Family fish on Sunday

 Took the misses and kids out around Garden Island on Sunday was hoping to get a little behind it but when i was out there the swell was pretty big so didn't feel confident to stay so just tucked in behind the reef. Setup abit of a burley trail and got the misses and kids baited up there were hundreds of large gardies in the trail and they were onto them straight away, they were upset when i told them that we weren't allowed to keep them some were huge getting hooked on whole mulies and gang hooks. We caught a feed of herring and i got afew flounder which i thought looked like there wasn't enough meat to bother keeping they were over the 25cm limit though. The highlight of the day was watching a seal come into the trail and just started eating flounder after flounder out of our trail my son got a small video of it on my phone which was good. Great day in lovely sunny winter weather

 My son loves it out there he is always keen to go there we had pots out there till anzac day, was checking it out to put some out there in the winter but the swell was much heavier than a month ago not so sure. The kids are hanging out to go to shore there i havent done that yet. The crabs in Mandurah tho Kiky are so much easier to handle this time of year nowhere near as fast or aggressive as in January.
