Finally I was able to land two large Garfish last Friday. the weather was great , sea was calm. The fish put on a decent 2~3 minute jump and splashing and darting about zig zag finally, calmly came close to shore and then one more last minute swashbuckling, with all the prehistoric tooth and then all over.
a few fellow anglers (including a street cat who i noticed came running towards the fish) all helped me to land it.
was good fun.
Looks like its the season now for Garfish. plenty of them swimming around.
