Happy B'day Johno

Some good friend of ours came to visit on their way to Christmas Island, John and Karen. Now these two are probably more mad about fishing than Rosie and I. And that says alot. 
While they were staying with us it was John's birthday, so we had to go fishing on that day come hell or high water. 
Now being mad fishers, these two don't really need any lessons. Except the proper technique for casting a heavy popping outfit, which took all of about 1 minute.
Now if only the fish would cooperate. 
The weather was strange, no wind and very muggy. 
Hat off to these two, they put in some serious casting time and for John it finally paid off.

Heading out in the morning.

Karen, ready for action.

John showing us how it is done.

Calm and muggy.

Finally a GT, small but feisty.

The release.

Rosie had to get in on the action with a little bluefin trevally.

And the birthday boy lands a second one.

The fishing was less than stellar and a lot of hard work for these two, but we had a good time and with them. Lots of catching up and fish tails.

Until we meet again

It's fun being with good friends whether or not you catch fish.

Hi there,

Sometimes the company on a fishing trip is even better than the fishing.
And giving some Trevally to your friend on his birthday, is a top thing to do.

Have a good day.
