Gods way of telling me its over :S

Fished some rocky ledges in the Coomera from 4 onwards with no love. Hooked a few bream in the mid 20's and some baby gt's were schooling up with my sx40 as I retrieved. Bream were all caught on 2lb with lightly weighted slider grubs in a green/brown colour.

After the sun went down there was a lot of surface action and the breeze disappeared completely.

I cast a bubblepop35 around some pontoons and had quite a few misses and then it happened, right up against a pontoon. The lure touched down, I closed the bail arm and the water erupted with a big take and a great fight, it headed for the rockes, then a post, then under the motor, around the boat. 3 attempts and its finally in the net. Bring it up to the light and I see what it is :angry:

the top fish is bream, and the bottom one is moses perch mate. if you're after flatties, 4 inch jerkshads might be a better bet.

How do I know its time to go home..

It starts with the mobile ringing and ends with the lady of the house saying.. and do we still own the wagon and boat, as they seem to have been missing for a few days longer than expected...bloody mobiles :blush::blink::laugh:
