Headed to south Pemb’s again. Today’s target was Wrasse and Pollock using soft plastics in deeper water. The swell report was not good with a 5 feet swell hitting the chosen mark.

Arrived at first light and decided to chance an exposed point, ten minute walk to find the swell was too big so headed back inshore to find some protection from the westerly swell.
Found a lovely gully with some nice protection but water clarity was not good, the swell was smashing into the rocks behind me.

Tried a few different sp’s including big hammers did not have any success with them but they have a lovely action, senkos and then different colour xlayer's.

Found some kelp, bounced the lure off the bottom then this fella hit. After a nice fight it came ashore. Measuring in at 40cm at a guess about 2lb



Tried for another hour but no more luck.

Headed further west and fished an exposed rock mark for Bass trying a feed shallow, zonk gateride and a few sp's but no luck. The swell was making fishing hard and clarity was not good so called it a day.

Target species caught and lots of learning with different sp’s.

Thanks Gents, conditions were rough, the exposed marks were similar to Darren's report with a big swell. Its great to see the different fishing options that sp's allow.

it a bit of a bu--er when you travel all that way to find out the swell or the clarity spoils it,good thinking getting out of it and well done pulling one out.

yeah, well done for sticking at it and changing venue and finding a fish, that west swell was a bit scary, but as long as you keep your eye on it you can spot the big ones quite a way out and shout out "wave" to everyone with you and move back to safety. unless your name is Daz of course lol . ps dont think any of us would have fished on our own in those conditions though !

Well done Marc, nice fish mate & on SP's as well, you will enjoy your new Rod and Reel, I tested it on some great rock marks this weekend and didn't scratch it that badly and the dent on the spool came out OK :wink:

Good job, Marc - SP fishing will be much easier with the new outfit :) Be careful out there when fishing on your own!
