On the 26th of December.
Today was blessed by the weather.
But it will probably keep raining tomorrow too.
I went to Channel Island this morning.
There was no wind.
That meant that there was no fish-bite.
The tide was ebbing.
A breeze started blowing and ruffled the water.
The first fish was a nice sized rockcod.
This strong cod took a 115mm Mongrel.
The hook was damaged by this strong cod.
Nice restaurant sized rockcod on a Squidgy Pro Mongrel 115mm Aussie-Herring colour.
I exchanged a 115mm Mongrel into a 90mm Mongrel.
A sea barramundi doesn't like too much land water.
I had to cast the 90mm Mongrel farther.
By the way, do you know that a sea barramundi takes in much sea water from the sea.
On the other hand, a fresh-water barramundi doesn't take in fresh water very much.
I caught two 57cm barramundi.
Squidgy Pro Mongrel did good work again!

The final fish and chips of this year were very delicious. Beer-battered barramundi goes well with sunflower oil. I think.
