Tag a Ray

Does anyone know how it went? I haven't seen a thing on FB and the TBSAC website doesn't seem to work anymore. Thinking of heading down but don't want to go blind.

Fishing was very patchy I think there was around 92 ray tagged over the two days from the shore and boat.
I fished the bay the whole week with very poor results. I’m heading back down Thursday so hopefully things pick up abit

I fished the area for 5 days last week (the week immediately after the Tag a Ray comp) and it was patchy. I did catch sting ray, thornback ray, tope, bass and flounder. It might sound good but no fish over 5lb weight, although a decent variety.

There must have been a lot of anglers fishing the comp because Landers tackle shop had run out of all the frozen baits for ray fishing. Luckily I already had a bucket of live crab, but could only supplement that with poor quality macky from a fishmongers.

Lot of line snags on one of the popular points on the south side of the bay, caused by oyster bags washed inshore and half buried in the sand - very annoying!

Cracking weather and great for the sun tan
