Fort

Postby Big Hitter » Sat Jun 23, 2018 2:12 pm

So me and Housey decided to give the Rock Channel a miss and hit the fort instead.
Think we made the right choice.
Both fished squid and crab baits at distance and ended up with 4 Rays upto 5lb and 2 Hounds with the biggest being around 7lb.

Cracking session guys, nice tidy set up with your tray tripod along side your stand - being organised in your set up always help rather turning your box upside down to find a pair of scissors!

Cheers guys. Enjoyed it. Really getting into fishing fixed spools down the rod now. Been hitting some big distances with em.
Paul Argent, the tray thing came about from our international matches when you had to be organised or your stuffed. Works really well unless it’s windy. :lol:

It’s only 14ft 2 that rod Tom. It’s a mkll Tip Tornado Sport with Titanium k guides. It looks long because I fish reel down. 8)

I could see the benefits of the casting and retrieving up the ledges at perch and talacre. The rod seat high up on the rest too. Cool approach 8)
I think my icon is 14ft, it's being repaired at the mo, will move the reel seat down and toy around with the casting. It had felt like the butt of the rod was in the way. The thing I fear most with the pendulum or swing around, is the pressure on the tip of your finger when it comes to the release time. Yet to clue that up but fishing gets in the way :lol:

Tom, if you see how hard I cast you wouldn’t worry about the pressure on your finger mate :lol:
