Ahead of the storm

Headed out for a quick session before the big storm hits. Wind was already SE 15 knots when we left, which soon picked up when we reached Montague at 10.30am. The wind made the drift extremely fast and hard to fish, yet there were plenty of small fry on the bite. Snapper of 20-25cm, flathead of 10-15cm and small wrasse were plentiful!!!!!!.....gees give me a port Jackson!!!!!... Moved around a bit and even anchored to set up a cube trail in search of one of those Nelson Bay sized reds but no luck. 

Wth the weather turning SW 20kts we headed out towards the shelf to at last try and find a whale. Just as we located some my son started feeling sick, so we headed back to the island. By now the rain, thunder, lightning and waterspouts were dampening our enthusiasm so home we ran. Fun day none the less.

The storm is now on its way up the coast, enjoy.

Great photos Jon, although the first one made me feel sick just looking. Do you do any post-processing or is that straight out of the camera?

actually, I haven’t kept up. What camera is it?

I used to use photoshop until you had to pay a monthly subscription to the cloud!!!  Now I just use the free basic edit software you get with the camera. Those weather condititions with sunlight and very dark clouds in the background were truly amazing to see even without whales, just a pity I couldn't stay there longer. When the sunlight became covered in cloud the look was just dull and flat.

Camera is a Sony compact RX 10 IV. Unlike my days of high end slr gear, this one camera does it all without needing to mess about changing lenses and carrying a heap of gear.
