jetty that the fish fight back…by diving downward…

I surface it and it was a marine cat fish…..I use my hand to grab hold of my line n leader and pull it up…Estimate around 3kg..The fish ended up given to a angler there.
