Almost Exxy Trip

 After the Eagles/Collingwood footy match on Sunday, a few of the Exxy 2000 boys got on the piss, which resulted in a spur of the moment Exxy trip being planned for Wednesday......2 days time......more of a wet dream...

 

Two boats, my 235 Whaler and Troys 235 Whaler  (aka "The Mule").....

 

Anyhow, we got as far as Jurien, and decided it Exxy was too far given the Exmouth forecast update not as good as we were hoping. So stopped and fished Jurien on Wednesday. It blew its arse off in the morning, but still got our bag of baldies but it was hard work in the slop. 

 

After a few beers that night in Jurien, we reflected on being battered by the easterly and the forecast for Thursday was lookng similar, so we decied a sleep in and bacon and eggs breaky and head home early was better for us weak pricks.......a 3 days Exxy trip turned into a 1 day Jurien trip......getting old......

 

After seeing the ocean at 11 am, we ended up chucking the boats back in the water on the way home, did not even take the oversie signs off the boat... just in time for the southerly buster.....bugger. But man did we hit a hot dhuie bite! 

 

After being busted off by 3 big fish that felt like serious dhuies, we upgraded rigs and Bodie landed a nice dhu whioch we dropped on the deck and we both dropped straigt back in, Bodie hooked up straight away and I loaded up on a nice double header. As we were busy sorting out the release weight for the healthiest 2 dhuies, Troy swung "The Mule" in on our drift and they both hooked up, landing another 2 nice dhuies. 10 minutes of madness.

Great end to a short "Exxy" trip! 

 

4 dhuies on deck on my Whaler.....wheres the release weight!!!

 

Troy and Daz on "the Mule", Daz hooked up, Troy had already landed his.

Only thing better than a hot dhu bite is a Collingwood SMASHING! We were front row just inside the 50, and Fark me did we tear Maine apart! Pretty sure he cried. Again.

 

Not sure if the big one on the deck is the buck, but if it's not, there's a goody on that spot fo sho!

Was a quick but good trip!!

 

we made 2 mistake and 1 good decision.

Mistake 1; listening to "The Mule's" crew and not going all the way to exi

Mistake 2; Not going fishing out of Jurien on day 2 (old weak bastards!)

Good decision; Dropping in the drink on the way home for a quick dash out and hitting the schooling dhus!!

 

Nothing better than the colour purple on the deck!
