My first King George Whiting

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

 

Went out early from Hillarys on Sunday, and drifted across the weed near Little Island.  Caught three nice squid.  Saved the hoods for salt and pepper squid on Monday and used the legs as fresh bait.

 

Picked up this 40 cm KGW (my first) out from Scarborough, and a few sandies further out from Hillarys.  Very happy that I didn't waste any money on crap bait and caught it instead....

Thats the way to get them Randall. Fresh bait wins all the time. They go hard for their size and taste great. Wont be long untill you get a few in  the 50cm+ size.

Hey all you knockers!  When I jab myself with a hook or slip with the fishing knive and cut a finger....   I bleed PURPLE and VERY PROUD of it, so lay off the hat comments.  It take pride of place on the dash of the boat and is more on my head than off it!

 

Cheers for the comments about the fish!

nuthin wrong with the hat!

 People who follow other teams just lack the courage to take on the awesomeness of being a Docker Diehard. It isn't always easy, but once yer blood has turned purple there's no other way to live! I'm with you Randall, bleed purple!
