 Nice work. I was thinking about heading down with the kids for the first time ever with a few nets. Not keen on the weather though.

I took mine out in 16kn SW winds a few weeks ago and it was surprisingly doable and I was driving around at 30knots. Just make sure you have a hook ready for when you miss a pot

 Weather looking less favourable on Saturday but we'll see. I guess we could drop pots in pretected water as a token effort. Rain will be a game changer with a 1 and 4 year old in a centre console.
