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.
