Kosi Bay Rock Salmon

I was amped to get a decent rock salmon (river snapper) as Kosi has some real lunkers and is the best place to land them as there is not much structure for them to cut you off on. My chance came one afternoon when we were coming back from fishing first lake and we noticed a shoal of big snapper congregated next to the mouth of one of the channels. I cast a Rapala X-Rap Walk 13cm surface stickbait at them and slowly walked it over the shoal. The water exploded and I was on. I go the fish right next to the boat and the hook pulled. I quickly cast at the shoal again and went vas a second time. This time the hook stayed in and I was very stoked to land a 10lb fish, which Ewan tagged for me.

Ewan was kind enough to sit back and let me have a full go at these fish, as he could see how amped I was and knows that this is my favourite estuary species. The next one I hooked was an absolute bomber, it pulled line like a steam train and gave me a great fight. It was quite a different colour from the others, they have very variable colours. This one weighed in on the boga at 15lb’s which is a seven kilo fish!
