One of those magical days! Ulladulla 21 January 2019

Recommended Posts

Seabreeze forecast was perfect so headed off outside Ulladulla at the gentlemen’s hour of 7am... high tide was about 9:30am.

For some reason the sounder wasn’t working so used ‘old school’ marks using local landmarks and dropped some salted pilchards down in about 70m of water.

I think we hit them on the head! First drop a 64cm snapper and new record for the boat!

The next half hour was incredible with my best mate and my godson landing five nice snapper- highlight was my godson landing a 60cm beast on his Shimano estuary combo.

Landed a few other species and kept a nice pigfish and plate sized morwong.

Took my 7 year old out a bit later and he nailed a nice 40cm flathead.

Just finished a fresh fish feast - highlighted by the whole snapper Thai style on the BBQ!

I am one proud and happy father, godfather, mate and skipper tonight....

Tight lines!

Mutt

Nice. A few good reds, nice flattie for the young fella, and a good looking feast on the table.
