May Coral Bay pics added

Been a bit slack with this years report from May but will give overview;


- weather was up their with the best! fished 7 of 9 days, could have been 8 but were too rooted!

- water temp plus 27oC!! past experience told us this isnt good

- got just under 20kg each but had to work as hard as ever for them

- no great stress though as better than sitting on shore

- sharks were not too much of problem, maybe lost 6 fish all trip

- fished anywhere from 60m to 200m, from well south, to well north

- had the new HDS Carbon fitted for the trip with 1kW transducer

- worked well but to be honest up to 100m didnt show much different (albeit greater clarity) than my 10yo Navman 4500

- reds were hard to find, only 6 whole trip and normally would average that per day

- caught a nice sail in 60m on bottom rig 

- few squid thrown in 

- all in all beer was cold, caught some fish, had the pleasure of seeing Helen (who contrary to what she says was misbehaving badly!) and had a great trip!
