Took the yak out to Ballarat's Lake Wendouree yesterday after hearing a few promising reports of trout going well.

ended up with 3 good browns, one going almost 50cm and they all fell to the Pontoon 21 Gagagoon 55 in Golden Perch pattern. i got busted off by two fish including one cracker that jumped only a couple of metres from a mate in his kayak and then it wrapped me around the rowing lane marker buoys and the 3lb fluro didn't stand a chance with a 5lb+ fish and rope!! I dropped another (it also tried to wrap me up) and missed a few solid hits.

All in all it was a great morning on the water and i forgot how well and dirty trout fight :D

I'm in the middle of editing a video, i'll post when i get it done.
