Thanks Tim I caught it just

Thanks Tim I caught it just over a week ago on the 16th, bit of a late post (problems with the computer).

Yeah Colin she's always keen to see, touch and prod any fish or crays we bring home.

Hi Kane, was  out from Two Rocks. Most of the day was a bit slow first fish of the day was a good size baldie, but being the first the first baldie I've caught that hasn't chewed his guts, he got freedom as a prize.

It was a couple of very slow hours later I caught this 11kilo duhie on a drift bait in 45+mts, also got busted of twice and caught another 6-7 kilo duhie, which went back in good health as i was fishing light.

Didn't get much more for the rest of the day only a small sambo (good fun on light gear), still beats workingLaughing

Good going Nick!

Looks like your daughter won't need too much encouragement to enter the wonderful world of Fishing Nick!

When we were out yesterday and came back into <60m water, I wanted to try drift baiting, but the molloy hawks were just too thick and hungry (they were doing a lot of rig diving).

Best way of enticing a good dhui, me thinks.

Solid fish Nick. Good to meet you the other day aswell.

Three days without it and I get a little jumpy


The best reason for doing what's right today is tomorrow.

Thanks guys, I'am just

Thanks guys, I'am just taking baby steps with her, but she does seem to have a natural knack for fishing judging by her style when we go to Mindarie jettys fishing for blowies (I think the trick is to leave as soon as they show signs of bordem, working so far)

Got to agree with you Colin drift baiting sure pays of, and when the fishing is slow and the birds are hungry at least you can still catch somethingWink

It was good to meet you the other day Scott, just wish you had bought some of those marron in with yaLaughing. Hope you get out deep soon

G'day Honsu No worries about

G'day Honsu

No worries about the fillet, if i forget just remind me when i get there (they may be half cooked after spending the day in the uteSmile)

The ride home was basically at WOT with the waves and swell being at just the right angle, going along the side and not up and over. The ride out was very crash bang and wet once I got out a bit, so ended doing a slow one out.
