Re: 2013 sping/summer surf catches.


Tried a spot I often thought about, but never got around to fishing until last night.

Arrived a bit after 7:30 to a cold steady northerly blowing a good chop onto the beach, but was not cold enough to send me home. I quickly realised the beach there was extremely shallow, which left me wishing for lighter line to gain extra casting distance. Anyway, soon had two prawns soaking in the sea while I waited for a bite.. which was provided by a medium-small Rig, then another one of similar size after dark. No sign of Moki which was the target species. Stopped fishing just before 10pm.

Was quite a few blue bottle jellyfish washed up on the beach, quite common for that area this time of year. Might do a overnight trip there later in the year… would love to photograph the Milky-way above the Cape and light house.
