We had plans for a crack at the Huss this weekend but again the Weather Gods had other ideas with a 25mph plus S/W wind forecast.
We had this covered & the 100 plus fresh worm Tony had pumped meant we could have another go for the Cod & Bass.
We were on the pier for 4.30pm which was just before low tide which would give us chance to have a look at any sandbars & gulleys
Think looked promising with a big sea running & a couple of the local shrimpers out with there trammel nets

So we grab one of the front pegs & get our gear & brews sorted as we wait for the tide, rigs are our usual 5/0 pulleys.
Just after 6pm our 1st worm offerings are sent out & we sit back & wait whilst being battered by the wind which was slowly increasing with the building tide.
Within 15 minutes Tony has a decent bite & soon has a schoolie on the score card

things are off to a good start!
An hour or so later with no further action we decided to move round the back- casting back towards the shore but comfy as we would be out of the wind.
Baits continually came back untouched but finally an hour before high water i get a bite & reel in a blank beating Doggie

then its back to untouched baits nearly every cast.
We persevered, catching the odd fish till an hour or so after high tide before we sacked it.

This week Tony has the bragging rights with a Bass, a Doggie & a Whiting.
I had a Doggie & 2 Whiting.
Shane had a Doggie & a Whiting.
We'll see what next weekend brings.
Tight lines.

Well Rick looks like we beat you this weekend. We caught plenty of doggies and dab at our usual place (Red Bank Road) Bait was live yellow tails tipped with squid. We caught more fish on the flood. We were aware of the forecast that said the wind would pick up at high tide. We fished the Sunday morning tide. The wind certainly did pick up, we think you can't fish the wall or beach above 15m.p.h. so after two hours of the ebb we called it a day. One bonus we retrieved an anchor buoy (second one this year) another item for the man cave.

Cheers Ebo,
Another month or so & i'll be happy with a good blow & a big sea but there's still a good chance of a few more Huss yet- just need that wind to stay below 10 or 15mph & give the sea a chance to settle down a bit.
Tight lines.

Hiya Southshore,
I reckon we were a day too late with our sesh as the pier apparently fished well on the Saturday- Sods law i could only fish the Sunday night.
Well done on having a decent sesh on the wall.
Tight lines.

Tough session mate, would have been a lot tougher if you were on a beach though. It must be nice getting tucked in behind there out of the wind, hot tea etc. You've got a great spot there

Hiya VB,
We're a bit spoilt really as no matter what the wind direction there's always somewhere on the pier to get out of it.
Can't grumble too much about the slow sesh as we've had some cracking do's on there this year so probably due a grueller or two anyway.
Tight lines.

Hiya Mark,
When the weather's like that beating the blank is just reward & any fish is well earned.
Looking at the forecast it should be settling down for another sesh after tomorrow/Fridays Hoolie.
Tight lines.
