HAHA Sel, you wouldn't believe it, in the last week I've put a few bucks into 2 raffles and won 3 prizes out of a possible 10! I like those odds.
Cheers, Ben, I'll be having fun even if I don't catch anything, but I'm bloody excited about this trip, especially taking the kayak, it's gonna be a hoot. the last time I fished the area we're going to I was 15 and my crappy cheap thread line reel packed it in the first day I got there and I was stuck fishing with a hand line for the rest of the weekend, still outfished a lot of other people there.
The slugs are for the mac tuna that constantly rip up and down the straights and hopefully a few long tails and spotted macs too, the little pak rats might stay at home, but the skitter pop and the larger pak rat are gonna be thrown at snags up the creek for jacks, and if I'm REALLY lucky a Jungle Perch or 2.
Species I expect to have a chance of landing -
Flathead (too easy)
Bream (see above)
Whiting (maybe a chance on SPs)
Mangrove Jack (I lie awake at night...)
Jungle Perch (think I need to change my pants... again)
Golden Trevally (quite common over there and heaps of fun)
Snub nosed dart (awesome fighting fish and not bad eating)
Macs (only if the weather permits)
Tunas (I'd love to get one of these babies from the yak)
We may also do some reef fishing so bring on the coral trout etc etc. I hope this hasn't upset anyone, I wish you could all come too! bwaahahahaahahah. :twisted:
