,What report? :-). It is a little slow. All the more joy when the results of patience arrive. I guess. Pleased I have a novel to write, a freezer stocked with food, and am not fishing.
Good to see Reg happy and enjoying the trying to catch something.
Reg had been fishing at Seaspray, Gippsland, Victoria for four days, and has caught and returned, several mud crabs and a 15cm yellow tail scad from the shore.
The yellow tail scad (Trachurus novaezelandiae) was legal size but there wasn't much of a feed on it so Reg put it back.
Reg has packed his largest fishing rod away. two reasons, he is only getting crabs on it and the weight and effort has been hard on his arthritis, he has changed over to a smaller and lighter rod. The large rod is there for when the results are worth the effort.
We have seen a few fish caught from the fishing platform in the creek, most undersized. One fisherman last night filled his bucket with tiny sand crabs. I wonder what these are like to eat. Have you tried them?
A trawler went though these waters not long before we arrived and it hauled in a huge catch and scared the fish away, they are slow in returning.
Tonight Reg went fishing and caught 2 undersized brim he returned and.... a deckchair. My 'difficult chapter, took off, got verbal diarrhea and wrote itself :-) while he was having fun fishing. lol, I call that a successful fishing trip.lol.
Now if he was catching rabbits we would be having rabbit stew.
