Altona Sunday 15/10

Postby Evo552 Mon Oct 16, 2017 7:23 am

Headed out sunrise the ramp was full before dawn and parked on the street.
Between me and No1 decky we landed 9 flathead in the low to mid 30-37cm mark.
We were chasing squid in shallow and I spotted something floating in the water. It was a rod and reel - line attached to something still.
After finding the reel in working order and winding in and getting rid of about 10 kg of weed, there was a poor old ray still hooked to this floating combo.
Released the ray and now we have a very second hand surf rod combo with no owner. Probably the ray pulled it off the Altona jetty or breakwall.
Water temp was at 14.8 degrees.
Fantastic day.
No reds that far north - yet ha ha.


Saltwater fishing, boat mad but has a job that gets in the way.
