Got out for a bash

 After nearly 5 weeks away working in kalgoorlie work flew me home for the long weekend.  Arriving home about 9:30 pm hit the water at a not so early time of about 8 am. The water wasnt as calm as id hoped from the forecast but it did calm down nicely. Altho the weather was perfect in the end the fishing was hard with nothing wanting to play apart from 2 nice occy and a good size cuttly . The fish were nowhere to be found. Tried all our usual grounds for zip apart from 1 small blackass. 

Was having lunch with my parents sunday so a night fish was on the cards. The winds were almost non existant and the water was flat as . Managed 4  good runs from rays but no snapper. 1  medium ray that went fairly hard with about a 10 minuit fight. 1 monster of about 5to 6 feet accross the wings  1 shovel nose and the anothe huge run that had me guesing till a big eagle ray of about 5 feet accross came into view. Who needs the gym when you fighting these things.

All up it was great to be home foe a few days but back to kalgoorlie Monday arvo for work and definitely no fishing there. Hopefull it wont be that long between fishing next time.

 Your not wrong about the arm stretch. Im just glad we were only in 10 mtrs of water not more. . The big one broke the rod holder when it hit. Not getting the plastic ones any more.
