Post by Lure-Nut » Mon Nov 16, 2009 7:05 pm

Grabbed a coldie at dusk, down to the Pontoon, baitfish and shrimp everywhere, first Tarpon for the season landed on a Megabass Dog X Coayu in minutes - water is looking very good this year, this is gunna be fun, time to push the tinny off and go looking for more over the next month or so yay yay yay and Giant Herring won't be far behind susssmilie susssmilie

p.s. the Herring baitfish schools are huge this year, son was trolling them up, they were that thick and going 125++mm sawht

Tarpon and Giant Herring at the back door. Sounds like a good place to be over summer. If you have a neigbours wharf to get all the scales on from the GHerrring even better than messing up your own thumbsupsmilie . I recon then that small GT's and Jacks would be close by as well. When are we going to see a fish on that Deception gold bomber Rob ???

Mate, GT's and Jacks arrived about 2-3 weeks ago .... waiting for the Giant Herring though - interesting thought, who'd win a tug war across the bay on a weight for weight basis .... Giant Herring or a Jack ???

Alistair .... somehow don't think the Deception Gold Bomber will get a run against these toothy critters .... lol lol crazysmilie reckon that big green scorpion you've got would be a go though pokeystix

Jack for sure, the Herring spend to much time in the air to put the hurt on a Jack.

The Scorpion? I dont think so. assy

6/0 through the back of the herring and a bit of weight to get down to where the jacks are should do the trick.
