OFFSHORE FOR A DAY!

Spent a day chasing chromed speedsters on jigs not far offshore not long ago. It was a chance to put some new gear to good use and have fun with hard-fighting pelagics on super light gear. Rods bent and drags alight, no better way to spend a day!
 
Hot out of the oven, some new jigs from Xesta called the Slow Emotion Flap. These slow-style jigs are perfect for demersals but as we soon found out, pretty deadly on pelagics as well...

First Slow Emotion Flap victim was a stubborn Longfin Trevally, which put up a decent fight against the Majorcraft Giant Killing Slow Pitch Special rod...

Two drops later and the Slow Pitch Special Giant Killing keeled over, line peeled fast from the locked down spool and it was a few anxious moments as the fish made its bid for freedom...

A decent sized Diamond Trevally was the culprit. It went for the Xesta Slow Emotion Flap jig hard and got pinned after a few misses. Like all Diamonds they go super hard and it was a fight to savour...

Queenfish are a common visitor in these waters, and they love IMA Ro jigs much!

The IMA Ro scores another close cousin, the infamous Giant Trevally. Found in these waters too, except in not-so-giant models...

It was a tough mid day as we spent hours of inactivity due to a massive storm that swarmed us. As it died the first catch was this small Longfin Trevally which nailed the new Megabass Metal-X Agitate jig worked with the Evergreen Temujin 'Aerial Level Stroke' ultra light spin rod...

The fishing was tough post-rain but as the day drew to a close this nice Diamond Trevally on the ultra light Temujin 'Aerial Level Stroke' made up for the dismal day thus far...

The Megabass Metal-X Agitate claims another victim...

And yet another, with this frisky Queenie hitting the deck as a school moved in...

We ended the session with a few Queenies plucked from the school. They were great fun on the ultra light outfits and small jigs like these Jackall Bros Mametais...

FROGS ALIVE!

An opportunity to get down and dirty is hardly ignored. When the chance to do some heavy cover bashing for Common Snakehead arised we jumped at it. The explosive topwater takes are what keeps anglers hooked on this type of angling. Finding the right snags and precise lure placements are essential in this exercise and only adds to the challenge when going after these fish. Here's how it went...
 
It was a pre-dawn march. And the heavy downpour only made the trek muddier. Alas we could put clip on our snagless frogs as the sun rose. The games began...

Lengthy, heavy rods are required for this type of work, and you can't get much lighter and tougher than the new Dobyns Coalition Series baitcast specials...

Few casts in and a frog was hammered. The rod was dipped, then struck as the fish chomped down. The next few seconds were just a flurry of high rod work and crazy cranking. No inch could be given as the hooked fish would traverse logs, branches, and heavy weed on its way to our feet. It was a nice one and great capture on the Dobyns Coalition rod...

The big Evergreen Skirted Frog was attacked without hesitation, like with all Snakeheads it was taken deep...

Not far off the from place of the first capture, another Snakehead strikes and falls victim to some heavy-handed tactics...

Again it was the large Evergreen Skirted Frog which drew a response...

There was no shortage of smaller fish, and they liked the smaller offerings like the Viva Mazzy Frogs and such...

Mazzy Frogs have long been the lure of choice for local anglers. Its unique sinking ability and long casting make it the perfect tool for this type of work. Its lithe size ensure all fish it crosses path with will take a swipe at least...

New Evergreen Dry-Fit Tees - a great new addition to an already exhaustive line-up of fantastic products...

The Baby Frog by Kahara is another deadly lure for these cover-hugging Common Snakehead...

We struggled to find more big ones, but were kept busy by throwing Mazzy Frogs at smaller Snakehead...

Another Kahara Baby Frog victim...

As the day wore on the bite descreased but the Mazzy Frog continued to work on a few more fish...

The last one was a decent specimen and fun too on the light Evergreen Temujin 'Spider' outfit...

Mazzy Frog scores again, this one taken deep...
