Peter Goode and Mark Kita went off Port Fairy again yesterday and bagged out on tuna by 9:30am, then went to the shelf to test his new ELECTRA Electric Reel (available at Richardson Marine), and got 2 nice gem fish.  On Saturday Mark also ended up getting a 10kg gummy.

Yesterday saw the Warrnambool Offshore & Light Game Fishing Club hold a surf fishing outing at East Beach, Port Fairy, and those who resisted the temptation of the favourable offshore conditions had a great family day, with a few salmon being caught by the more accomplished anglers (i.e. not yours truly!)

Salty Dog Charters at Port Fairy also showed yesterday that there are still plenty of tuna around, bagging out by 9:30am.10565076_916738265019089_6427502662379501111_n 10569026_916738318352417_3258259709908156059_n 10561743_916738295019086_8559498404578835499_n 10414841_916738341685748_8823027848413341395_n

Andrew Westlake thoughtfully retrieved this gas cylinder which was floating about in the ocean on Saturday.  Scary to think of the effect hitting this at 20 knots would be, and a reminder to always be on the lookout ahead when travelling on the water.
