caught this today at matilda bay on a pink micro mullet. 52 centimetres and very chunky. estimated 1.5-2kilos. thought it was pretty likely it was a female so released it.

stoked Smile 

this is also my upgrade for the junior landbased comp Smile

sorry about image quality. it was taken on a phone

Great Swan River Flattie

Good fish. Great to see the flatfish moving into the river.

Good Tip: Always take your bloody camera fishing

Three days without it and I get a little jumpy


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

Good bartail lizard for the swan. I like the stunned faces on the people in the background of the pic.
