right at the end of the rock channel

Postby neil.price37 » Fri Jun 25, 2010 7:36 pm

decided a plugging session was called for with all the clear water and bait fish around so decided on the derby pool gulley as it has produced before ;) but on arrival thought i'd head to the very end of the rock channel instead, an hour later i found water :shock:

other direction

and distance covered

on finishing the walk I could see some terns and cormorants working were the two tide flows were colliding, ideal predator water and first chuck of the plug into the troubled water gave a large slash which I thought was my lure surfacing but on closer inspection my lure was 10 foot from the splash so second cast obviously had to go there and a few turns of the reel later a strong pluck then nothing then a real weight and more splashing but not a great fight resulted in this

not surprising it didn't fight when you see how it was hooked :( but a first for me and the first I have ever heard of locally and now something i'll target again now i know they are there :D
I did fish all the way back through the derby pool gully and got no other knocks or follows but the amount of sand eels was unreal ;)

Great catch, I've never seen a gar caught off a beach round here before. I think my fly gear needs an outing!
I saw baitfish jumping in the river on Sunday while I was mulleting (or blanking to be more accurate).

Nice one - maybe I'll take my fly rod on Sunday morning as well as my 'hound' gear.
