A big paddle for those (all but two) who went to Little Halls Reef and Halls Reef. My trip was 19km for zilch but lots of great scenery and some exciting close encounters (see vid below). Longtails and other pelagics busting out. Several fish hooked at Halls Reef but nothing of consequence brought home, although we haven't yet heard from pedro (last seen heading for Sunshine Reef). ScottyD bagged a Spaniard and a big spotty mac.

Two minute vid (a big screen will let you see the jumping fish better):
