Had a very nice Milli week 2 to 6 Ockt. Launching was an experience due to very shallow bay and 6 second waves. Not very big but continuous.

Tuesday was a nice day and the launch very easy (Even for the Toppie)

Decided on a purple pearl Daisy Chain and was immediatly into a huge King which was taxed by and enourmous big Black tip.

In about 1 hour I caught 3 Kakaap and some more kingis.
Whilst drifting cought a few kings on popper. All released.

On the drift I was bullied and broken out.(Never even saw the number plates)

On my last trace and only one Razor belly left as bait I decided to call it a day and as I went from 21 m water to 17 I was stopped dead and thought I was hooked on the reef but this "reef"started to tow me around and being bullied earlier I thought, use it or loose it.

After putting my tackle through extreme test I saw this
Huge Kakaap and managed to hatch the fish.

Weighed 12.5 kg and surely one of my best catches.

Bassbug...one word Challenging.

The bay was very shallow due to sandbanks a there was almost 15 foamies to get through with big breakers at the back..and the North easter did not make it easier.
The wave period was 6 seconds.

I found a nice rip about 1 k north from the beach entrance and that is where I launched (The Toppie must find easier launches ;).

rips do help but have to still be caustious. a friend of mine once said, where's the fun in that, did take him forever to catch up, wet and tired, i was allready to pull baits by then

Nice fish Malboer! Good to see that you are still going strong and having a blast with all the great fishing their. Is it all of effort to setup and pull a daisy chain on the kayak?

Hi Bijen

These are my old mans great fish. I had to look after the farm when he fished Ha ha ha. I will get my turn.

Regarding the daisy Chains buy a made up one from Pulsator and start to make up your own variations from the sample. Very simple once you get the hang of it. some guys even just snell their hooks in line.

Landing a fish is a different story four hooks shaking wildly so be carefull.

They do pull heavy but not as heavy as a halco.

No effort at all. the best thing is Most fish attack a daisy. Even the toothy critters and you do lose some fish because of this.

Good to hear from you.

Regards
Malboer

Hi Bjien

Ja, an old trick only to be rediscovered when Malboer and myself decided to pull "teasers" with the jet.

I have made one up with 3 Purple squid... No hooks on the line and a slightly larger Cona with a hook at the back.
Got a quick strike on the 3d squid which was a sudden bite of.

I was fortunate to be on leave and used a bought blue/purple Daisy and modified the last one with a slihgtly larger cona (Same colour).
All the squids was hooked and pulled fairly easy on the Kayak although I knew it was there (Toppie syndrome)

I was truly surprised by the success rate of that Daisy chain. Kakaap and Kings attacked it with passion.
Yes, the four hooks dangling is a concern but was easely manageble.

I had takes on every hook, from 1 to 4.. and was even Taxed with a nice King on the trailing cona but the chain survived the battering although it was scolded.
Got the head of a 10-12 Kg king.

Next week is nice...Moderate North easter..Very nice.

Camping fee is Mt 400 per person per night...Vehicle once off Mt 400 trailer Mt 200.

Fishing lisence Mt 420 and Lanching fee whatever they decide... I have paid from Mt 400 to 1000 per week and never got a receipt.

The exchange rate is from 4.3 t0 4.5/1

But yes Mili never disapoints..!! enjoy your week ;)

Hi Rory

Yes it is planned to be there the whole of next week. But have a look at windguru I don't think it will be nice. I'm lucky and can change plans in the wink of a eye. for you that have planned for so long. it might be different. So the guru will decide my fate depending on what it will do from Wednesday to Sunday. :X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X:X.

decisions decisions. if I go and its a blowout. will it be any worse than not to go and weather turns nice?

Regards
Malboer
