Dhuies and Minkies

Quick run out Sunday morning in spectacular conditons, averaged 35 knots on the run out and back which made for a quick morning fish. 


Lots of dhuies around, got our bag in less than an hour, then headed for a KG fish, no KGs but Den got this on a No.1 kg long shank hook.....released well. We were not keen on hooking more dhuies and doing unnecesary damage, so we headed back to Hillarys for bacon and eggs and coffee breaky at the Marina. 

Heaps of Minkie Whales around, they would not leave us alone, we had about 10 hang around the boat for 20 minutes checking us out.

Show up good on the sounder.

 Well done. Bet your mate was holding his breath that the hook won't break when he hooked up. Can always get big fish on small hooks , and that's a beauty
