Sunday, July 15 did not provide ideal conditions for Dr Adam Hatherly and his mates to venture out on Action Charter’s 25ft Contender “Lone Wolf II”.
Being just after the new moon, the very large tidal range did not help and when combined with a southerly breeze, the conditions were far from ideal.
Before the current reached its peak, the shipping channel yielded a nice feed on Grassy Sweetlip and average size Nannygai before the sea state had us seeking more protected waters around the outer islands.
This provided a much more comfortable environment for the remainder of the day and while the fishing was not red-hot, the boys ended up with a nice feed to take home and had their arms stretched by schools of Trevally.
If the fishing was slow by normal Action Charters standards, this was more than compensated by the number of whales witnessed throughout the day and on the run home.
We look forward to hosting Adam and crew again in the near future.
