With the Old Man back on
Deck I was excited to be heading to a location I hadn't fished before.
Taking just on 45min to get there in the early morn (It took nearly an
hour and a half to get home) we got lost only twice. However the Day was
stupendous, the Shire really turned it on for us. Different to other
harbors the channels are narrow & sides shallow but clearly defined by
navigation markers. At low tide sand bars are everywhere! With in
seconds of dropping the first line we had bites but alas they were
small. However eventually we got on to some keepers. As is the norm you
have to learn how to fish a new area, I heard live bait & berly works
best from the local yokels. Who knows but I'm sure we will be back &
I'll probably give it a go then. But next time we might go to Grays
point & give that ramp a go.
