Nathan is left to his own devices as Milan is busy babysitting and all vessels are being serviced or spruced up. What to do when you wanna fish? Off he goes in the small inflatable with a slim selection of fishing gear. That’s all you need for a fun day in the harbour!
Well, it turns out that a bit of berley and some calmer weather wouldn’t hurt…
A new day, a couple of whole pilchards later and the snapper start falling victim. Due to all the weed in the harbour, lure fishing doesn’t seem as efficient as bait casting but once the Sluggo gets onto the Stella/Full Throttle combo, the kingfish succumb too, weed or not.
