To me a donut is an insult. There are several factors there. The main reason is that I see a donut as the result of me not working hard enough, or perhaps not 'seriously' fishing. There's no other reason to go fishing than to catch fish. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day on the water. We started about 0830 and returned about 1630. For some unknown reason we went across the entrance to a narrow channel close against the bank. I have always liked the area but had rarely caught fish there. Early, we only got a couple of throwbacks. The water was fairly good with perhaps a metre visibility. I suggested we go about a kilometre up toward the broadwater where we got one keeper and a small one. As the tide continued to run out, the dirty river water took over and visibility dropped noticeably. It was time to move back downstream and I went across to the channel fished earlier We released a couple of small flatties and had begun changing plastics. I picked up one at just under 50 which was welcome and my mate got one slightly less. Dark colours became the order of the day. Lighter colours were harder to see. Observation as Pete said in his post is essential. Flocks of cormorants, seagulls, terns and pelicans were seen rounding up bait fish. There'd be more than hundred birds. I have the impression they drive the school into the shallows, then it's everyone in for a feed. On went smaller plastics and we moved into shallower water. The 60mm Squidgy fish, with a two gram jig head in the black/gold colour is often a good fish taker, I suggest because of its bait fish size. I soon had a nice one swimming around the boat to be netted. The game had changed at least a bit and a few smaller ones went back. A little later after a period of nothing, I collected another almost 50 on the same plastic. It spat out some small fish as it neared the boat, proving at least in part my thoughts. Ray asked why I decided to go to certain places and fairly quickly get a fish or two. I could only say 'I have no idea' and that is was likely just a guess. He said 'I don't believe that. You've done it before and three more times today, and going to places you rarely fish'. There's more to it than guessing and something I don't understand. Nor do I unless it's a need to just keep trying. It was a most pleasant day and more like it are hopefully ahead. We've caught more often enough but after weeks of fires and floods, being able to get out there and catch a fish or three was terrific. Hopefully will attach a couple of pics, being screen shots from some bits of video. It's hard to get the exact frame but have got fairly close. They're not as good as a good camera image. You can see how shallow the water was. One about 50 in the net. Just over 70. A good fish in anyone's book. Our next concern might be limitations on going outdoors due to the current pestilence issue. Time will doubtless tell. Noel A now happier fisho.
