Welcome back to our Moreton Island fishing classic adventure. The tournament started at midnight last night after a big welcome to Bulwer to all the competitors from the ARB and the MIA Castaways team. This morning we have rolled out of town along the track that heads east towards Cape Moreton and the famous lighthouse. A few of the ARB team has tagged along in some very well decked out vehicles.
We take a left turn just shy of North Point down onto the beach on a spectacular Moreton Island day!! The plan is to fish for Whiting and Bream in the hope we can land something worth weighing in later today. However, not all of us are here for the fishing, Garry Woodhead is a man who loves his toys and also loves to go fast. He has brought something along that ticks all the boxes.
This Sea-Doo goes from 0 to 100 clicks in less than 4 secs and conditions for that sort of speed today are perfect. I must admit the fishing is going much slower than the Sea-Doo. Really slow in fact, but with weather like this no one is complaining. It’s becoming a very social day and it’s easy to see why the ARB team love being involved in this amazing tournament. Scott Jennings loves his fishing and will cast all day regardless of the result you may remember Scott in a recent episode of Campr hooking into large mouth nannies off Cairns. Today’s action is a fair way from that but regardless Scott is definitely enjoying himself.
As the day rolls on and the tide ebbs and flows we use our vehicles for the purposes in which they were intended awnings fridges camp chairs and tables make for a day at the beach that will be hard to forget. Fact is when you are fully self-sufficient you can stay out on the beach from sunrise till sunset and as family and friends gather around for sunsetters as it’s known on Moreton. Outcomes the cheese, bickies a beer, a glass of wine and finally a fire on the beach. It doesn’t get any better!
