Mrs Scaley must enjoy lots of fish dinners. You have been prolific lately. Well done. 

She is always happy when I come home for a feed. Luckily for me @tugger has a freezer full of quality reef fish from recent trips so left me with the catch of tasty bread and butters yesterday. Weather looks good tomorrow. Might have to have another go somewhere.

I need a mate with a freezer full of fish so I can take something home to the missus occasionally too.

Mrs ellicat doesn't even ask if I've caught fish anymore. She just asks if I had a nice day. lol Even when I do catch fish I usually let my companion take them home as I'm usually too lazy to fillet and cook them. Some days I do though.

Nice one. Shame they were a bit of hard work. I went out today with a fella and struggled to get about the same bag. We also put in a fair bit of time trolling for flathead with only 2 unders to show for it.

Certainly beats 4 walls though.

It’s good that they let you out occasionally

One thing I’ve always wondered though. How do they wash the straight jacket without endangering themselves? Very big washing machines and just throw you in too? 
 

Do they give you a snorkel?

Four walls

wash basin

prison bed

Oh sorry! I apologise. I had the wrong facility. When you said four walls I immediately remembered my stays in another type of facility. You get out even less often there. But the padded walls are quite nice to bang your head against I must admit.

Nah. Only kidding. They haven’t managed to catch me yet.

I appreciate the effort you have gone to to create this art piece Steve - it must have taken quite an effort to get the macabre lighting just right and I really like the random pattern of fish with some upright and others upside down. You are really honing your craft well .........

Nice work on the fish - always good to get to know a different location. Didn't drop any pots?

The fish didn’t have a chance. They didn't even know which way was up.

No pots this time Kelvin, but we did take note of where the pro pots were for next time.

Mind you, I just realised I made 90% of the comments so please disregard the above post.

Did you get out mate?

I had to go to the lease to pick up some oysters. 

I towed lures for about 4 hours for 1 bonny...

But I did catch an octopus at the lease so eating well tomorrow night.

Put a few lazy hours in at the port for a couple of small bites and no fish. I saw your message about the lease when I got home, which was too late. Sure was a busy day at the ramp for a Thursday.  Octopus hey? Yum!

Yep it was living in one of the pipes. I knew it was there because there was a midden of shells and dead crabs out the front
