Date: 10-08-2022 Time: 2100hrs Rod: Penn Slammer 10ft. Reel: CTS 12000 Spinning. Rig: Long Snood Bottom Feeder. Bait: Fresh Tamban (Herring)
Another night of short trip. Manage to jig some fresh bait before last light. Tide is on the way up and the current flow was smooth. Just about another half hour to go before full tide, the current started to change direction. I saw my rod tip rattle. I waited for it to bend then I strike hard. The fish quickly swim inward. When it almost surface up, it take a deep dive downward stripping some of the line out. I had to resurface it and saw it was a Threadfin. I steady the fish and use my rod to haul it up. Luckily it only hook on the side of the mouth and the hook part already had a tear opening. If I had delay, I might lost the fish.
