Straddie tailor
« on: Tue 10 Oct 20:33 2017 »
I've had two phone calls in the past few days from two different guys that don't know each other n I trust. one that lives on Straddie n one that had just been over to fish telling me to get on over with reports of 3 kg fish common with a few 5-6 kg fish thown in along with a 1.2m Jew on bonito while chasing the tailor. Apparently most good looking gutters are producing on main beach without the need to go all the way to the pin. Sorry for no photos but there both good old boys that Prob don't have smart phones with cameras but I wouldn't get a phone call from them if nothing was happening.
Looking forward to the next trip

    If the forcast is ok for the club comp weekend I'lm planing to go over with Dan "burger" as the DD🍻 (designated drinker) for the trip riding shotgun. Hopefully meet up with any other nuggerters heading over there n try to upgrade our PB's n bring something to the weigh in.
    Looking forward to the next trip

    Took a while to find them n had some average conditions saturday but rum n coffee got is through till they turned up. Beach is pretty flat at the bottom end with trees down from camp 8 South n then nothing as far as gutters after the camp zone headed to the pin which looked like a chocolate milkshake. Our tailor came from just south of the gorge nottling dr cutting on main in the middle of the day. Also access at the adder rock end of flinders is closed so you have to get on at either behive rd or amity. No pb's unfortunately but better than a donut
    Looking forward to the next trip

    Thanks mate It took a while to find them n we missed the friday night high tide due to some mysterious night blindness that descended curtesy of going from beers to rum n cokes waiting for the high but that's a story for another day. Had some 40 pound wire cut through during a fight n also lost some whole rigs while in rod holders. So there was some better fish about but all in all with the forcast I think we did ok dan piped me for size on the tailor but I got dart n a flattie n there better chewing in my books.
    Looking forward to the next trip

    Yeah the tide only came in for 4 days, but the rain may have had something to do with that.  :o
