Two Boat Assault on the 3 Mile

Two Boat Assault on the 3 Mile

With Dad over on holidays and Gully keen to try one of his in close spots, we decided an early fish was on the cards this morning. There was going to be 5 of us so we took the 2 small boats out and after some flat battery problems we finally anchored at 6am over some shallow reef. There was a fair bit of early action on the pinkies and with Dad not having a RBL, we were bagged out within about 30mins. He's lived in South Oz all of his life and had to come to Perth to get his first snapper and they were a pretty good pair to start with too.

Yeah was good to see Lucky Tim get completely outfished for a change :)

Hopes were not too high in the morning as out of 3 batteries (1 in mates boat, 2 in Tims) all were flat. We carried a spare which we gave to Tim and we pull started our motor.

All was good in the end though with some good fish landed between both boats. We lost 2 crackers and finally got 1 of about 4kg before they shut down. Great fun
