Tale of Woe (ie why didn't you get anything!)
At the start of last week my dad came up to try and get a fish before the mackerel season was over. He came up on mon and wasn't looking good. tuesday=470mm of rain in 12 hours, my house flooded while i was stuck at work and couldn't even get back home, even on my kayak. so my folks and my wife and her mum got as much as possible up stairs then had to bail. The next few days my parents helped clean up but we managed to force a fishing trip to the harbour on fri afternoon. wind was 15-20kts, swell about 6ft plus, it was raining, we had to go after dark once i finished work, there was so much fresh water i'm sure i could have fished for bass in the marina. We fished around until we were too wet, cold and tired and so went home. All up my dad was up for 7 days, he had one terrible fishing trip, 30 mins of sun, about 700+mm of rain, a few days of cleaning up = not the best holiday ever!
So the weekend and last week were not on as it's still fresh and i went to vic for easter and it looked as though it was perfect weather. oh well i'll get my 10 points and hope for a better one next month.
