Chopper in Crystal Bay – Newport

Chop chop chopper ain’t much chop!

I just caught the last half hour of light today but hey, any time with a wet line is better than none. Given the short time frame I thought I may as well try out Crystal Bay, Newport, along the southern shore. I’ve fished this spot years ago in my boat and caught bream, flathead and even trevally while throwing small soft plastics around the moorings, but I have never fished it from the shore.

I also tried out the 2lb Sunline Super FC sniper fished straight through. It’s been so long since I fished fluorocarbon straight through and I had forgotten how much stretch there is in fluorocarbon when compared to braid. 2Lb (0.9kg) really is ridiculously light line but so much fun!
