    Default My Xmas break in review.

    Hi guys, thought i would post a few photos of what i have been up to over the break. Some nice fish, plenty of crabs and tales of woe as well.

    Been some good grunter about. Most of the grunter i caught over the break was on one 2.5" Grubz. Still on the rod, 23 so far.

    Also found this shoe not far from the tracksuit pants... I then left the scene,

    I have some footage that i will put together in the next little while abiout chasing sharks and grunter, and also i would love to show you the threadys i hooked, however they got the better of me. I need a new plan for chasing them, with a half out tide, so they cannot burst through the mangroves and bust me off. It doesnt matter what size line you hook them with they are unstoppable,particularly fishing solo. I will formulate a new plan, maybe bit fishing for them. On the upside the bugs in the straights havent been too bad. Hope everyone has had a good break.

    Did the crabs have an odd flavour about them by any chance, happens when they feast on certain flesh.

    The thought did cross my mind. No good asking Jode. She doesn’t eat them.

    I think they are just left overs from one of Dids' camping trips with his mate Carta Feugo. As for the rest of it, good going captain.

    I still need to cross one of those good size, big one grunters off the bucket list.

    Yes could be mine Chewy, I am missing the memory of a couple of nights up there. Can you give them a wash, and I'll check if they fit in a couple of weeks. You didn't find a second Dunlop volley did you, I am pretty sure that is mine?
