Title: Condamine Dry Spell Broken, in a big way.
Post by: Stutz on July 31, 2015, 08:59:55 AM
Hey all,

I picked up a wilderness 140 last week, After fishing the condamine for nearly a year and donuting everytime, I decided to go out to a hole I hadn't fished in awhile
So I set off this morning with new kayak in the back and a orange and purple Kuttafurra tied on. (dropped 3 fish on the dumaresq a week or so back so wanted to try it out again)

And, once again. This hole has brought back my love for the Condamine River. 3 fish in a matter of 40 or so minutes. First one actually broke my rod from about the 3rd eyelet from the top, but i decided to still fish, and I'm glad i did!

First fish went around the 60 mark, not a bad start


Not even 10 minutes later I was on again, with the same lure, but broken rod. This one would have been about the 75-80cm mark

Then after dealing with him, I put in another 4-5 casts and came up hard on this sucker, Felt he was alot heavier so was doubting my rod was going to hold up, thankfully it did. He would of went the 77-82ish or so. Was struggling to hold him up.

So I think that is a good way to break in the new Kayak?
