Had a fantastic trip out to bare sandy island with the family. What a spectacular place. We got very lucky with the weather, with only one brief storm after we were all packed up. A lovely breezy night with lightning off in the distance. We didn’t spend a great deal of time fishing, but I did manage to get a rippa 70 cm goldy.
By far the best thing was the turtles. Whilst we didn’t see any nesting (still too early for that). On the low tide right next to the island we literally seen hundreds of turtles. 10 seconds wouldn’t go by with out seeing another one. We were drifting along in 1m of water and at times there were 10 swimming under the boat. Also seen two pods of dolphin gust cruising past, it was a pretty special weekend. Will definitely be heading back there.

Some queenies off there back in the day can top 1.2m LANDBASED. Hectic spot. 8)

But as usual camp well back off the water and you'll be fine. Have even barricaded the mozzie dome or used (multipule rum can and a handfull of gravel inside each of them mounted on sticks with multiple laps of braid creating a wall ) extended perimiter alarm trip wire. In particularly croc infested spots well off the grid ... Oolloo area. In the Daly for instance when camping on the sandbars in my younger, fitter and way keener days.

Cheers for the pics glad u included the signage too. Nice goldie BTW too :cheers:

top report mate. :mrgreen:

We camp just back from the top of the first dune. I thought that would be enough, didn’t bother with any other croc preventions. Thought that would be enough. Planning of heading back there a bit, maybe I should do a bit more. There is that many turtles in the area I don’t think a croc would go hungry there.
