Went down to brighton jetty with my newfound singaporean angler! :D fish from 7.30-10.00am total we caught 2 squids and 1 cuttle fish. I caught only 1! ><
Rod and reel was a 19dollars combo from k mart, jigs were ranging 2-3aud/pc. I so miss daiso egi jigs.

I bet you were itching to fish ever since you touched down. :D Good start on the eging with a very cost effective setup, you'll be having squids for many dinners to come. :lol: Thanks for sharing your adventures from down under, do take care of your own safety when you fish!
