Tingalpa Creek on Sun 24th June

I went out for my first salt water outting since March and met with some interesting events. Tried my new Crackajack lure and think I had a strike but not sure as just after it became snagged on baby mangrove sprouts. I paddled in to get it back and discovered that owner hooks are VERY sharp. One of the trebles became imbedded in my favourite 1 finger salute digits. After trying to gently remove I bit the bullet and grabbed my hook removing pliers and gave it a quick pull and it came out, with just a tiny amount of skin attached to the barb. It didn't hurt as much as pinching my hand on my seat back earlier.
I had a fair bit of fun and did manage to catch 2 whiting which were probably undersized. Took photos and when my daughter has time to teach me how to size them right I'll put them on. Les :?:
It's okay not to be okay...

Another example of reason for barb crushing Les. Hope you had a medicinal beer later for stress mate

I've gone nowhere just staying warm waiting for wind to abate.
