G'Day all avid yakkerators.
I have recently moved to a quaint funky town in far north Queensland for work. A long time passionate/obsessive angular with a keen scene of adventure, so I definitely arrived in the right place. I recently acquired a sexy Ocean Prowler Ultra 4.7 a few days ago and yet to christen it with the tranquillity of the Coral Sea. Fingers and duodenums crossed, I'll be able to sample the fruits the tropical waters have to offer; Pelagics, Reef dwelling aquatic forna (and European backpackers). However I am aware of the giant lizards (with jaws that could crush an orbiting satellite) that inhabit the estuarine systems. This has aided in the creation of the third golden rule of kayak fishing; "Though shall not frequent a dinosaur infested river system on floating plastic thingy".
On second ponderings, everything in the water up here can kill, mane and or render you therapy bound. With the likes of crocodiles with the power to tare off your face with one sneeze, sharks so cunning they eviscerate while you shower, jellyfish (who must not be named) will cause intractable burning pain making you wish that the neurological and cardiac toxins would kill you faster than the usual minute and a half, octopi and conefish that cause suffocation through paralysis, and stingrays with a sense of irony. Also, if you are manage to avoid all Heidi's works of art and catch a fish then devour it, there is a 98.748% chance of ciguatera poisoning. With no antidote, one will firstly have a slight buzz, followed by tingling lips, a warm feeling on the inside, and then SPONTANIOUSLY COMBUST taking out dwellings within the 200m blast radius.
I can’t wait to go fishing.
If you have survived an angling outing up here, I would gladly appreciate tales from the sea (good spots to wet a line). I also look forward to provide an in detail, play by play, breath by breath account of my yakkerating fishing adventures.
Look forward to forumming with y’all now.
