A bit of a lazy start didn't get going till 7am on the water by 8am, There was a little more wind than expected but didnt look to bad.Out the corner of my eye I saw Nakiman, wonderboy cruising into the distance..I went to the left of the reserve to around the 15meter mark the fish finder show fish but the next hour was very slow the only a ky and 1 small snaopper accounted for. Was thinking it was going to be one of these days, I was getting alot of little bites but no big hits. Then the FF started to show more fish and bigger fish. It became all hand on deck one stray line screamed off, once had brought that fish in the other stray line was off this went on for the next 40 mins great fun. Ended up with 7 snapper biggest 62cm and one ky.

Great report and well done :y:

How did the conditions hold up for you? I ended up just fishing the port as had to can my plans for a road trip. The wind picked up about 10am at the port and the conditions got a bit sloppy so called it quits about 1130 with 6 Gurnard and 1 Blue Mac in the bin. ( Blue Macs turned up in force for about 15mins and wreaked havoc :rock: )

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to Yak fish and you won't hear from him most weekends :-P
