First 2018

#1 Post by Mackayak » Sun Jan 07, 2018 6:49 am

2017 was a very full on year farm sold and moved to a rental house and after 3 weeks of unpacking and try to down size made the call going fishing. We are just under 1km from a fresh water boat ramp so yak was set up now to see how the walk to the ramp was going to be. Water not real good after the storms but on the water my fist trip in retirement :?: On the water for a short time and seen a spot that said Bass a few cast one right on the spot and on yes first bass things where looking promising. It was time to change to surface and fish back to the ramp nothing. With no sing of fish cut the trip short to make sure I did the first walk home still with some light as it was all up hill. Well made it home had a beer and yes we can just walk and go fishing so hopefully this is the start to many enjoyable short trips. :wink:

Well done Dave. Pretty good to catch a fish at all in that dirty coloured water. Enjoy your retirement. Bill

Nice little fish and close to home as well. Should be good once the water settles, enjoy!

I'm surprised you lasted 3 weeks with water so close. Congratulations on retirement, plenty don't get there! Soak it up.
