Jig A Jig

Jig A Jig

After a blowy start to the day and trying quite a few spots in close (40-50m) for little reward we decided to head a little wider to try our luck.

Tried a few spots under 200m to start and got some big flattys but not much else. Ground is good right thru this area but no luck today.

Headed out to 250m next and same again - very quiet except for some Reds.

Worked our way along the coast and on the last spot (Woo Hoo - More New Ground) we had some luck. With the other guys using bait I went the jig again and 1st drop scored a nice Cod of 6kg or there abouts. With enough of a feed on board I packed it in and tried to get some fish for the other guys. After a few dropped fish Honsu changed to the Jig as well and wasnt long before he scored this one of around 10kg. It put up a pretty good tussle and Im pretty sure it shocked him with how hard it went in that depth.

Run in was fantastic with the water flattening right off and in the end was a good day out.

Nice cod Honsu.

Great way to end a long day on the water with flat water all the way in...more of it over the next few months too.

Cheers Pete
