MYSELF, BOOM BOOM, KIMBO AND CAPTAIN SHIMANO ALL WENT TO ETIVE ON SUNDAY,hired a boat. The day started off slow, only a few whiting caught, and one spurrie, just as we thought it was going to get better it got worse, nothing alll day, then about 5 oclock kimbo took a thornie, then another, then another,i got a few whiting, gurnards, the captain had a couple of whiting, by this time boom boom was panicking as he hadnt had anything all day and knew we would all take the **** all the way home, blankety blank , you know what i mean.
Then it happened ?????? MADMAX got a take, struck, and started to reel in,this was a heavy bugger pulling me all over the place, i continued to reel in the bugger, with a struggle) , now i was using a 50lb rod and it was practically bent over in two, 30 lb braid, wire trace, with a nice bit of mackie , anyway its nearly at surface after about 10 mins, when PING , the f***er was off , i could have jumped overboard as it appears my knot failed on the braid/swivel. All that effort, pain was wasted because of one lousy knot. I KNOW THIS SOUNDS LIKE ONE OF THOSE FISHY TALES BUT ITS TRUE, THIS WAS A BLEEDIN MONSTER, im a strong guy and believe me i was struggling to pull this out.bit annoyed as this would have been my biggest catch, couple of the guys reckon maybe big conger, or big thornie,but hey ill be back to get it.
We fished till 8.00pm and to the relief of boom boom he managed to bag a couple of thornies too so we couldnt take the **** after all .weather started off great then wind picked up, but it was a good day out no matter what happened.
