Well after lots of planning and waiting, we are off tomorrow for NT for some serious fishing. Don't expect to be back till August.

First stop King Ash Bay, up past Borroloola. Been there before and will stay for as long as we enjoy it, then move on to other spots.

A diet of fresh fish, crabs and prawns is a bit tough, but life is full of compromises. We have the 40lt Engel set on freeze to take some beef, lamb and chicken for variety every now and then. But I can normally survive on crab sandwiches for lunch for a fair while.

I suspect we will get a bit wet for a while as the wet season is still going strong up there. But while the water is warm, the fish will be a bit more active.

Hope to have broadband working over Next G, so might pop up occasionally. Otherwise, I'll tell you about it when we get back.

Norm C,
"Look out Barra - here we come!"

The fish are probably killing themselves laughing at that statement. LOL.
Have a good trip.
Work is the curse of the down and out bludger.

Let them laugh Bros. We have never failed to get a feed yet. And we only keep what we will eat and release the rest, so that should make them happier still. In fact we've released more barra than we have kept over the years. Hope we catch enough to maintain that claim on this trip.
