Over 5 days last week I have been launching a cool boat with twin 115hp outboards down at Port MacDonnell for an op. Every time we started the engines a dolphin has literally tried to eat the props. He ignored every other boat. We even started to gain a crowd of dolphin watchers as he was so consistent. Not good when you are trying not to be noticed ;) We put it down to the twin engines.
Anyway, I took my tub out today, only 70hp. Only motored about 100m before Dolf found me! He followed me out which was cool.........but...........I was only fishing in 2-3m of water and EVERY bloody time I dropped anchor he went head down, arse in the air and lifted my anchor with his mouth. It got so bad I gave up coz he either stopped me anchoring or scared all the fish away!
No fish for tea tonight I've got some pics on my mobile, will try to get them on when I get a mo
