no rules...no politics...just ridin'

Fishing...I know...it's not bike related...but...

I was lucky enough to get a call from Snappa - a mate of mine who rides a VTX - on Saturday afternoon asking if I wanted to go out on the boat with him on Saturday night - of course I jumped at the chance. I had only ever been out on a boat fishing once before and you never knock an opportunity like this back when offered. Anyway, I rode up to his place arriving about 1:00am - another mate of his was also coming and he was already there so not long after I arrived we headed off in the car with boat in tow.

The plan was to head out off Mooloolaba and we did just that - took about an hour to get to our destination and then the fishing began. Were kept busy reeling em in - I had never fished in water that deep (about 80 mts) and man when you've got a snapper fighting against you on the end of your line and you have to reel him in all that way - well lets just say I got my monthly dose of exercise. We stayed out on the water till about 11:30am - witnessed a spectacular sunrise and caught a few fish.

I'm not going to go on anymore about it but it was a great experience - the guys taught me a few things which I really appreciated, I managed to hook a couple of good feeds and the weather was great. Doesn't get much better than this!! Check out more of Snappa's fishing tales here.

Mate, I had a great time. Still trying to work out how to cook em though - might try baking them in the Weber.

Will definitely contact you when I next do a run.
