Hi All,
Not a lot to say really. Took my Single Swing out for the second time and paddled out in what started off as smooth conditions, as predicted on Sea breeze. :shock: :shock:

But not 500 metres and a swell quickly built up (around 2-3ft) and the breeze rose to around 12-15 knots. At the fishing spot X the swell was closer to 4ft at times and I was being well and truely knocked about. :cry:

So much so that parts of the reef were clearly visible :shock: - despite my best hopes, no fish were landed. I fish a deep gutter for Snapper that has a shallow ledge over it.

My wife who shot over to Spot Y in her SOT Acadia 370 - faired a little better, but nothing landed.

The conditions were simply too rough and dangerous to continue I though, so we returned. :evil:

Still 2 paddles this week and it's only Thursday - wife is extremely encouraging about paddling - will be out somewhere on Saturday. 8) 8)

Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish.
