    Hi everyone,

    just thought I'd let everyone know about my fishing trip the past few days...

    Swell was not there, a little wind, the bar crossing from Narooma was flat.

    Fishing with lures produced nothing... caught a small live bait and put it on heavy gear (100kg trace, large Penn real, heavy rod) and got a strike off the south point on Montegue... lasted about 5 secs when the line just snapped!! not sure what it was, perhaps a large shark.

    Bottom bashing produced a large variety of reef fish including snapper and morwong.

    Anchored close in at a drop off to 25m (surrounded by 18-20m). Used chicken pellets as berley with no action in first 10-15 minutes. After that at the change of tide produced a strike from a Morwong (1-1.5kg) as soon as the bait (pilchard stips) hit the bottom. One large strike staightened my hook (only used small hooks) but we got the bag limit of nice Morwong.
