Rock channel 25/5/17

Postby stephen atkinson » Thu May 25, 2017 8:22 pm

Arrived at Harrison drive about 3.30 got suited and booted and made the walk to the waters edge, Richie Fisher was waiting to do the crossing also, gray and brian where not far behind, we got across just as the bank was uncovering, we made the walk to the point having a chat with Richie it was his 5th time venturing down the bank and my 6th with pretty much nothing to show for it, plus probably used over 100 peeler crab aswell in my efforts to land, what we all do the walk for a smoothhound, first cast or second cast for Richie and he shouts over the words that we all want to hear I'm on Steve it feels a good un, I goes down to Richie and his rods got a decent bend in and after a bit of a tussle I tail end his prize a lovely smoothy of 8lb 10 was beached.Richie got a pic on his phone. Half hour later my rod tip sprung back slackliner and I too was having a bit of a tussle and Richie did the honours and tail ended my first smoothy of the year 6lb 9. I was buzzing.Image Not long after that I was getting indications something was on me bait, then it went slack pulled in a little thorny of about 3 half lb. Image
So all in all it was a pleasant afternoon am back out there Saturday see if there still about. Oh and another plus Richie pulls in my rig lead and shockleader that I lost well over a week ago that he kindly gave me back happy days.

By the way have you lost any other rigs? I pulled one in the other day that looked quite recent and pretty well tied but had snapped on the leader.

If it had a splashdown lead on ian spring mounted up an over there could be a possibility had 2 snap offs since I've fished the channel on the leader, I think it's because it's a tapered leader ian starts from 18lb goin to 70lb am going to start tying them at about the 30lb mark on the leader. Think the braid is cutting into the line and because it's only 18lb it's just weakening it as I'm pulling me end gear over the banks . :think:

Sounds about right Ste, guess I owe you a lead. I quite like that adjustable clip on the line though. Is that the rig you used for the cod in winter?

If it's of any use I've been using 40lb braid straight through and not had any problems so far. (Just watch, tomorrow might be different)

Found this Pipefish swimming in a pool on the way back. Might be worth adding

Ive been using that rig all through winter ian done me well ive just started to extend me snood line on me up an over put an extra 2 foot on it for the smoothys instant result today, am thinking of goin straight through as well to be honest ian especially on the bank not much in the way of snags just dragging it over the bank and gullies on the retrieve.
