Ya keeping it a secret mate?, was settled back Tues nite to watch me 'ol mate Thommo in another fishin' or campin' adventure, when to my suprise he was off to visit 1770. (Briz31)

Beauty, I've been there, what's he gonna catch (and inevitably cook) I wonder. If he's smart he'll head to Agnes Bait and Tackle to get some local info.

Tony you did well with guided tours and it looked like the guys scored a good feed. How about that snapper, caught when there was no camera man eh ;) ;) good way to keep a spot x ;) ;)

Can't wait for our next trip up, a beautiful place indeed. So Tell me Tony, is Thommo's cooking good or what??

Gday Skippa
Mate that show is gunna come back and haunt me for the rest of my days! lol ;D It was quite an effort to find fish for the guys. They picked horrible weather and a bad time of the year.
We did manage to get enough to make the show but only by the skin of it! Had enough for thommo to cook up a few feeds though. I was surprised at how good a feed of such simple recipies could taste! He does have the camp cook knack thats for sure. Had a heap of laughs that weekend.

Regards, Tony ;D

Hey Tony as a matter of interest. What is Turkey Beach like?

Is there good fishing around there? Is it far to get around to Round Hill? (i think that's it)

19-03-2004, 01:01 PM
I've never fished around the turkey area, but I'm sure there is some good fishing to be had there. Every now and then I hear a report or two on the area and it seems to be quite good for barra, jacks and grunter. It is a fair hike for a smaller boat to get to Roundhill creek but quite possible in good weather. I would be more inclined to drive around and re-launch at 1770.
There is access to some good offshore fishing from turkey, and its not that far to bustard head or pancake creek. There is reportedly some good reefies to be had around the southern headland asyou leave rodds harbour (ithink they call that area "split end")

Regards, Tony

G'Day Tony,

Well, that will happen to ya, old shows never die they just come back and haunt ya. ;D

Yeah by all account Thommo's pretty good with the 'ol camp oven, and I reckon he'd be a funny bugger. We tried a few of his 'recipes' when we've been camping, and they turned out ok, suprised me really.
