Recommended Posts

davo's MBC report

well i was sick so didn't do things as planned ,still had a good weekend .

so Saturday we left home around 10:30 after just throwing stuff in the tinny and car .

a stop to get fuel ,oil and maccers breakfast .

which was over :(

so on the way down one of the home made skids broke and fell off somewhere .

i pulled over as i thought dam the light board looks like its sitting funny ,well that's when i found out we lost a skid . :ohmy:

oh well strap it down tighter and keep going .

it was about 1 pm when we got down to manly ,no 1 was about as we where 2 late .

stuffed about till around 2pm ish mixing fuel and sorting gear out ,etc.

so me and rhys went out for a spin and a quick fish anyways .

out to D'arcy light ,soaked some pillies .

nothing happening bar pickers .

so back to the ramp and home before the dark and cold kicked in.

had some fun at the ramp too ,as we had a bigger motor on and as i put the tinny on it popped the hitch . :blink: always a adventure :)

so went to bed early and set the alarm for 4 am ,fingers crossed .

managed to wake up at 4 am ,didn't feel to bad so off we go at 5 am.

ran out of fuel ,just beside the servo .

so put some fuel in and pit stop at maccers ,breakfast yum ,coffee yuck yuck yuck.

got down there around 7 am ish .

had a chat with gus ,john ,henry .

so about 8 am ish we head off to the ramp .

had one of the girls with me today ,she was the only 1 willing or stupid enough to get up at 4 am .

a bit more wind and chop around today .

we headed out to green for a look about,then around the back of green and down to huybers beacon.

looking to drop some pots in ,gave up as we where cold and wet .

zipped across to the front of fishers island ,soaked some pillies for a bit .

drifted along the boat passage side and anchored around the front .

just end up losing bait to pickers .

so it was about 10:30 ish and we where cold and wet ,so we headed back to the ramp.

no problems today as i was prepared ,had a chat to a bloke at the cleaning tables .

he had a heap of whiting and parrot ,some nice big ones too .

so then cruised back to HQ for the presentation and a chat etc .

end up being a top afternoon .

so in total no fish .

spent about 2 hrs fishing and 3 or so hrs hooning around over the 2 days .

we did do some sounding around and checking spots out for future reference .

between that and chatting to peeps ,reckon we mite have some ok spots to try .

so i did win a door prize :)

got the john deere pack ,suffer kreel :P

maybe next year u will get it :)

pretty kewl i reckon ,i was rapped .


this being my third afo comp ,fifth afo event.

first was the shark social ,kooka park .back in jan 09.

just went for a meet and greet ,end putting a line in ,the boy got a nice flathead ,dinner yum.

second state of origin ,comp .aug 09 .

had plans to fish,got wasted the first night.had alcohol poisoning for the 3 days.:ohmy:

me and a cpl of the kids did sort of fish,got some bream and flathead nothing big.

kids had a ball getting little fish off the bank and playing .

third was the kayak social/comp.aug 09.

me and rhys entered this 1 ,in the canoe .

we got up early and forgot the bait ,so fish plastics all day.

caught a small sole ,had a good day .

poor rhys was crook all day ,chucked a few times.

forth was the flathead social .sept 09.

took the whole family and friends to this 1 .

had a lazy fish on the beach ,kids played etc .

no real fish caught but had a top family day out .

the afo xmass party .09.

had a good time ,chat and meet new people .

behaved myself .

then this 1 the Morton bay classic .

so third time lucky .

third comp .

go me a lucky door prize :)

so the wrap up is

no fish ,had a top time as always with afo events .

caught up and had a chat etc .

didn't really meet any new people at this 1 ,as i was still ill ,tired and not over chatty or mingling .

strange thing i didn't take any pics or video .

i usually take some pics of the scenery or video of the boat/canoe going or something ,even if there no fish caught .

what ya reckon .the next model for john deere.


so the stuff has been stashed .

as i have had some of my kids and other kids that have been over eying it off .
