Not fishing, but for anyone interested, the Big Rock blue marlin tournament is going on this week out of Morehead City, NC. They broadcast the radio traffic. It's really fun to listen in.

I have been fishing since Saturday.

Just terrible, worst in years and my uncle might be last trip. He is 91.

We are trying a new lake Friday and Saturday.
My boat build is here -------->

Here's another video from our recent trip to the McArthur River in the NT. Its the biggest fish boated on the trip and gave my mate Listy a new 95 cm PB barra.

Yes Jeff, there’s no doubt about it - I’m good! :D

I only have to tow the boat 1200 miles to look that good! :lol:

Just don’t talk to my physiotherapist. I took him barra fishing in the beautiful Hinchinbrook Channel north of Townsville a couple of weeks ago, and ...................... DID NOT SEE A FISH !!!!!

I thought some here might like to see where I have been fishing lately. So here's a quick run down the McArthur River from the boat ramp near Boroloola in the Northern Territory to the mouth.

The river is shallow but generally navigable in most tides. In the video we were mostly running in little more than a meter of water and often less. There is a very nasty rock bar on the left about 2 minutes into the video, but the way past is well marked with buoys, and once you have that sorted the only real danger is getting stuck on a mud or sand bank. If you follow the rule of sticking to the middle of the river in the straight bits and taking a line closer to the outside of the turn on the bends it is OK.

It does take a bit to get used to running along at 25 - 30 kts in a 22 ft boat - in 3 ft of water.

The first time, we just sat in the wake of someone who looked like they knew what they were doing!

At 25 - 30 kts the depth finder will only confirm that yes, we are aground. 8)
