Headed over last wednesday for a few days, taking a couple of my kids.
We didnt do alot of fishing this time though we chucked the pots in and bagged out pretty well straight away, and did a bit of trolling for trout close to the island.
Got dhuies, painted sweetlip (I like my neighbours so let them go :-) sweetlip, trout (not quite size) and shark mackeral.
Trip was mainly to do a bit of exploring and catch up with my old boss over there. Plus the kids just have a blast!
mmm-who should I give this to???
this "adventuring business" is hard yakka!
kid sized trout
Trip home was a bit messy, we were going to stay til saturday but as we had to be home midmorning and a strong easterly was forecast, at the last minute on friday arvo we decided to take off.
We got a third of the way back, 12 knt SE so stopped for a fish. By the time we got going again, it was "hello 25kt S/SE"!
Kids handled it fine as always though and we rolled into Hells Gates at 5pm.
