We headed out on Wednesday morning to specifically target Springer, starting off sight fishing, moving around the harbour searching for any activity. It was relatively quiet until something changed and we were surrounded by literally hundreds of Springer all around us. Then the adrenalin kicked in (don’t mind The VeerMans excitement and competitive chants, he does not get to fish often).

The were teasing us all around the boat but wanted nothing to do with us or our lures, persistence and changing lures several times got The Crow (Lionel) the bite, but as fast as they made their appearance, they were gone. We pushed on trying different areas and managed to get a variety of species ending off the day on 5 species: Springer, Kob, Grunter, Gar and some soul to end of the session #SoleFish.
