Rouse Whting
« on: Thu 10 Jan 23:23 2019 »
What an interesting day.

Frank and I went out at gentleman's hours from Cleveland about 9.00am. Must have been a popular place to be due to amount of boat trailers. Conditions were good, very little wind, tide running in. High tide was to be about Midday.

Arrived at our destination in no time, there was bit of haze in the distance , noticed about 50 boats scattered further North East to us. Only 3 boats noticed where we were.

Frank was the first to land a nice winterize, I was busy fixing another sinker to my line as the original sinker somehow was severed from the line. Not off to a good start but once my rod was in the brine, the mojo picked up.

Wind had shifted a bit and had more puff , called it quits at about 12.30pm, Frank had to be back home by 2.00pm.

All up we had 59 winteries.

Here's a pic of some of the winteries.

    Nice haul. It's still amazes me they are commonly called a winter whiting  (real name is trumpeter whiting )
    but you can catch them all year round in the bay and still get some good size ones in summer

    suerob,

    G'day mate, we still had to look for them to begin with, tings do move around a bit. Makes it more difficult if no mark put on the chart as a reference point, they might not be there next time, but still good where they were caught from the previous trip. Unfortunately old mate could not place a marker on the map.

    Is LadyK still down this way or gone North as planned?

    Cheers,
    Bondy
