a perfect start to the morning, no wind no rain and most importantly
every one present and accounted for, lots of banter and avoiding topics
such as locations and tactics.
Melbourne has really turned on the
conditions in this round with the overcast conditions and low wind
giving teams a perfect day for casting at squid, by the sounds of things most teams are heading due south to look for the all important big
squid that have been elusive over the past few weeks in the hope of
getting a big bag fast and early allowing them to upgrade when they can.
From the start it looked like it was going to be a race as to who could
get to the southern end of the bay and secure a good drift location in
some tight patchy reef with advantage paid to team Bigtime - Megabass
and mrfisho.com with twin Cootacraft Gunshots a known high performance
vessel. At the end of the day though it may come down to the numbers and
as we have seen in the past consistent bags will always place teams
higher on the list. We wish all the teams well for day 1 and later in
the day we will post the results of the first day weigh in.
