We headed upstream casting at all the likley looking snags Terry was first to get a hookup with a little GT from a fallen tree, I then got a small flathead sorry no pics of either. as it was getting darker we both switched to the surface I was throwing a pencil and Terry a popper. I cast into a Beautiful looking snag walk walk Pause BOOF massive hit and hookup:woohoo: Im on I yelled to Terry but before I could finish saying that I was done dusted snagged, the fish didnt even pull drag must have only moved 50cm or so and did me :angry: peddled over and did get my lure back Minus the fish :blush:

that was all the action we saw, but an enjoyable arvo on the water.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: That sounds like my mooloolah river jack hunt last weekend. We got some bream, a little jewie 15 or so cod (biggest would have gone 35cm) and a few other things. Then the ray I got a eagle ray that would have gone much bigger than that 1 terry was holding. It nearly spooled my little calcutta and I burnt the crap out of my thumb while trying to stop it.

Lol that ray is nothign compared to the one I saw casually cruising under and around me in less than 2 foot of water (my mirage drive was hitting the bottom every now and then!)

An absolute car bonet, ask Lee I got all excited when I saw him - even tried to tempt him with a lure lol. then I found out lee had jagged a ray so I was ok with that :P
