After the Storm Inshore Pinkies

Headed out inshore from Hillarys at 4pm on Wednesday after the storm wind dropped.  The swell had abated to about 2m and water clarity was “medium”.  The wind was about 5kn and conditions were excellent.

Set the Minn Kota spot lock on “broken ground” in 9m with a solid burley trail.  Lots of fish, and we landed and released 20 odd in a couple of hours.  We caught a few species with a wide range of size classes over a short period of time, and the inshore stock seems very healthy.

3 pinkies over 50cm.  Mark’s was 800mm and the others were around 550-600mm.  We released the bigger one and kept the “perfect eating size” fish.

 Cudos for releasing the big one.  Always good to see the big breeders released when you have a decent feed onboard.
