Today we went out in search of some Bream and Flathead, targetting them on Soft Plastics and Blade Lures.
Heading out to Gladesville in Sydney's South-West fishing off a quiet little rock, Jake and I were keen to bag a decent feed.
I was flicking some small Soft Plastic Squidgies while Jake was using some Blade Lures in hope of finding some good size Bream for the dinner plate, after about half an hour jake had a hit on his Blade. At first we thought it was a good size Bream as it didnt hit very hard, but began to take line out and we beagan to call it as a soap Jewfish. but to our amazement we began to see a Yellow Cordal Fin emerge through the water and knew it was a Kingfish.
Very strange that a Kingfish had taken a small blade in an area where Bream should have been in abundance and definately not a Kingy, but definately a great bycatch especially being in the cooler months where Kingfish usually go off the bight.
Was a beautiful day to fish very sunny but sadly that was the only fish that was caught today.
