    After 3 and a half months of no fishing I finally convinced myself to go soak some baits down the local beach.
    After sourcing some live worms from The Entrance and having some mullet and pillies from my last outing in January I headed off with much anticipation...
    Picked my spot up close to the headland and around the reefy fringes hoping for a few Taylor on the mullet and pillies and some Bream and Ting on the worms.

    First cast on the worms I got a 40cm 'Ting, followed by a smaller version around 30cm (which was released). By the time I had dehooked the "ting my big rod went off and I landed a small but keeper sized Snapper (released).
    ... Things were looking to be for a good session but I didnt quite expect what happened next...
    Both rods went off at the same time- on the big rod I landed this super duper 70cm Croc and when I had dispatched that I caught a small tarwhine on the small rod (released also)

    It kinda went quiet for a bit on the peak of the tide but I did manage another 40cm 'ting no long after the slack so I was pretty happy.

    The bistes come in thick and fast and I landed 3 X keeper sized Bream all between 27cm and 30cm but I released them all also.

    ... By this time I was getting low on bait and had thrown a bunch of frames around to try and bring a donkey Bream into the trail but I only managed to get some little sting rays.

    Alas I dropped a handful of Taylor and I suspect some bigger bream and Whiting in the process but was super stoked just to get out and catch a really nice feed for a change.

    Hoping to get out in a couple of weeks after all the holiday tourists have gone home and the cooler weather has settled in- its still 30degrees in the day here so its just like summer... Im itching for the drop in temps so the bigger 'Ting and Bream will come on the chew along with some greenback taylor and salmon.

    Tight lines everyone

    Well done, Anthony. I thought you had been a bit quiet there for a while when we weren't getting any reports. How have things worked out with your mentoring program? Did it get off the ground or not enough interest?
