    So...headed out to the channel in about 40 km/h winds Tuesday evening! The plan was to fish for about half an hour with lures just before dark then fish with bait. Before I left home I thought I should put long pants on...yeah, nah! That was my first mistake!

    I started the onslaught with an Ecogear ZX blade. It now sits on the concrete structure on the other side of the channel. After about 15 minutes my back and knees were hurting but I persisted for a while. Then something strange happened!

    Can anyone ID this for me? Is it a...wait...for...it...fish?:cool: It was only about 30 cm's long and it took a Rapala shallow running Shad Rap lure. The old faithful 'Perch' pattern.

    After this excitement I settled down for a bait fishing session. There were some shrimp in my net so out they went. I was rather cold and the wind made it difficult to detect bites. I gave up just before 10 pm and retrieved my line to find no bait left.
