Caught a dude with air tanks

I Thought id share our day today as i cant stop laughing after doing some google earthing yesterday and the ground near Penguin island looked great .Some weed and some nice sandy patches .Must be flatty country so my cutie and i planned to leave bout 830 to catch the last 2 hours of the run in and then fish the change .In the car with coffee and 6 jackets and beaney no bait as im thinking that it will be blowie central.Nice cruise down there got there bout 930 .Wind was fresh lol temp bout 8c I put a zereck shad on my sweetys rod and a double clutch on mine with Nor easter bout 20 knots it was a bit tough to punch our lures out there .So we decided to head for the point in the distance .point Peron had a bag of pre made berley,had no idea were to fish but it all looked good.The first rocky outcrop was our stop .Nice breaze offshore which helped with casting.No action anywhere a few birds but not feeding.A couple of dudes prepared to go for a dive .They disappeared and only just 2 lines of bubbles could be seen . i had casted out a good cast and my wife said love wouldn't it be funny if you catch him lol.We had a laugh .Then bugger me as i started to wind in my line was going back out .Ohhh shit ive hooked him .I started to yell loudly hoping they might hear ,as line peeled from my reel.All we could do was piss our selves laughing and hope he realized that he was hooked .After a few minuets he popped up and gave a wave .Then it took 10 mins to unwrap the line .They both did an arch and came in An english man came up to us and said bet thats the biggest fish you have caught allday .All good no fish not even a blowie lol. Another awesome day with my gorgeous wife exploring your beautiful part of our lucky country.Will be leaving Perth heading to Darwin soon so looking forward to actually catching a feed.

Yer your right how stupid is someone to swim in the same direction as i had been casting for 40 mins while they got ready to enter the water .Why not swim the other direction .Thats what i would have done .

Yes i did see them and they saw were i was casting but instead of flipping the opposite direction they continued towards where my lure was,I didnt keep casting .I thought they had gone wide but they obviously hooked up my loose line somewhere .I was using a lure that floats .
