It didn't take long to get into a fish, the Spro Trout Shad doing the business and proving too much for the fingerling Pollack to resist. I think Paul was into a similar fish soon after. We carried on fishing the same, short stretch of the long, back wall of the Harbour for an hour or so, with a couple knocks but no fish connecting. I took to slow swimming the bait along the bottom of the wall, keeping it tight to the bottom as well. Had a small bite, which went solid and then proceeded to give me my best fight on the light gear yet. A seriously valiant fight, plenty of dives and runs - Ripping the Varivas LightGame # 0.4line off the reel in short, brutish bursts. Once subdued enough, Paul hand lined the Pollack up the wall, ready for the photo shoot. Came in at a respectable 35cm.
I'm seriously looking forward to this Light Game approach growing locally, as at present, I'm flying solo whenever fishing this technique. I'm enjoying it whenever I can, but it's definitely more fun in a group.
