Date: 10-04-2018 Time: 1840hrs Rod: Penn Power stick 10ft. Reel: Shimano Torium 20 Rig: Cable car Bait: Live herring
Reach there around 1800hrs. Tide was on the way up. Current is smooth but water was choppy due to strong eastern wind. Bait fish is easily available. Set up two sets of tackles. Both on surface and bottom rig.
1840hrs, I saw one of my rod the tip rattle. I thought it is the work of a gar fish. So I didn’t strike but just watch. It rattle several time than I pickup and strike. Heavy at the end of the line. Wind back and this wolf herring surface.
Time: 1915hrs Rod: Penn Slammer 10.6ft white Reel: Daiwa Saltist 40 Rig: Long snood bottom feeder Bait: Dead herring
Today bottom bait was lasting. So I didn’t change often. When I pickup the rod and pump, I feel heavy at the end of the line. Slowly I wind back and I can feel some struggling. A small bamboo shark surface up. I lift it up unhook it, took a photo then release it back.
