    I've copied and pasted this from one of the fishing forums I'm involved with.

     

    Just had a great day out yesterday,much needed R&R & fun

    Had a great day out yesterday.

    A pleasant change to have Andrew as a crewie and his Dad who is a regular fishing partner.

     

    This is for Andrew with a big kiss kiss.gif - see later........

    Went out with high expectations of depleting the local KG Whiting population.

     

    Not a chance!!

    All drops were void of KG's, just a few Red Mullet,Squid,Leatheries and still the baby Snapper in droves on some spots

     

    Decided to head to a spot which as well as giving up KG's has shown promise on the Snook front. I was especially keen as I seem to have the bug for Snook at the moment,great sport and tasty too.

     

    Bloody hell - it paid up in spades!!!

    Ended up with 51 healthy Snook in the esky !!

    The pic is messy,couldn't be arsed spreading them out for display,That family esky is choc full of Snook & the odd Tommy.

    I learned a lot yesterday,certainly whetted my appetite further.

     

    Trialled out a lure I had for ages with trebles on.I normally just stick a metal Whitebait one but Andrew encouraged me to have a go.Great and I reckon it put my catch rate up.

     

    I caught a few Snook,a Tommy, my woolly jumper (several times),nearly my "man bits" a few times and last but not least my finger (pictured above )Rather than muck around in casualty Andrew "extracted" the lure with his Squid jag line.

    Thank you for saving my life ,I knew you were going to do that!

    Next time I'll remember to take a pic !!!!

    Sounds awesome Tyke. I enjoy a bit of fishing myself, but I have no knowledge of the Adelaide scene. I saw a few blokes bass-fishing in one of the lagoons and I will defo give that a bash when I'm over there.

    Glad you explained what had happened to your finger - I thought you were just posting up rude pics! Oh, and I'm not sure if you realised but one of those things you caught is a bottle, not a fish!!

    It's a juvenile bottle-nosed dolphin, Diane.

    A photo of an esky full of fish isn't complete without a stubby in it. You can't be a proper Aussie yet Tyke :)
