2013 NBSFC Billfish Shootout

So who's braving the shocking weather and heading out to find a few billies?

I hope more fish show than last year, i'm not putting up with that crap weather to hook 3 and land only 1 in 2.5 days! at least i have new clears this year

After last years cyclonic

After last years cyclonic weather I vowed never again!!!

I prefer to enjoy my fishing.  Less crowds, less dickheads on the radio and i feel I am getting too old to be getting up every day at 4am on my days off work.

I'm gonna go to work and bludge my arse off reading fishing websites

With ya there, caught enough pinheads and pointyheads over the years not to bother getting flogged for it.  Rain most of the weekend, if it aint coming over the gunwhales, it will be coming from the heavens.  Lol

 I have brains I turned around as soon as I realised it wasn't worth the risk. We didn't even wet a line. Comp has been cancelled now and rightly so. Scariest weather I've ever been in that's for sure
