off to stock the freezer , been enjoying these great days on the water
How did you go..?hope you are feasting on some lovely fresh tropical fish..
The weather has been magic this week down here.
Decided thursday was the pick wind wise so put off a couple of jobs and customers and pulled my 11yr old fishing mad son out of school and headed out wednesday evening for a couple of nights at the reef..
Only trouble was the fish were on the bite and we filled the 210 litre esky by lunchtime next day and had to come home ...great fun watching my boy struggling to land nannigai one after the other...caught some spanish on floaters and live bait as well but the boy was reluctant to take the rod for them.. hopefully next time he will have a bit more
confidence..just magic watching him mature into a little man..
Wind was 10-12 knots going out and dropped off to 5-6 knots next morning...varied from Sou'west in the morning swinging around more Sou'east in the arvo..overnight was very mild and despite the clear skies not really cold at all..
Its days like that this that make life in the tropics so special.. and the boy even wanted to take in his teachers favourite fresh mangrove jack fillets to her today ,so that was a nice gesture to see as well..
Hopefully we will see few more windless days in between the high pressure systems from now on..
