Quiet at Cungulla

With many family commitments the last few weeks I have struggled to get a decent session on the water. So yesterday morning I was sitting around the house thinking 'where can I go for a quick fish after lunch' when Cungulla Beach came to mind. Its been years since I fished Cungulla, and I though it might be worth a look see. Its only about a 30min drive from home, and a possibility as a good spot to put the Kayaks in. High tide was set for about 3pm, so I headed of with the family (dogs included) with the idea of fishing the first couple of hours of the outgoing tide.

All I took was a rod each and handful of plastics. The kids were more interested in collecting shells, and Tania was looking after the dogs. So it was just me flicking lures around. But after an hour and half of not even a bump on the end of the line we gave up! I wasn't expecting a fantastic haul of fish, just a flathead or two would have kept me happy. But not my day! So the only photos I took were a couple of nice cloud formations over the back of the Beach.

We headed off for a drive down the AIMS road for bit a wildlife hunt. A few 4wd tracks later and we hand managed to spot several Wallabies, a Goana, a Frill-necked lizard and an assortment of different Birds. Tania and boys love spotting animals, and it made the drive down worth it. KFC for dinner on the way home and was a good family outing.

Holidays coming up soon, so hopefully I will be able to get some real fishing in!
