good weekend

 went to rotto for the weekend took friday off and came back sunday what a trip we got there around 11am friday and fished the north side of the island drifting in around 10-20m we picked up a few small but sized dhueys 55 - 65cm then the missus landed a nice baldie and i got this kg all fish where released we then went back to our mooring at geordie bay where we got the bbq going few beers some steaks and a squid jig under a float out after a bout 5 mins the rod buckled over on a decent calamari got about 3 more of them before the sun went down bait for tommorow sorted!


the sun went down and it was lovely kicking back and then.....the storm hit ! all night was bloody rough wasnt a good nights sleep at all haha the next day we went out fishing no dhueys around but plenty of yellow tail kings we spent hours following them chucking stick baits chucking bait everything at them i even chucked the missus at em but they were just not hungry.


drifted a bit more with no luck so went to thompson bay for a bite to eat and relaxed for the rest of the night 


on sunday we thought we would  try get a few fillets to take home we started around the west end of rotto and worked direction bank all the way until mindarie with not one good fish hahah had a whale come about 1 metre from the boat and gave us a little show so that was a nice suprise. 


all in all was a really good weekend and cant wait to do the rotto trip again fads next time i think though.

 sounds like a great weekend. its not the result that counts its the journey you take getting there. would have been a weekend to reflect on in the future.

 Those rotto kingies are fussy af. Seen them schooling on the surface a few times, wont touch anything attached to big enough hook or mono over 10lb. Will only take small cubes of mulie thrown in as burley or on the whiting rod, good fun watching 2000 size reels smoke for a few seconds before PING!


Fishing and catching are two different things. But i want to learn how to catch.
