Good day out

 After being bricked a few times last trip out we loaded up with some heavier gear. Wich cwrtainly didnt go astray. 

First fish on board was a nice dhuie at 70cm aprox 7 1/2 kg

Second on by our sin brenden went 90 cm at around the 12kg mark and a new pb for him . He was stoked to land this one after being bricked a few times last trip out. 

Then Sandys turn with a nice gummy comming up .

With a few other small models amongst them that were released well . Also managed  3 tuna and a kg to top off the day.
