Well, been here a few days now and what a way to settle in! Went out in Tyke's little tub today - man what a boat and a great skipper too :Randy-git: Oops, wrong smilie, try this one (the first smilie is for Jean Genie!)
Anyway, we caught a few leatherjackets, KGW and baby snapper at the first mark, then I broke Tyke's 18 month virginity with the 1st flathead on his boat - no spiking me this time! Next stop at Stanvac Barges Tyke enjoyed catching a double header of baby snapper while I filled his freezer with slimies, I discovered a great new bait for these fish but you have to have a heavy cold ;) - they loved it!
Last mark inshore before coming in we started hammering the KGW, I managed a double header which just shows how bloody jammy I am.
Final tally of fish taken was 8 KGW, 2 leatherjacket and one good flathead. Bloody good feed! Also a load of slimies for bait and loads of released baby snapper - good sign for the future. Tyke seems to be an expert at catching these
A really good day out in great company - Tyke you are a star! Your boat is just beautiful and a sign of what we can all aspire to Down Under if you work hard. I know you appreciated the gesture of contributing to the cost of the day but believe me, I was more than willing to cover all of your costs for such a great day out - thanks mate!
After 2 fishing sessions and three flatheads Tykes reckons I need a name change on this forum to Flathead - what do you think?
