23rd – 30th July 2005

John Milne’s Crew from Balina/Lismore had better luck with the weather than the previous group, in fact it was better than the original forcast by far! An average breeze of 13knots and sunshine made for ideal fishing conditions.

Bruiser’s crew from Noosa win the prize for the best effort in Gale (literally) conditions. With the winds topping 30knots +, seas around 3 metres and the occasional rain squalls conditions could not have been harder to fish in. Yet some good quality fish found their way onboard the Kanimbla.

The big winds didn’t put off the mackeral’s appetite for hooking up.

Snapper’s Crew from Glen Innes and rural NSW are one of our original group of charterers who have been joining us since we purchased the Kanimbla in 1997. They have repeatedly shown that they are one of the best fishing groups to charter with us.

Steve Voss’s Gang from the QLD Sunshine Coast paid us their yearly visit with mischief in their eyes! Sometimes the weather, tides and fishing gods are working against you and some charters don’t produce the plethora of fish expected. Steve’s gang have chartered with us for many years now and in the past have had great catches but also know that when perfect conditions don’t arise they take it in their stride and make their own fun…Knowing next year will be better.

They battled the elements:
They Drank beer for Breakfast!
