We continue Downunder with a fish that is as mystical as they are elusive, and elusive they prove to be as we spend days and nights attempting to score a hit. Much time and effort was spent chasing these 'fins and when we finally hit paydirt the feelings were indescribable. Here's the journey...
|3am starts were not out of the question when chasing these fish. As a consolation the sights were impressive and solidarity consumes you...|
|Most mornings ended with nought in the bay so we chased some other species as well, like some ever-present Spotted Spanish Mackeral, which were easy targets on the effective IMA Gun Peki jigs...|
|Losses were high against these toothy speedsters but it was a chance everyone was willing to take...|
|They weren't big but on ultralight gear like our Evergreen Temujin 'Spiders' they sure were fun...|
|It fell for a brightly-coloured Jackall Ammonite Shad soft plastic. What a fantastic capture!|
|After a few long days we finally get a break and after a strong tussle we get colour on a beautiful specimen of the Threadfin Salmon. Elation set in as the Major Craft Arrival baitcast rod was laid down on deck...|
|Without hesitation, this DUO Tide Vib Score was sucked in. Everything held tight and the photo says it all...|
|The DUO Bay Ruf vibe is sucked deep like the earlier fish and the light hooks did its job well to hold fast...|
|Suddenly the sunsets were more spectacular as we made our way back home...|
