Here's a mad day at the beach for your blog Tom.... Sue dropped me at the beach this morning on the way to the shop. Said she’d be back in an hour or so to join me & wet a line. Off i headed, bagged a load of live whiting in the cast net & set off to the end of the sand spit. 30 mins later, a nice queenfish (~60cm) & a decent Golden Trevally (~80cm / 10kg) had given me little G-Loomis stick a workout. Both the fish went back as I didn’t want to give up yet & the fish would have cooked in the heat had I kept them. Didn’t even get a picture.
2 more whiting left in the bucket. Sue’s given up as her arms were sore....... Out went another whiting on the Loomis. 5 mins later, fish on. Now, here’s what I think happened. I had hooked a good sized queenie or trevally or barra; who knows. Pretty sure I saw the tail of a queenie. Next thing, line has zipped quickly across to the right. Just started making a bit of line back when I saw a 2m long bull shark launch out of the water not 10m from us. This was a mad sight; the whole shark fully aerial, with what I think was my queenie in its gob. No sooner had the shark hit the water again & my line parted. Oh well, never would have had a chance with 100m 12lb braid on the little 3000.
Fish for tea tonight.
Think Sue deffo outfished Omar on this one lol - well done guys (great fishing as always)
