Milikapiti # 11

Its that time of the week again, boating & fishing time, we saw some live bait around the launching area so Peter thought he would try & get some mullet. He did manage to get a couple of small mullet but ‘old mate’ was hanging around so we didn’t stay there too long. We went upstream this time as there was high winds predicted which makes it not so nice in the bay, the creek is like a maze, so many little creeks running off in all directions. We had a great day, caught & released several mangrove jacks as well as some cod although we did keep 2 cod and Peter caught a bara on one of his live baits.

The 2nd day we went out early & got to view the beautiful sunrise. Went up creek again, caught & released quite a few jacks, we didn’t stay out too long as we had enough fish from yesterday, we collected the crab pots with good results but unfortunately we lost one pot, ??? maybe a croc or a local…..

While out walking found a pretty flowering parasite growing on a grevillea, this is the first one I have seen with an orange flower. Also came across a few of the locals, one poor old girl definitely has some posture issues.

After work the other night I managed to get a few pics of the sky (7.50pm) – quite spectacular.

Trying for some live bait.

Bara – 60cm

Early morning fishing trip -quite spectacular.

Looking like a good ‘jack’ spot.

Not pretty but they were quite yummy.

Her posture doesn’t seem to worry her too much.

A pretty girl.
