Second Fishing Expo
Hiya again! Today is Anzac day and the family woke up at 0530hrs as there is no work so we decided to go fishing again. Maybe we would have better success at catching Fish. All fishing rods were prepared and in Heather casts her Rod, immediately there was a bite and the youngest of the family pulled her first fish in a herring, squeals of delight and in all our excitement we forgot to take a photie of the fish on the hook.
A kind fisherman showed us how to kill the fish and into the bucket the fish went. Lots of fish out there and were eating the bate (some squid), lots of tugging on the line, but no bite in sight. Until that was another fisherman showed us how to fish off the rocks and within no time the eldest child had a bite, a common blowfish, this time we had the camera and photies galore.
I was busy casting out my rod and reeling it in again, but nothing was biting majorly, lots of big nibbles but no fish. So Andy decided to give me the rod that Vivian got her fish on and just dangled it off the rocks waiting for about 10 mins and then bingo a bite, I had caught my first fish and yes there are some photies of me bringing the fish in. Do not know what type of fish this was and have failed to identify it, but it was a fish. Gave it to another fisherman and he was well chuffed with it.
Off home then it was to begin the day, the girls had a bread roll for brekkies whilst fishing. Might add to this entry a little later.
Our little blue baby is finally here (Peugeot), we got notified yesterday and could have collected her then, but need to get a Temporary Movement permit then take her to get inspected and licenced and the first available slot is for next Thursday 3 May, so I guess we will have to wait until then, I wonder how she has fared on the high seas and "was she scared during the crossing", now I am getting too sentimental. Some more good news is finally our furniture etc is being processed by customs, hopefully by next weekend we will have our things, can only wait and see.
Take it easy everyone. Have a great ANZAC Day.
