Surface and Bottom

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.
