    Swains Reef - October 2018 on the Eastern Voyager.

    I took Max out to the Swains in October on the Eastern Voyager. It is an excellent boat and a fantastic crew that maximised the time spent fishing and the diversity of fishing opportunities. At nine years of age I knew he was ready for the challenge.

    We got the chance to fish from the Mothership in about 100 metres of water for Goldband snapper, rosy jobfish, bar cod, and monster pearl perch. Max's best pearl perch was a beast of 67cm.

    We fished the shallows for the usual collection of coral trout, red throat emperor and tuskfish.

    Fishing was from dories as well as the mothership.

    Weather was pretty good for the duration and the sharks weren't too bad.

    Thanks mate. It was a fantastic trip. The video I don't think does it justice.

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark
