At first I was using a REINS 3inch rockvib shad Gold Legend coupled with a FOX size 1 offset hook and 3.5g cone head. I’ve used this combo for awhile now and only had a couple of hook ups, but a lot of short takes and bites. So I decided it was time for a change, with a moderate swell still forming after the earlier storms in the week I decided to use a heavier 8g cone weight the same Reins Rockvib lure. However, instead of using an offest hook I used a Kamasan size 2 Aberdeen hook effectively rigged weedless.
Second cast into a likely looking gully I had a massive take, but this fish got the better of me and smashed me up good and proper. On goes another lure… rigged the same but this time with a longer 3ft 20LB mono leader. Instead of casting up the gully I decided to drop the lure in half way and shake the rod tip, after about 5 seconds smash FISH ON!
For a wrasse of around 1.5LB the fight is fantastic on the 6.6 Okuma Octana 5g-15g.
Soon after this I had a text from a work colleague, saying I had a package in the post. Like a young kid, I cant wait till Monday to pick them up, so I made the mad dash to work to grab these packets of joy…
Until the next time.. have a good weekend everyone.
