Father's Day Eging Report
Posted on 26 November 2017
The next calamari didn't take long but was mayhem as the swell pushed the squid from side to side as we moved it around to land him. The squid were decent sizes and quite chunky we noticed and weren't being too shy as they were hooked firmly on the candles luckily. As the egi was drifting in the current I felt a slight tug as line went tight and i struck. The weight was heavier than usual and ended up being a cuttlefish that was released after the photo. I got another small cuttle and so did William during the evening. Although it was a Father's Day trip, my father wasn't having much luck as he landed an octopus
The squid were consistently caught throughout the evening as we constantly worked the bottom, donating plenty of egi's in return for some calamari. William hit a new PB as the drag started to peel unusually as the calamari lunged constantly and peeled off the smooth drag of the Daiwa Emeraldas Air as it rung in the air. After a tough tussle and troublesome landing we were lucky to assist William in landing a new pb of a hood length of 38cm.
At the end of the evening we had enough and called it a night at 9:30pm.
