Two Javilin grunters at R/Bay on Saturday


Catch report for Sat.

I launched late at 07h00 and went straight to caravan park reef , with my first down I picked up the smaller mof grunter, the bait was pushed up the line and I just pulled it down and caught the second fish with my second down and with the same bait. After that it went quite. I caught both fish  before 07h45. It looks as if they were there very early and I just got the end of the run. I used squid only and there were no sharks. It looks as if the moff Grunters might be back, I moved a number of times but did not even get a bite afterwards, and stopped fishing at 09h00.
