Hey guys, just got back from an enjoyable week with friends in Exmouth.
Our original intention was to drag up a mates dingy but after a few mechanical issues in the lead up we decided against that and hired a boat
for 2 days from Exmouth Boat hire who looked after us
After a few days of hanging out with our better halves, Snorkelling and wasting time (drinking) we got into some fishing.
After launching from Tanta's (new ramp is great) and sneaking out the reef we pretty much had no idea where to go so just had a troll
and looked for some ground for a bottom bash.
Trolling was slow so no highlights there but we did manage these.
After a precession of small Emporers Dane (Daneox) nailed a neat Coronation.
Then had a hell of a time landing his fish of the trip this Chinaman.
Personally my highlight was catching my 2 PB Coral Trout in consecutive drifts.
CT 1 @64cm
Then my new PB CT @70cm!
Bagged us out and couldn't be happier!
Unfortunatly not much else other than 1 size Red Emp and a heap of the usual Red Throats and other NW Snappers.
Cheers guys and now I can't wait to return in July!
