    Stanage bay

    Had to work up in Moranbah for about 8 days so we decided to drop the boat at Stanage on our way up. Unluckily for us we finished our work on Sat smack bang in the middle of the School Hols. But we managed to get a house from th Wed. What to do, load up a tonne of gear and ice and head out to the Percys which we did for 3 days. We managed Tuskys to 8kg, jacks to 5kg, a couple of reds, 8 big crays one between 3 and 4 kilos, nice trout to 8 kgs and the usual parrot fishes and bommie cods. In between the diving we passed the time drinking, getting naked and all the other stuff that goes along with a boys trip. We came back and replenished our supplies and Dad,Dan and myself(Skinman had to go back to work) scooted back out on the Wed afternoon and camped on Hexham for the night. We scored a swag of ripper trout averaging 5kgs, some nice redthroats more crays and I stoned a 22kg spanish with my 1.1 reef gun. Lots of filleting and packing in the freezer. Packed up fri and headed back at 3am getting home at 2pm. Had just picked up an isuzu 200 tradepack truck so it was a good run in for it and its nice to not notice towing a boat. Will get some pics later, don't have many as camera was left in truck > , and brett has video camera in NZ diving with makos and blues.
    Cheers all fellas Doug
