The farmers were cutting the grass so its bound to be dry we thought as we headed for the coast. As I hopped over the wet boulders I thought I felt a drop of rain! By the time I reached the waters edge it was persisting down very heavily. At least the sea was flat calm and clear ideal conditions I thought.
After twenty minutes or so I was in action. I was retrieving in my normal erratic way trying to entice any following fish. I slowed the retrieve right down and then speeded up with a couple of brisk turns of the handle. Bang bass on; a bass of a couple of pounds unhooked quickly and slipped straight back. Did the speeding up of the lure trigger a strike or would it have hit anyway with a steady retrieve?
An hour later and I am in again another schoolie shortly after changing to a different plug. Did the change of plug make the difference? Questions and answers that’s the fun of the game and the fish give different answers
