Long Tail Brown Stingray

Date: 31-05-2021 Time: 2300hrs Rod: Penn Slammer 10.6ft white. Reel: Shimano Torium 20

Rig: Long snood Bottom Feeder Bait: Fresh Tamban

Evening went for a short trip. Tide was going down but current flow was one way. Still bright so I use one set tackle on cable car rig with a live small rebok fish as bait. Caught a small queenie around 1850hrs and was released back after a quick photo.

After sky dark I concentrate on bottom bait. Tide turn up and current was smooth. Bait is not very lasting so changing bait is often. Around 2300hrs, I was about to pack up when suddenly my reel alarm scream. I strike and the fish took a long run out. After some struggle, I slowly wind it back. A long tail brown stingray surface up. Now Simon who is also here tonight already get my gaff ready. I ask him to hold the rod and I gaff it up. It weigh 9.2kg on the scale.
