hi all as a few of us have time on our hands now, here is a question. Does going fishing in a 1 man kayak count as isolation?
As for Burril lake, I got quite a few Tailor up to about 34 cm, plus two small snapper, Dropped a flattie at the yak, and lost a double Crank to something that chewed through the leader about 6 inches up the leader.
Saturday was eventful. lost steering on the yak just when the big southerly hit, of course, I was at the furthest point from the van park, up at the drop off in the main channel. So using my paddle to steer with I made my way over to Kevin who was having his own troubles, with his electric motor experiment, A flat battery and about 100 metres of line around the prop.
so we teamed up he could steer while I was the main power plant, took us about 50 minutes to get back. but we did it under our own steam.
steering was the centre bolt had come loose and dropped the up-down control loop off the pulley, so the big sailing rudder kept lifting to the top of the water.
wouldn't mind hearing from Bill, and Conan to see how they ventured, have you heard from them?

Had a response but changed my mind and deleted it. None of us are experts at interpreting the rules. If there are good guidelines available, I haven't seen them. I would not want to say something that makes you decide one way or another.
