Getting my backside in the yak for the first time in over 6 months, hopefully back into it properly again... :clap: :clap: :clap: Spent today shaking spiders and mouse shit out of the gear, checking systems etc.... Damn it feels good!
Best off all, my reels still go round :lol:
Won't be roaring off to the outer waters at this stage, but as I've been a wee bit out of the loop, I was wondering if anyone knows what the fish are doing at the moment (answers of "Swimming" will be ignored).

Ambo? PJay?

Cheers!

Great news! I haven't been targeting the snaps lately but I'm sure that you'll find them, when you get your paddle fitness back there's plenty of tuna out in the blue water oh and a few bigger things...

:beer: Cheers HLA for the invite and the use of the boat. :beer:

What a mint morning it was to have my bum in a yak for my first ever fishing trip. :)

And how lucky am I to have HLD help me out !! :clap: . My only problem was that he makes it look so easy! :|

Can't wait to start exploring and catching some more. :y:
