The Queen of Rock Cods
We tried to make the most of it. Found another spot, berleyed up and cast our lines. 4 hours later I'm afraid that rock cod in the picture was the best I could come up with. Too bad it's not one of the target species that gets you prices. Matt caught 2 snappers but way too small to even be considered. I lost more bait to shags in the water than actual fish and caught more seaweed than anything else. What a shame.
But at least we had a good time :-) And that's what it's all about in the end. We met a guy who's been in the comp for 5 years and has NEVER been able to weigh in a single fish. I sincerely hope I will do better than that. Matt managed to at least weigh in one snapper last year that was quite close to the mystery weight, too.
Tonight's mission will be a lot better planned. We still have until 4pm tomorrow to catch the big guys. COME ON FISHIES!!!!
