Walpole: Jetski Fishing Report.

 Back from a few days down at Walpole. Always great heading down there,love the place-so many fishing options. From the River Inlets then out thru the rivermouth to the ocean.

Not a lot of water around the "famous" Skippy Rock in this pic:

 

 

Didn't catch anything around the Rock-headed over to the Flats and caught some nice fat sand whiting.

You can forget about the crabs down there- tried a couple of days,even the locals reckon they are extinct.

Headed out to Saddle Island-conditions weren't the best with a strong South Easterly blowing. Trolled around the Island. Managed some nice skippy around the reefs off the Island.

Had a hot drive back- 40 degree's when we stopped at Donnybrook for the tradional fruit stop.

Just as well we stopped. Noticed one tyre going flat- great just what I needed. Found some shade and changed the wheel over. Couldn't find anything in the tyre,but what I did find was that the tyre valve stem had perished,splits all around the base of the valve. These have been on the trailer for several years,and I suppose in and out of the salt water and sun. So I have replaced both valve stems. Just a heads up, if you are towing on a long trip,with hot road conditions,maybe have a look at your valve stems.

 Moking. No boat no dive gear no rod. Can't wait to get home. Hook up boat and go for dive. You should have gone for big gropper . Get a free tow.
