Awesome Silver! Gotta be happy with that, and I bet you and your new boat setup are enjoying every second out there on the water!

Best regards,

Well i was!! I buggered my Min Kota electric trolling motor today somehow. The gears or motor that turn it left/right have siezed or something.
Don't think it will be cheap to fix. I tried fishing for a while without it but what a pain...you forget how good they are until you can't use one.
Nothing i can do but get it fixed although the water has warmed up and i have a plan of getting to some of the sandbanks and the shallower water and anchoring or beaching the boat and walk the shallows.
It will do until i am back in action properly.

I'm planning on going to Malacoota for a few days in early December so i just hope there are no hassels with parts if i need them.
I'm going to stay at the Foreshore Caravan Park and get a jetty so i don't have to launch the boat every day.
I WILL get a 1mtr Flattie!!!!.
Last time i was there the wind was rubbish but this time i am only 135klms away so just might be able to pick the weather. I want to get down there before the xmas holidays.

Nice work on the bream! Very decent size!! I really love bream but would also love to catch some flathead, so your pictures have been making me jealous!

Nice flatty!

Got the kids on a family fishing outing to catch flattys using 'cheese Twisties' as fun hook bait.

They caught more than the adults as Twisties also make great 'hi-vis' burly, LOL!

On a sad note...a 19 year old kid drowned at the river mouth the other day. Poor bugger.
Apparently was hanging on to a log with a mate and got taken out the mouth and on to a sand bar and got hit with waves and knocked off the log.
His mate made it to the rocks and got knocked about a bit but this fellow drowned.
If he had just known the basics and used the current to take him out and then came back to the beach instead of trying to swim across the current you would tend to think he would have been ok.
Probably only about 60..80 mtrs out and under half a dozen waves, the difference between life and death.

That's so sad silver... life is precious, you have to treasure every second cos you just don't know what's around the corner. Tathra taught me a valuable life lesson - nature is constantly changing. Never swim where your feet are off the ground.

A few years back a Dad drowned off Tathra Wharf when he tried to save his two kids rolled into the ocean in a pram. Very sad time when three lives were lost.

Each time I hear of a tragedy in Tathra I feel like I've been stabbed in the heart. It is such a special place.

Best regards,

^^ & ^ What terribly sad events .

Life is precious.

And so very fragile.

The Universe has little place for those of us who make mistakes ...
Sad, but only too true.
