The fish John West Didn’t Reject – Or – (Sorry John -I know the Joke’s Been Done to Death)
An Unseasonal wind shift from the West (no pun intended) meant the crew from Brisbane lead by none other than (no relation to the fish manufacturer) John West had an oportunity to visit some of the outer reefs on the far edge of our Great Barrier Reef.
Because our prevailing wind usually come s from the south east – it isn’t very often that we can visit the reefs on the edge of the shelf; when a westerly blows our anchorages tend to sit on the drop offs rarely frequented and as a result the catches are impressive!
