DEAL 2ND july

Post by dabhand » Sun Jul 03, 2011 4:39 pm

Hi all. fished deal yesterday evening.
fished from 8pm till 1am.
used lug,rag squid and blueys. blueys are well over-rated in my oppinion. whenever i av used it, the squid has always outfished it everytime.
crabs were a problem all evening. the fish just couldnt get a look in.
in 5 hours had just 5 doggies. 4 decent keepers, 1 a bit smaller.
however it was a nice clear warm evening and the doggies were delicious.

Well done on the doggies dabhand,really good eating.Agree with you about blueys,they always seem softer than mackies to me and come off the hook easier when crab army is about .tite lines vic

Hi Gary

nice one on the dogfish.
On the blueys. Strange that when they first came out they seemed to be really good as a bait for me, but since then I've had nothing on them!

Squid and rag for me in the summer seems to work best, but thats only my experience.

deal 2nd july more bluey thoughts

Post by cloverpirate » Mon Jul 04, 2011 2:39 pm

been thinking more about blueys,am wondering whether they more better when they 1st become known,as bait shops hadnt had them in stock for so long,therefore they hadnt been kept deep frozen as long as they are now.It may be that now they are more popular,larger stocks are being kept for a lot longer affecting their affectiveness,just a thought.Still say you cant beat really fresh mackie Tite lines all vic

Hi Dabhand,
Not a bad session - at least you caught and more importantly, you got out to fish. I've not had a chance.
Did you fish the spot you fished before or elsewhere?

As for Blueys - I've given up on them ... never had much luck with them from the shore and always end up back with my reliable and trusted Lug, Squid and when funds permit - peeler.

Hope to catch up with you soon

Colin

Will do mate.
First week back to work - found getting up at 5am and not getting home until 7pm knackering!!!
Not done it for 3 months since I was made redundant - need to get back into the routine. Wife and kids dragging me off to watch Potter next week but I'm hoping the Saturday after I will be able to fish - keep it in mind if you can meet up.
Colin
