All Aboard!

6am at the ramp and it was the busiest I've ever seen Narrow Neck; boats and kayaks everywhere.

Mitch and I launched and headed straight out in perfect conditions - light winds and overcast.

The next 2 hours proved very frustrating as boat after boat roared by at full pace, I couldn't get a bite at all.

So I headed over to the red buoys on the other side of the channel.

A few minutes later I hear a big diesel engine, and look behind to see a large charter launch headed straight for me.

This clown came within spitting distance, washing big wake across the yak and shouting "That's what you get for fishing in the channel!"

He literally swerved right over to the red buoys to have a go at me, then turned back into the middle of the channel to continue on.


Anyway, I landed on a good spot just after that and got my 7 - nothing flash.

Nice job as usual!

Bloody poor form from that skipper. Lets hope he returned with empty fish bins.
Glad your ok and we'll all need to keep an eye out in future.
On a more positive note, I'm pleased to see another trophy adorn The Mayors already bulging prize cabinet. Yes that's right I took out first place in this weeks Labour Weekend's John Dory Classic with the fine specimen pictured. The winning catch was witnessed by your team mate who managed 4 nice snapper. It really is quite a feat to target JDs with a softbait, a lesson I may share with you in the future.
Back to winning ways for The Mayor and team Ocean Angler.
Stay safe out there.

You might need to fit a 50cal to your yak, a few rounds across his bow may help.
I wondered where you buggered off to, a great catch and day out Doc.
