Had to get out and wet my new girl a Profish 400. So Army Bay it was and today was it . Met up with Popey and headed out into the blue. Not much happening so we paddled towards a big group of birds working but no Gannets out off Wellington Reef. The bite time passed and still little to show I had a pannie and think Popey also had a similar catch . then the sea breeze fizzled out the sun came out and wow this is spring?? Nice calm but no good bites for me .We then paddled back towards the shore between Army and the Cove . Well second cast and bang fish on ,pulled in a nice 61cm snap and only 100 meters from the shore. Popey lost a feisty Rat but the day ended on a nice note for my new yak without an empty catch bag.The nice fish is seasoned ,prepared and chilling for the smoker tomorrow.
Gotta get a real new Tagit bag real soon.

Sweet ride and great fish to christen her with. Fish your feet first they say..tho fishing them last seems to work too...
The gods do not deduct from man's allotted span the hours spent in fishing.
