    Default Bit of recent fishing,and a big thanks to Dids

    So i have been trying for a couple of days to post a report, with the wind up etc, however have been having some technical computer issues. Thanks to Dids these have been resolved and i can now post.

    So have been poking around the estuary, and did i recon a couple weeks ago and found a few fish, salmon and the like, and a few small grunter so with a light southerly forecast and lots of aeroguard on board we set off before dawn. The run down was good, first bit of bank a bit quiet then i got a couple of grunter on the grubz. Pete got a nice one, then i jumped off a nice little giant herring close to the boat. I have a pretty strong stomach but i have to say that i hooked a grunter in the nostril and it was one of the worst things i have seen on a boat. Blood pouring out its nose in big red streams nearly did me in.

    Pete then proceeded a red hot run, punching plenty into the esky and was releasing 55 plus grunter one after the other. I did a swell job of driving the electric for a while. We nabbed another couple, saw a nice shark doodling up the creek, and got a couple of good tarpon as bycatch.
    We were back at home by 9;30 with a feed of fish to clean. Plenty of jet skis out and about and lots of trailers at the ramp. Good to see a few fish getting about, but prawn season is looking dire up here...Again.

    Morning well spent.
    Now, I'm not saying we should invoke capital punishment for Stupidity, but how about we just take all the warning labels off everything and let nature sort itself out?
