I hadn't been out much the past couple of weeks, so the weekend just passed I decided to go flat out and try to catch a Bass. I failed! not much sleep and 3 days later I'd managed one Grasdos (foul hooked)
Anyway, with the swell that has come in the past couple of days I decided to have another go. Got down to my mark, the water was nicely coloured and there was a big swell running. I'd only had about 5 casts when Bang! fish on, a couple of strong runs and the fish came to the surface. Initially I thought it was a huge Rockfish, as it got closer I realized it was a Bass - a big one too!
I lost a big fish in heavy swell last year, so I wasn't going to let this one get away!
