Tony

Nice to read a report at one of my old stamping grounds, and to see Horseshoe so empty shows the benefit of midweek.

I think the western side of Bird and Goat Islands [SE of Peel] would be great on a yak with the reef bottom, some good fish there at night.

How long to paddle across the bay from launching?

That was quite a trip, Tony! But hey, didn't I tell you you only have to paddle about a k to get a decent squire off Scarborough?? Only joking of course....well done, good effort, good fish. I wish I could have been there - it must have been a great day. How were the muscles feeling this morning?

Hi Tony my local tackleshop guy was telling me this morning about "some guy" on a kayak at Peel yesterday that must have been you. He said there were a lot of mackerel around unfortunately all about 40cm shame you didnt get on to any. It sounds like it was great time, I havent been sure about paddling that far although I have paddled for well over five hours, you have given me the confidence to give the bay islands a go on a good day.

That was quite a paddle, I'd say around 18 kilometres all in (according to google earth). Well done for that alone.

There is a good spot at Peel that consisentally produces good quantities of snapper - maybe next time I'll share that with you.

Great report Tony! Sounds like a great trip. Ive paddled from Straddie to Peel, about an hour each way but its certainly closer than your trip.

Do you have a shark shield?

Cheers,
Jake
