[img_assist|fid=62501|thumb=0|alt=jacks tevhead]
gidday all .just got back from coral bay
i had a bloody ball .unfortunatly i only got the boat out the one time with my wife as deckie and my 2 young boys 7 and 5.they lasted about 20minutes before they wanted to go back .the swell was big and the wind was on the up so i treid trolling around inside south passage hoping to hook up to maybee increase my kids enthusiasim.but no joy 10 minutes later i look up the front of my boat and both kids are asleep .after months of windging that i never take them fishing and there sleeping.so i took the wife for a sight seeing tour of the shallow reefs south of town .she looked and i did my best to hook somthing on a plastic .no cigar.
so basicaly with the wind blowing its ring out for the 2 weeks i became a first class sand castle builder.brownie points big time .
the second week JACK to the rescue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
with two half days of beach fishing 50 odd km north of town,and yep i got squat.but jack got the big trev above .and did it make him piss!!!!!
.we were lobbing baits into a little cut in the reef from shore.jack was on fire landing a couple of nice spanglies a cobia and then BBBBBAAAAAAANNNNNGGGGGGG.HIS ROD DOUBLED and line peeeeeellled from the spheros .we called it for a shark and the drag was screwed all the way down .after 10 minutes off getting some then loosing more he was hurting.but he kept at it and there ya go a 20kg plus trev pulled out off 3 to 4 foot of water

Awesome stuff Mitch, I'm glad we didn't go to Coral Bay this September... don't think I'll ever go there during that time of year again :p

Might have to make an annual pilgrimage during April me thinks.

50 km north, what access is that? Did you camp on the beach?

Great fish there. Love the front on shot showing the thickness of the fish.

No doubt he's swimming out there now terrifying the resident mullet schools.

Ouch!! Yeh the guns were

Fri, 2006-10-20 07:52

Ouch!! Yeh the guns were pumpin after that!! Was one of the last things i thought would be cruisin around in 3-4 foot of water. Pretty lucky to get him actually. The BIG BOY wanted the deep straight away and was off and out around the reef. For some silly reason he came back inside and was laying on the sand in around 10 min. In the meantime mitch is in one ear sayin he's got ya, your f@#k$d, he's done ya! Hence the reason the guns came out!!! Great fun.
