Young Pinky Master??

Caught up with a fellow Fishwrecked member on the water last Saturday.  I had exchanged a number of PMs with this member since before I moved over here and he has been very helpful in providing information that has improved our catch rate.  It was good to finally meet him and his family, until our on-water conversation was terminated by the fisheries inspection boat  - just doing their job and I certainly support the policing of the regulations.  My young fella wasn’t on the boat that day (constantly getting up at 5am was a bit much and seeing he had got a nice pink the night before, and I was taking out a work mate as deckie, he politely declined).  He was however disappointed not to finally meet the member that had helped us and I PM’d this advice.  We talked about all getting together for a fish one day and the member indicated his willingness to go fishing with the Young Pinky Master.

WTF - Young Pinky Master, didn’t his head swell far more than was actually warranted by his actions.  Yes, he has landed a few nice pinks but Master is taking it far too far.  He has actually contemplated changing his Fishwrecked “handle” to this but I have told him that there need to be many more pinks on the boat before this can happen.  Young Pinky Novice or Young Pinky Beginner comes to mind.

Anyway, I have included a number of photos of recent pinks that we (well mostly he) have caught over the last couple of months on the 3 Mile (some of these have been posted before).  He is going quite well (has fished all his life) and perhaps if the catch rate continues up until the demersal closure then YPM may be appropriate?

The first pink of the season.  Undersized so back in the drink.  YPB has caught a lot of these but no more photos of undersized - throwing back 45cm+ pinks is hard given that legal is 35cm in Queensland but the rules are the rules.

 

First legal of 2014 - 71cm.

 

The start of it all.
