Finally !!!!

 Well after almost 2 months without getting the boat wet other than the rain. 

We finally got out and what a day. Couldnt have ordered a better day. Just enough wind to drift without the sea anchor and very littlr current which made it easy to get the drifts set up right concidering a pro had hammered our grounds we fish with pots. 

Only prob i had was getting totally outfished by Sandy.  First 3 drifts resulted in a dhuie and 2 blackass. Then it went quiet for a while . A few big bustoffs later  Sandy nailed a nice gummy. Unfortunately she was carrying a litter of pups which we didnt realise until i cut her open. A positive side was all 14 pups were well developed and i would guess were ready to be bought into the world.  All of them swam off really well. 

After 1 more blackass again nailed by Sandy we moved into our kg spot where i finally got my first keeper that went just under a kilo on the lie detector. In the end i got 3 kgs and  1 king wrasse for my mum. Sandy got the rest . Oh well better  luck next time.

All up it was great to get out on the briney for a change.

IMO they are the best eating of the catch you have there, looks like you had a great day out on the water well worth the wait you have had to endure.

 cheers all. 

definately some good feeds in that lot. 

 Megladon. not sure what i think is best eating here . depends on your taste , kg or gummy . certainly going to be a tough decision what to eat first, probably kg as i find shark is even better after freezing

 It was great to see them all swim off strong. After a c section delivery. All were about 8" long . Would have been good to get a pic of 1 but priority was to get them in the water
