Where I stayed
The Moorings Timeshare Resort
We set off at 9am on the high tide a few klms from shore... We spotted at least a dozen whales with one emerging briefly just metres from the boat... awesome creatures..
Thre were six passengers and the boat.
Unfortunately Gus didn't catch a thing and things were looking dismal when suddenly Pam hooked a small fish... only joking!... A whoppa shark approx 45kgs and over 1.8M in length..
It was a 7 gill shark... apparently not common and usually lives in 6000ft depth of water.
Pam's wrist and arm was sore as it was quite a fight to get it an board the boat.
The guys filleted the catch and it easily made 8 big meals...Suprisingly a lot of the shark seems to go to waste...
Easily the biggest fish Pam has ever caught... She is still getting over it!
The water was quite rough... a "short sea" which made a few people feel sick.
Not only did Gus not catch one fish but he spewed up over the boat.! Mind you Pam also felt quite ill and another guy we were with got sick as well.
Nevertheless a memorable afternoon. We didn't return to the resort until 7 hours later .. so quite an exhausting day!
