We left home about 3pm Saturday afternoon, and it was still pretty windy. So I wasn't too sure we would be going far! But by the time we got bait, ice, fuel etc it was 4pm by the time we got to the ramp, and it was backing off by that stage. We first ran to the North Cardinal to try and collect some live bait, and even though there was a moderate NE chop on the water, we got there in quick time averaging about 22/23knots.
Next morning we rose about 5am. The boat had swung overnight with the change in tide, so I had to re-position. But first drop of the anchor had us right back where the fish had been. Baits went down and fish were on the chew. As first light appeared we landed several fish including a couple of undersize Cobia (another first for dad) and some Nannygai. I landed the biggest Nannygai of the night, 4.5kg cleaned. But as the sun came up all we could manage was every assortment of Trevalley!
Looks like it was a busy morning too, boats parked all the way to the aquarium!
