Not another Jewicide!

We had a great weekend at the block, we never stopped the whole time but
it was really relaxing.

John got his new door welded up and I painted it, we just have to put the
iron on the front of it next trip and then we'll be able to leave the boat
on our block.

We spent all day Saturday doing this as looked like it might have been
a bit windy on the water.  We were supposed to have a day off
on Friday and head up to the Perrons and overnight on the boat
but due to a fire here John ended up backburning most of
Thursday night and needed to keep an eye on it on Friday so
we gave it a miss, will be better fishing in September anyway.

We got out fishing on Sunday morning.
Got the boat in the water by 8am (John slept in :-)

Had both of these in the boat by 9am!  Time to go home.....

A Beautiful Jew Fish

Then about 15 mins later.........

You got him..............................

Yeah Baby!!!!!!!

Thanks to the great and skilled person on the net, we landed
this beauty!

LOL none of me.  I was so pleased for John, but jealous into
the bargain I so wanted a big fish! We caught a lot more but after
those two we just threw them back, a few fingermark, grunter
of course Rock Cod and lots of stripies.  We were home by 2pm.

Talking about throwing them back.......

We had this dolphin come up beside the boat and stuck with us most of the day, we think that is why a lot
of the bigger fish stopped bighting, I think he spooked them.  He had the top of his fin missing and a bit
out of his lower back and tail poor thing.  They were healed so it looks like it had it for some time.
Didn't seem to worry it, but it was alone, which is strange and seemed to have to come up for air
quite a bit.  We were throwing our smaller fish to it, which it would just race up and grab.

So anyway their is a bit of eye candy for all the fishos out there, and it is so nice to have
the freezer full of fish.  (Even if we have given a lot away already).

Can't wait for the next trip.
