Went for a short trip this evening. When I cycle in to the jetty, a friend told me some wolf herring had been landed by anglers there this afternoon.
I quickly set up my tackles and cast out as only about one hours plus of day light left. I then jig some live bait and lower a cable car rig down.
Tide was going down at this hour and the current flow was smooth. I just finish my packet of dinner when I hear my reel screech. I saw my rod tip rattle but i didn’t strike as I thought it could be a gar fish taking the bait. If i strike too soon, the gar fish could have not swallow the bait and I will missed the fish.
I waited for a while then I saw a silver fish swimming just below the water surface. I know it had already hookup. I wind it in and it was a small wolf herring taking my bait before the day last light.
