Ningi Creek today

Postby Feral » Tue May 11, 2010 3:24 pm

I had been toying with the idea of giving Ningi creek a run, Tomca did a report the other day on the kayak site where the Flatties were on the chew there, so that sealed it for me, time to chase some flathead. So with the weather forecast for today being perfect I develop a problem with my eyes - I couldn't see myself going to work!

So launched about an hour after high tide and had a bit of an explore around the island and up in to the creek area itself. Nothing huge, rotten bait (bream) kept getting in the way of catching flatties, but for once the bream put up a bit of a fight, one even getting a couple of clicks out of the drag on my light bass gear.

Tried lures and plastics, one hit on the plastic by a small flattie that was not even hooked, just clamped down on the tail of the plastic and spat it out when he got close to the yak, (could see the hook in front of his nose the dopey bugger) everything else caught on scorpion 35's and a micro mullet.

Good to see the scorpions out for a swim <: ... a very underrated lure for bream/bass but a consistent lure .. and you can afford to lose a few !! Thanks for the report mate .. do you have a lease for your paddle? Or some other system

The curly lead in the bottom of the yak is actually a paddle leash, but I use a bit of clothes line rope for the paddle, (you can see a bit of it in one of the photos; dark blue 3mm nylon rope) I save the fancy leash for when I want to leash the rod! Although I have been known to attach it to the lip grippers and use it to tow big fish in shallow so I can get out and deal with them safely!

Feral,

It's interesting how with all these new expensive Japanese hard body lures available today that the humble Micro Mullets and Scorpions still catch plenty of fish. :smile:

Nip. ;-)
