Within 20 minutes I was at the jetty with all the gear and meeting my guests,
Denis and Christina Kay
Theo and Youlla Eriunidis.
As we pull away from the jetty, Capt. Charles is at the wheel and I have taken over as deckhand/host. Rosie, who usually does this job had to stay and watch the store.
It is about a 25-30 minute ride out the the reefs we are going to fish, so I sit down with my new angling friends and go over a few things about safety and not hooking me in the back or head with a lure.
We arrive at the reef and I give a few casting lessons and put Denis up at the bow and Theo at the stern. Lucky for me these two fellows are quick studies and are casting like pros in no time.
Unfortunately the fish gods were not shining their grace on us. Between a full moon and 25 knot winds we did not see a lot of action.
Denis landed a nice Bluefin Trevally on 30 lb.
In the end we had a good time despite a lack of fish as told by Theo's smile.
I hope to see this group again as it was quite enjoyable.
