Had a ball today.
As usual Heaps Good was great company - what's not to like about such a positive bloke!
Not a big catch day.
We went up from O'Sullivan's Beach to a little spot I have at Brighton.
Martin had the helm at 45 k's most of the way.
Only two King George Whiting and a couple of Squid taken there,both by Martin..
It's normally a better spot but today was not the day.
We came back onto another spot a few K's out from Hallett Cove that can produce small Snapper.
Bang! A nice 48 -50cm one hooked up (perhaps 4 - 5lbs)
Great fun pulling him up as he was on my lighter Whiting gear.
He got his own back and spiked me in the knee when I had him in the boat.
One of my better local Snapper - woohoo!
Martin bagged a wrasse thingie nicknamed Smokehouse Cod - teeth worse than Dracula!
It was getting a bit bouncy by this time and we both said if anyone who was prone to seasickness was out they would have heaved by then.
I hooked on some thing huge,he ran and bent the rod in two,unfortunately he bust off with an almighty twang! Could have been a shark but not sure,Shame I'd have liked to have seen him - but cut him off if too big.
Tried a bit of trolling on the way back but no takers - I was dying to see a Snook take the lure.
So home and tired but a fun day.
If I get a week day slot free again I'll shout it here.
Normally only a day's notice so I really know the weather will be good.
Thanks for being crew Martin

The fishing sounds great! I know its a bit early to ask, but we have booked another holiday to see sister in Adelaide, Dec 09- Jan My brother is a very keen fisherman and would love to take a fishing trip if possible. He is brooding at the minute as this time last year, he was on a fishing trip to Canada!!!! He was also hoping to get to Tasmania for some fishing.It may be too costly for this visit.....although I can see him taking himself off to Tassie if the pull is too strong!! Have you ever fished in Tas?
He would return the favour if anyone fancied some fishing in Ireland where he is a gillie and has a boat and a cottage in Co Donegal.......
