River session 17Oct15

TR by eyetag

Wind: 0-10 Knots variable
Current: top of tide
Launch Point: Noosa Heads Lions park
Participants: Eyetag

I launched around 9 and trolled through the Woods bays straight to the river mouth with only a Hairtail for my effort. On arrival I trolled a gold bomber there with good results landing around half a dozen Bigeye Trevally from 30-45cm, then the tide started running out and I left the scene hastily as it is no place to be in a run out tide of a night time. I then paddled up and fished the current line near Rickys getting a couple more Bigeye on a small gladiator prawn using the light gear and having some fun, but there was little surface action and things were slow. Deciding to head around the back of the sound I trolled the entrance to Weyba creek and after a good 5 minute battle with a hard fighting fish I had the Giant Trevally onboard, I did another 5 minutes trolling without a hit and I headed in.

Fish were bled on capture to limit suffering and improve eating quality.
