Best ever day.

Went out this afternoon, after getting caught in the horizontal rains of Friday night/Saturday morning. Tried every topwater lure from our bags and Karen was first to connect on a Patchinko but sadly it managed to wriggle free before we saw what size it was:(. The swell was becoming enourmous by now, and I thought it was worth trying a Rudra 130 after reading how well they handled turbulent water. Second cast, and my rod bends into a nice fish that turned out to be a pollock of just over 2lb. A few casts later, the rod bends again and after a short fight a beautiful bass of about 2lb 4oz is at my feet. A few casts later and again I caught his identical twin:-D. Next, a tiny bass of about 25cm taken in about 10" of water, and finally another bass of about 2lb 8oz:-D:-D:-D. This was definitely my best ever days bassing, nothing to count for the comp, but we'll see what tomorrow brings.

Well done Gary great resullt in what must be hard conditions. I`ve spoken loads about the rudra and how awesome it is so always good to hear others doing the business with them as well.

Just got home. I had 3 bass all HRF. The star moment for me was this afternoon showing Carl B how to work a small SP HRF in fast running shallow water when a beast took in 2ft of water in blazing hot sunshine. I don't have the pics as I had to leave my memory card for the c&r photo confirmation for that and a fish Richie had when we were out. I'll post more tomorrow. Only had 6 hours sleep since Thursday... Too busy fishing for sleep!!
