Day 4 done and dusted

 Gotta say today was mych better wind wise. Got out early than other day and got off to a good start. I managed a pb red at 6 1/2 kg and another at 5 1/2. Sandy also got her share with 3. 2 a decent size and one smaller which went back to live another day. Brenden wasnt to happy as the taxman took his share. Also managed a first of a cobia that went 10 1/2 kg. Gees they go hard. Ended with a nice mixed bag.

The F%@#$(g flies are out of control ! 

We were booked in for a week in Coral Bay and two weeks at Osprey . Most of the peeps in Coral Bay were either wearing fly nets or waving like crazy folk . Open your van door and fifty of the little bastards would invade and make life pretty miserable

Fast forward 1400 k in the car

Pleased to say there’s bugger all flies up here in Broome .... :) 

Just Crocodiles shutting down Cable Beach at the moment !

Fly nets

Thu, 2019-05-16 07:14

 Add fly nets to your list, they little barstewards are in plague proportions the moment you step outside in Carnarvon and I'd guess Gnaraloo is going to be worse.

Not many big spanglies?

Fri, 2019-05-17 15:54

 They used to be in plague proportions but then that was .......oh my goodness.......41 years ago .....hell I am getting OLD

But can still remember the huge cobia I caught whilst beach fishing, smashed my wife's finger when she literally dived on it in the shore break.

 Nice catches, do they still dump all the frames n guts at the tip in Coral Bay? Maybe they should start burley manufracturing up there.
