Trevally on fly

Well Liam and I went for a quick fish at the spot near Rattlesnake today. Malcolm was going out tomorrow and I have a couple of kids to baby sit so it was a quick trip. We left at about 6am and we were fishing by 6.45am.

We looked for the bait schools as this seems more important than looking for structure at the moment.

Well I guess you want to know how we went. It started brilliant with Liam dropping his metal slice down and hooked up straight away. We tried the same drift but nothing, so we looked around and found the bait. Yep you guessed I had a fish a drift when we got it right on my white fly, but it was hard getting the drift right! So we anchored and got it right first time! Straight away we both had fish, Liam on metal and me on fly. Eventually Liam changed to fly and he picked up a few as well. Over all in an hour and half we had 12 trevelly between 40 and 50cm and missed a few each. Liam got taken and broken up a couple of times on metal as well.

All in all a great morning, we finished at 8.30am and back home by 10.00am
