Thanks, caught quite a few but fishing with 15lb maxima, purglas 350/1 and a KP had a bit of a challenge lifting them up the Dollies on the South Pier so dropped a lot.... Lesson learnt.


Plenty of Blacktails, Stumpies,Karenteen and Sliver Breams were smashing us before the coppers could get locked on. Need to think of an idea to keep these small ones away,they just waste the bait.


also notice once we started tagging some of the other species everything just went dead not a bite, Moved to another hole fish on, once we started tagging in the new hole, it went dead again. This happen on 4 different occasions in 4 different holes. Think the tag made them look like they were being invaded by aliens or some weird species  :lolo: [size=78%] [/size]
[/size]
Actually leads me to this question  .... Has anyone experienced something  like this whilst tagging?

I thought South Pier was closed to fisherman?

Release them on the other side of the pier!. It's not a tagging thing, it's a releasing thing

Point noted Grumpy, Port net did approach us once when we started a fire and asked us to put it out  other than that if you keep the place tidy and fish responsibly. No hassles.


Only issue is the trains are never on time or never arrive at all.

Cool man. I'm fishing West this weekend and thought about South Pier while I am there.
