Post Posted: Wed Nov 03, 2010 3:22 pm    Post subject: up awesome creek with a minn kota

i had the day off work yesterday so i decided to go for a fish, (which is pretty much what i do when i am not working) i wasn't
really all that motivated so i didn't get my boat in the water until 8am. for a change i didn't get my tow car bogged so the day was looking good.

Image

it is a 20km ocean run to get to the little creek that i wanted to fish, thankfully it was flat enough to cruse at a decent speed.
Image

i arrived at awesome creek around 2 hours before low tide and the first cast i nailed a nice chrome speedster
Image

the next 3 hours was one of the best barra sessions i have had with over 60 fish
boated and probably that many again lost.
Image
Image
i also picked up a few little goldies and a little threadfin
Image
Image
Image
my next day of is Friday so i think i might have to head back and see if they are still
hanging around, Elcho is a great place for a fisho to live :D

thanks fellas. sy, i reckon that a bow mount lecky is as important as a good rod
when it comes to lure fishing. i have just put a i-pilot in mine and it i dunno how i fished without it.

Mate you have the spots most of us dream of on your doorstep. Lucky bugger. Well done you nailed it big time.
Never fished with an electric yet but the things Im hearing make me think they must be worth their weight in gold. Cant wait to see what all the fuss is about.
:cheers:
