    It’s stitting in my fridge , that’s all I care about lol …..

    The bait came thick this morning , got 3lb in about 8lifts ….the last lift had about 100 , and it was FULL of shit ….I cant be fagged with that …..so pulled out and dropped down the back like I did yesterday …..I got lucky down the back

    Id be suprised if the box netters had been getting much more than 3-4 lb ,tho they got a bit yesterday …..tonight they are creaming it …mark my words

    Edited to add , Just woke the old chook up , 2.10am they finished cleaning it lol ….they get out maybe once or twice a season ……just a shade over 16 1/2 lbs …

    Well …..it was thick at the mouth this morning …….got 24lb in maybe 30-45 minutes ….4 3lb lifts in a row …..then that bloody crappy tea leaves came along ….I got 1 lift of about an ounce as it arrived so pulled the pin and dropped down the back expecting to fill the truck lol ……..got another 2lb …was a nice day back there tho ….

    I saw Bobs son I think it is , he was behind me , I saw him have a 3lb lift at one point , but I was preoccupied as you could imagine , so not sure how he got on in the end …..

    It didnt look like they were getting much on the drop tonight when I left tho …..unlike last night with the box netters

    Watched a box netter pick up 8lb in 20mins , last time I spoke to him today he thought he had 25+ pound
    I got 14.5lb for the afternoon …got there late as I worked this morning …

    The guys hammering the hole south of the mouth would have got heaps …..
    I heard word of 40+ pound catches on the prime spots today…..
    These huge catches have been going on since the afternoon I was accused of catching whitebait weighing 1/2 a pound each lol ………..

    Well ,the boxnetter didnt get 25 , he under estimated it …it was 31 lb ……

    The bloke who fished the hole to the right of the mouth before dropping back to the beach on Monday , caught 50lb …

    5 days now its been screaming up the river ….new record for me today lol

    Everyone I talk to say they have set personal bests this year , some, like me , have done it twice ……

    Million dollar question is , what will the Avon/Heathcote estuary fish like next year after being closed for 2 season ………

    I’ve seen sweet bugger all in the avon this season..been looking too, not baiting though lol. The trout are feeding hard out on the stuff but I can’t locate a decent shoal in the avonside girls high area at all, lots of small groups about.
