Sundays Fun

Launched at Mindarie and were on our way just before sunup. Headed out to the 40-50m grounds with a nice E helping. Beautiful day.

The fishing was a bit slow all day and a lot of moving around was required. I have heard a few reports of Baldies being on the chew so we targeted mainly our baldie grounds, flat coral areas, but they were nowhere to be seen.

By lunch time we had 2 Snapper on board with a few little models released and we changed targets and headed to some previous Dhu marks. Bluey, tattooed bloke in the photo's, has been out with us a few times but is not overly experienced. He made the comment when out there that he really likes the way things get sorted quickly when a nice fish comes alongside. Fish netted, unhooked, dispached and bleed, in esky. He couldnt understand why we ignored his cry for help when he pulled up a bloody big eel. Thing was jagged in the back of the head and had done the typical 3000 twists wrapping itself around, in and through his patanoster rig to the point where sinker to braid was 15cm long.. Lol     You caught it you fix it.

Called it a day when we realized we would only have enough beer left to get us back to the ramp (bad planning there). Ended up with 3 snapper and a whiskery shark for the esky. Good winds and a bloody nice day out with a few mates.
