22 May – Kimberley

22 May 2017

If you are not generally into fishing then going on a fishing adventure may not seem to be your thing but it can be quite surprising. We have known Paul for a number of years and he is one of the keenest and maddest Barra fishermen we know. He has done a number of trips with us before and this time asked some friends and family to come along. Needless to say Ed & Susan and Stephen & Melissa were a little nervous about the whole thing however Noel’s & Luka (Paul’s wife and son) knew exactly what to expect.

The Kimberley is an incredible place, the scenery alone will take your breath away. Then after that you will be at awe with the wildlife, the movement of tides, the power of water and all the special little moments experienced when out on the ocean. The fishing is just a bonus on these sorts of trips.

Talking about the fishing, the group who had mostly never fished did extremely well catching a good variety of fish including Barramundi, Fingermark, Mangrove Jack, Queenies and Salmon. We enjoyed a number of fish dishes as well as some Mud Crab and on the last day a great feed of Kimberley Black Lipped Oysters went down well with a bottle of champagne.

I am pleased to say that they are already talking about coming back again. The crew have only one request, that next time Squealy stays home!!!
