Following Eyetag's success on the river early Sunday morning I decided to head out on a similar route. I arrived in the car park at 3.15 am and was on the water by 3.30 am, trolling a Gold Bomber past the Sheraton and across the Woods Bays to Ricky's. I then turned to follow the current line towards the river mouth. I repeated the route from Ricky's to the mouth for over an hour without any success, probably because Eyetag had caught all the fish the day before. So I returned to Woods Bays and trolled the line where I had recently had success with Mangrove Jacks.

By now the boats were arriving so I did one last trip following the back route to the car park and on the way picked up a Big-eye Trevally around 30 cm long.
