Kids love Cocoa!

PhotobucketWell its Easter time and the kids are into Chocolate, so it only seems fair to take them for a fish in Cocoa Creek! So we left home about 5am this morning and made a quick stop at the servo for the compulsory mozzie spray. A bumpy ride along the creek road that is now a little washed out and we were the first boat in at about 6am. We headed straight to the mouth and quickly set the pots. We then anchored up current of a likely looking snag and sent our half pillies back to the waiting fish.

The kids had a ball of a time catching Bream one after the other. Unfortunately the big ones were few and far between. But between the kids and mum we did end up with a nice bag of fish in the low 30cm range. Tania also caught a nice Flathead and 40cm Mangrove Jack. I suspect Lachlan got done a couple of times by Jacks, but he just wasn't quick enough to put the breaks on them.

Lachlan also managed a monster Muddie on rod and reel, and then we managed 2 more from the pots on the way home. We went through a block of pillies and bag of prawns in about 2 hours. Lachlan says "next time bring two blocks Dad". I think I will have to get them live baiting for Barra next!
