    Whale hunt

    Ok, so the kids want to see a whale or two this weekend, can't believe my fishing passion has been elevated t(not) to whale watching but whale watching it is for me this weekend. Murphy's law will dictate there is not one to be seen at the one single moment in my boating lifetime I am actually trying to find one so really keen to hear some positive news please on confirmed sightings in the last few days of the Goldy?? Hopefully there are some numbers coming through to improve my chances.

    Report of whales right in close to the seaway a couple days ago.

    See them almost every time I go fishing off the Gold Coast.

    They seem very inquisitive and approach the boat most times.

    Had a close call with one last year where it launched itself totally out of the water.
    Spectacular thing to see, except we were about 30 meters away, and the tidal wave produced was massive.
    It absolutely scared our living daylights and we got the feeling, it was telling us to bugger off from the area.

    So now, every time they come close to us, we start the boat and move to a safe distance away from them.
