What a weekend!
Saturday started off with a 7 hour SUNRISE fishing trip. These winter morning sunrises are just spectacular to see, worth getting up for.
We then turned around and did a 5 hour SUNSET charter. The sunset trips do quite well over winter, especially the smaller trips. We tend to see quite a bit more action in the evenings.
On Sunday, we had the pleasure of having the Warner Recreational Fishing Club out on a full day fishing charter. The conditions were glorious so there was no reason not to head out to The Barwon Banks. The decision was made not to do Spanner Crabbing as they were keen to get out fishing, their trip had already been cancelled once due to bad weather. In fact, they were that keen, we left an hour earlier than we usually do but it seemed to have paid off.
There were a lot of good fish on board – some good Travelly, Snapper, Tusk fish, Moses Perch, Spangled Emperor, Red Throat Emperor, Gold Spot Wrasse and Maori Cod.
We even hooked onto a good size Gummy Shark – obviously she went back safely into the water – which always provides the lucky person with some great action.
The day was full on, what you hope every day could be like. Dolphins played on the bow wave of Crusader for quite some time as we headed out to our location. Turtles were sighted, fishing was great and everyone had a good BBQ lunch and nibbles to fill up on. John was given a Rod & Reel as a gift from us for booking a group.
One of the testimonials from the weekend. We are always grateful to receive such wonderful feedback from our guests. It makes all the efforts of our team worth it.
The next few months we will be seeing the whales as well so it’s always a great time of the year to bring the family out, head out on a smaller trip – do some fishing, and see the wonderful humpback whale migration, and the other marine life.
