No Fingermark for me

Report for 9/4/08

Took another run out wide yesterday with Dad to try for some more Fingermark. Ward came along in his boat with Julie and Liam. Collected live bait from Middle Reef and headed wide off West Point. Fingermark came in quick succession. Dad landed 3 and Ward had 1 in no time. But I couldn't seem to hook up! The bite didn't last long, and with a few bite offs to Mackerel I stated spinning. There seemed to be good numbers of mackerel around, but there were in patches. We would get a short run of fish, then nothing for a while. We left there with 3 Fingermark, 6 Mackerel, 1 nice GT and a big Queenfish. We tried to release the Queenie, but he just wouldn't go. I'm not sure what Ward's boat finished up with, but he has also got onto the Mackerel.
