I am sorry you had that happen. Having had 5 kids I can relate to what happened. Glad he is all ok and that is the main thing. There is always another Fishraider get together.

No worries sasha! It was great to meet you and your son Anthony too! What a trooper he his. Mate we went to bed earlier than the old people lol but I got up about 1130 and changed baits 30secs later bang! Nic one on 4lb gear. I woke the boys up and landed. Back to bed got up just now and dropped another after changing baits! Hmmm might be something in that.

Anyway, you have my number and feel free to ring when your heading my way and need a 4mydecky!

Cheers scratchie!!!

Sorry to hear mate, hope the little one is alright.

Had a fantastic night even though I didn't get a touch.

Might have woken up feeling a little dusty this morning though!

What a great weekend with great people. My son said "Dad we caught nothing" I replied "we may have caught nothing but we left with plenty". See you all at the next fabulous social and a giant thanks to Donna, Stewie, the mods and every one who turned up on a cold and windy weekend dead smack in the middle of a freezing winter in Sydney.

Well done Yarraone, on all levels. Ed, you must have been close. Well done to you, too. Congratulations to Little Scratchie. Dad's got some real competition now. A great comp from here everyone. Gutted I couldn't make it at the last, but had a ton of fun on the follow. Between the cricket and the fishing, one helluva good weekend.

Bloody awesome event.

Fantastic company, great laughs and good fun.

Thanks to everyone to who made it possible, the swordies for organising it and the people who made it so memorable.

I didn't manage to boat a hairtail this year, but that didn't stop me having a great weekend.

Thanks to Teflon especially for the taxi service, the company and putting up with the two of us not knowing what we were doing.

Sorry I didn't make it to the mothership for the weigh-ins - ed and I enjoyed a few drinks the night before and in the morning, I was a bit rough!

I'll post a full report later, but I'll say this now. I'll be back next year with a vengeance to get my first hairtail!

Great social again this year! I loved it

Lots of laughs and luckily for me and seamus, some good fish

We dropped heaps but still managed to boat 4

Unfortunately Seamus could have caught (approx.) the 2nd place hairtail but it had at least 20cm of its tail bitten off, if not more! Compared to others caught it would have been the biggest for us but anyway big thanks to Stewy, Donna, and the mods

We'll be back next year for some more action and laughs!

Cheers Gianni
