Angie’s First Mack

Posted by joker on
Fishing Trips

Took the family out for the day on the water last weekend, was hoping to do a spot of camping in the boat overnight but weather was not in our favour. We got on the water early to try to push wide before the storm rocked up but was a little to lumpy for the kids so we ran back into the cover of the harbour.

Checked out a few wrecks (not much activity) and headed over to a few rock ledges where we encountered these little fellas obviously chasing bait. As we saw a few of them dart under the boat, turned to find a mob of birds working the surface. As the kids were happy enough to sit and watch the birds do there thing. I had to throw a jig in amongst them and without much of a crank I got to check my drag washers worked on my reel Stradic. Not long after the getting our first the Mrs hooked up and got her fist mack to the boat.
We chased this school around for a bit and managed a few fish and the kids got to ratbag around in the Harbour while we chased them. So game plan didn’t go down the way we wanted but made do with what we had and produced some nice fish, just goes to show, stay motivated and persistence always pays off
