My friend wanted to fish tonight so I make a short trip to accompany him. I was late as I make some shopping before going down. I just grab a box of squid from my freezer to share with him.
Tide had just turning up and the current just moving but smooth. Casted out the tackle and we just sit around to chat.
By 10.25pm the current start to pick up faster. Then I heard my reel sounded and my rod tip bend. I pickup the rod and strike….heavy at the end but no struggle. I thought maybe the current had carry some rubbish and stuck on my line. It was only when the rig about to surface that I feel fish struggling. As it was very dark below the jetty, I ask my friend to shine some light. Notice it was a big size marine cat fish, I ask my friend to grab my line and haul it up.
