Waz-in-Oz Posted June 2, 2010 Report Share Posted June 2, 2010 Some of the staff at my work decided that we should all go on a fishing trip after me sending out emails showing some nice fish in photos which they are getting tired off of me having a too good a time onm weekends. We booked a reef trip which was a 24 hour trip leaving on Friday afternoon at 4 and returning Saturday at 4.30 pm. The boat was through Conquest Charters and was a 68 footer and travelled at about 12 knots so there was heaps of time for laying a bit of trash talk on the way out with some cold refreshments to boot. All meals were supplied like a roast dinner on Friday night and a cooked breakfast the next morning. Two deckies and a hostess were on board to look after 19 of us and we had the boat to ourselves. Rods and reels were supplied but you could take your own and seen they supply Tld 20s with mono I elected to fish braid on my own outfit. Squid, pilchards and some tuna were baitsa and we had a great time all bonding with some great fish caught. Some big sharks gave us some grief at the boat taking hooked fish but it was worth it to see some staff hooked up and have it taken and a 200 lb whaler engulf there fish and smoking there drags. Only two managed to stay up all night with most grabbing a few hours sleep - me after landing a few fish at our third spot for the night and then being smoked three times in a row on 80 lb braid and being wiped out by large sharks was enough for me at 1.00 am in the morning so I snuck off into the aircon for a kip for a few hours and returned at 4.00 am. Here are some of the photos I took of us catching a few and having a good time. Waz. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
