The Drought Is Broken

3 04 2013

After a week at Windamere and Burrendong seeing only one Golden and one Redfin both to Romen, I was extremely anxious to get back to my home grounds and fish the river. Today one of my best mates, Tyson, and I managed a quick session on the surface.

The first fish of the trip was caught almost as soon as we began, taking the lure on the ‘splash down’ off the surface.

Once reaching the part of water I was planning to fish, I was quick to find a fish to hit the surface lure at my feet but fail to hook up. Walking further along the water we find a snag pile which often produces quality fish, I cast parallel to the bank where I am “BOOFED” solidly, but failed to hook up. Next cast through the same place and the fish came back again, this time hooking up and fighting extremely hard amongst the submerged structure. A bit of maneuvering along the log was reguired, but the fish was soon enough landed, measured (69cm), photographed and released again.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATime passed too quickly with a number more small boofs at our lures which also failed to hook up, so we made our way back to the ute, however we still fished which seen many small fish hitting us and chasing us and Tyson eventually hooking into another legal Cod which put up quite a fight at our feet.
