Bicheno Report 11/06/2012
With the promise of very little wind and swell, Mike Stevens, Bailey & Phil Zanetto, along with myself, headed out to Bicheno early this morning (6am) with the aim of targeting a few striped trumpeter.
A consistent 1.5 metre swell along with steady winds of between 10 to 15 knots made life a little uncomfortable, especially on the trip back in, but we still managed to catch a few stripey’s, jackass morwong, flathead, leatherjacket, giant cod, blue morwong and infinite gurnards.
I have been named the “gurnard king” by today’s crew due to my knack of being able to bring them up three at a time on such a consistent basis....how lucky! (Sarcasm).
This was the first trip in our boat to fish Bicheno, but it won’t be the last.
Thanks fellas for a great day out.
