Augusta Success

 Well we launched early this morning and wind was up a bit so stayed close and caught a few whiting and squid. 

We had enough around 10 and headed in. After pulling the boat out I was chatting to another fishermen who had caught a dhuie and was heading home today. He pointed me in the direction and I asked miss 9 what she thought we should do, her reply was to relaunch so we did.

We got to the spot 15 mins later and started drifting, 2 drifts in and Miss 9 comes up solid on a 56cm shy, her first. She handled it well with just a little help from dad. An hour later on our last drift I had a nice hit on the 5 inch abrohlos tackle paddle tail and landed a 65 ish dhuie too.

Time to head back to camp 

Thanks to the guys who gave advice e on my other thread.

 Great catch Miss 9!  I love having my daughters (13 & 16) out on the boat and they love fishing, but squidding tops the list for them.
