After an evening walk around the headland I decided that conditions in the bay were conducive to a session in the morning as long as I stayed in close.

After a dead easy launch I rigged up a HLP on one side and a pillie on a safa rig on the other. I thought that a troll past the river mouth might be in order before I headed for the calmer waters in the lee of the headland. The mouth produced nothing, but the wind did push me out quite quickly. I turned around and headed for the shark nets near little Little Cove and then NE along the headland. Being quite late in the day there was a lot of activity around, walkers, fishermen, kayakers, divers and crazy Tree Tree to Main Beach swimmers. I'd never kayaked so close to the headland before so it was great to explore everything and get a fee for it from the water side.

After a while I packed it in and headed for home trolling a small medium diving HB I'd not used in a while. When I got back to MG and reeled the line in I found I had Grinner #2 attached. This one was released (the other one drowned).
The beach landing was again a breeze, but I did pull up right behind a bridal photo shoot. Bugger! no fish for the ultimate fish holder to hold. Instead I thought I'd take a few pics myself. The bride and her bridesmaid were game and turned for a smile. Thanks ladies, come back again for your next wedding and hopefully I'l have a fish.
