G'day all. I havent been out in the boat for a while and want to take some friends from Europe out for a whale watch. Are there many around at the moment, particularly NOR?

 Thanks, John.

 Whales in 27M Have a drift and sometimes you will hear them before you see them weather permitting, KG gear out during the ban.

 I'm a devil for punishment

 I'm a devil for punishment doing this as our boat was lifted right out of the water by one of the big buggers just off Rowley Rock off Dampier some years ago. Definitely needed a few fortifying Bundies and some new undies after that I can tell you!

 Saw heaps north west of ocean reef on thursday. On the 1st 40 metre contour, swimming, broaching close to the boat. Great to see



Don't spend all your money on beer, boats, and fishing. Save some to spend foolishly

last Monday there were a few pods just behind the 3 mile off hillarys, about the 24m line or a mile behind the reef to give you an idea
