Fished Ele point, arrive 5pm, left 9:30pm just before high tide. Fine night, no wind saw many shooting stars. Fishing was slow, a few nibbles before it got dark then nothing until 9:25 when I hooked a underwater bulldozer which took a heap of line, then the line become taunt and I noticed the line had dug itself down beneath other line on the reel…….. fish broke off. Probably a sizable ray. Must take the reel out in the yak and tow the line out behind me so I can re-wind it back onto the reel, would hopefully fix.
Also need to remember to wear thermals and take a down jacket when night fishing at this time of year. Was quite chilly.
