My fishing weekend 17-18 Oct

Hey all,

So instead of creating 2 threads, I thought I'd just condense my weekend into 1 :)

Saturday

Up at 4am and leave the missus in bed to go and get in a boat with Benno and Jeff F :huh::P:lol:

Drive to the ramp from Benno's house and meet Jeff F there. Amazing... he only brought 2 rods :D Launch at fishermans island ramp and head out. The tide was ripping through under the bridge just off the ramp, but made it past that and headed to mud. Started off sounding out for patches to fish in hopes of snaps, grassys or anything like that.... we got nothing.... maybe a couple of small ones.

In frustration of the wind we headed off to another corner of mud maybe a km away and started there. I scored a 34.5cm snapper on a 3" gulp shrimp :) sent him back in the drink. Here we kept feeding the small fish and finally Jeff F caught a legal snap.... can't remember how big it was... I also caught a good sized diver whiting on 3" gulp worm :)

Went quiet there so we headed back to the original spot for nothing...

Then figured we'd try finesse bream/flattie fishing right up against the island, but had a quick stop at one of the shallow markers on the way in and cast netted up a school of hardiheads.

Worked 1 side of mud and got Benno onto his very first bream on plastics and it was a keeper at 32 to the tip :) A few more hits and follows but no hook ups.

Went back again to the original spot and anchored up for a fish. I was fishing a 3" worm again when hit hit hit... strike..snap :( my daiwa team zero rod snapped in half... keep winding in and its another good sized diver whiting... but dammit I snapped my rod.

Nothing happening so I had a sneaky sleep at the front of Bens boat, called it quits at ~230pm. Drove back in and the guys gave me some tips on boating and general spots around the mouth of the river in prep for my new boat :)

Boat cleaned and back at Bens by ~4pm. Took him for a spin in my car and let him have a crack at it too. Ben found out how fun 9000rpms can be.

Sunday

Up at 615 and out of the house by 645 with the missus in tow to meet up with BigTez for the maiden voyage/handover/schooling on what was his last trip on his boat, and my first on my boat :P

Launch at Deep Water Bend by 8am and I get to drive the boat to our fishing spot as we discuss how to drive a boat :) story short... crap fishing. A few trees and roots caught by Terry, the missus and me had us only fish for maybe an hour before it was lessons on the boat again :)

short lesson on the sounder, whats under the hatches, how to work the livewells etc we were all done. I got to drive the boat up to the pontoon (first time i've ever done a boat park) and it was perfect if I may say so myself :)

Get the boat onto the trailer and a medium drive back to my place and BigTez is greeted by half of my zoo at home :D Some awesome maneuvering by Tez and the boat is reversed up the driveway for a quick wash and then put into the garage. Dollars, paperwork and a handshake exchanged, Terry is now boatless and I'm on a boat muthaf***r :)

Weekend over :D

sorry if there's engrish in the above... too lazy to re-read and fix up.

hahaha.. yep Angus... that was pretty much 2minutes after I spoke to you... yeah Billi loved it. She was a bit grumpy on the boat coz she was tired and sleepy, but she did enjoy being on the water.

Tez - haha.. man was considering it... but pretty much sat in the boat in the garage for maybe 40min after you left.

henry - thanks for letting me lose in the black beast. loved it. 9000rpm is addictive that's for sure.

thanks for the day out and for letting me be the only person on board who DIDN'T break a rod. good to have you on board - even though you DO snore. happy to help you with all boating stuff when you get yours up and running. I have a towbar, licence (which means you can drive all day no dramas as long as i am "skipper" - no "L" plates required) and all those essential bits.

and TB - kreel doesn't just break them, he throws them overboard too!!!!
