A couple of pb's for us today

 With the forcast looking ok early in the morning and better as the day went on an early start was a go.

Decided to go out a bit further than normal out to where Sandy got her pb dhuie. No dhuies today but the first fish on board was a pb bauldie for Sandy .not huge compared to some but happy as a proverbial. 

Went back for another drift over the same area and this time a pb bauldie for me. As these are my mums fave fish we sent a pic straight to her just to tease . 

The rest of the morning wasnt anything to right home about . We tried all over looking for new ground. All we managed was a small bbum and undersize pinks. As the water near on glassed off we thaught why not just stay out and relax and hope for a few more fish.

We ended up starting to make our way in early arvo with a stop at our kg grounds on the way in. Sure enough as the lines hit the bottom we were on with a couple of nice kg . Nothing else on the drift so went back and another 2nice kg hit the lines . Went dead after that apart from a massive hookup for sandy that bricked her real quick. Thinking it may be a dhuie but who knows. Sandy got busted off there a couple of weeks back by a monster dhuie so could be the same resident. Its currently wearing some jewelry. 

We called it a day and cruised in on a leasurly 25 knots.  

In the end we had a great day out and a couple of pb's and new species for us down in mandurah.

Odd but all the baldies down Mandurah way

Mon, 2018-04-09 08:48

 That I have caught are that colour but  because of the depth have never dived the area where we used to get them but would think flat plate coral might predominate the bottom structure
