Fished Apollo Bay 2 mornings ago...awesome conditions.
Flat as a tack.
First cast had a nice calamari follow the jig in...thought it was a little shy and would not take the jig but when i took it away it got mad and went for it.....Bang!!!! On with a nice calamari right next to the pir. Very visual...saw the whole thing unfold only 2 metres away. I was using very light tackle and the drag was not set but I managed to get it onto the pier without too much problem.

Fished for another 15 mins and had no luck, so i chucked it in.

Amazing how the first cast is often the one that gets the fish.

Also shows there is a fine line between no success and doing OK.

know what you mean BWH as all my squid fishing is sight fishing and sometimes when your down the rocks scooping a squid on your jig another squid is right up it's mates ass and you just unhook the squid on your line and just plop the jig in front of the other one and it grabs it with glee and just lift it out of the water with the scoop but if it's a big squid it's going to take some line off you....but shyt it's worth seeing them up that close and in action...wouldn't miss it for the world.
