I arrived at the MG car park at 5h35 to find Pedro's car and a kayak track down to the launch area. It was an outgoing tide but the launch was easy. I radioed Pedro to find he was at Little Halls and decided to head in that direction trolling a Halco 120 lure. There were no signs of birds or fish breaking the surface.

By now there was some patchy bird activity with occasional small bust ups of what appeared to be Mac Tuna. I chased the bird action but this was always beyond casting distance. I then trolled along the coast line between Little Halls and the river mouth a few times with no success.
Pedro continued fishing at Little Halls and caught another three sharks. By 9 am I decided I had had enough, and headed back to MG. The beach landing at MG was easy and on arrival I met Mick Binney (call sign Hobie-wan) who did not fish today as his Hobie Revo is in for repairs. But the kayak should be ready for action soon and he is hoping to get out later this week. Sunshiner also came down to the beach to see what he had missed and let me know he is planning to get out possibly Friday and Sunday.
I am not sure if I will get out again this week, but the weather looks likely to improve so good luck to those who manage a fishing trip.
