New guests onboard Kanimbla, Frank’s Friends from Northern NSW meet with some cool temperatures, in fact Boyne Island, a coastal villiage (where this writer lives) experinced a morning frost!- unheard of in this area. So the bottom fish were a little shy, but the group managed to take home some quality pelagic fish.
