Quiet in the bay

Dad and I went for a channel run today. Aim was to work metal around the last few markers for some early season Mackerel. Unfortunately the Mackerel were not there! We spent quite a while both drifting and anchored on the North Cardianl, but despite plenty of bait around we didn't turn a scale.

We brought some live bait back into one of the close marks to try our luck. But it seemed quite everywhere. Dad did eventually manage on nice Golden on a dead live bait! And I landed one 48cm doggie on a pillie. Metal only accounted for one 'bump' all morning.

The weather was ordinarly to say the least, and we were back at the ramp about 10am. At least cleaning fish wasn't a problem!
