Milikapiti #21

Sunday 19th/Monday 20th June- time to go fishing. The weather is looking much better than last weekend when our friends the Brincau’s were visiting. We went out into the bay, it was a little bumpy but still very fishable. The breath taking colours make me wish I could draw or paint but I will settle for the real thing & photos.

WOW! We didn’t fish for long, no need, 2 big beautiful Golden Snappers (fingermark), the we put the crab pots in & went home.

Up early next morning & back out into the bay again, caught a variety of smallish fish – no keepers except for one ‘goldie’ who swallowed the hook & wouldn’t of survived (pan size). Then it happened – Peter’s line went off, took him a while but he eventually landed a 130cm jew fish – WOW! A beautiful creature, we released him & went & collected the crab pots, 1 keeper, the crocs had some fun with 2 pots.

A great way to end our fishing days here on Melville Island, as we have sold the boat & the new owners wanted to collect the boat the same afternoon.

While out walking next morning I discovered quite a few of the Blackwood (acacia family) still flowering – so beautiful.

The start to another beautiful day in paradise.
