Stonefish Schooling Dirk Hartog

Old photo from back in October 2012, all caught straight in front of the site where 'The Shack' on Dirk Hartog island was before demolition.

I think the final count was 12 all collected at low tide with gaffs buried in the sand, all released a safe distance from camp.

The previous day we rolled in with a boats full of camping gear and a few beers under the belt and set about unloading the boats in fading light unaware of the potential peril underfoot.

Pretty sure they commute between the rocky shallows and sand as the tide changes, otherwise there were 8 very lucky fishermen as they were everywhere when we attempted to board the boats early the next morning crossing the same grounds as the day before.
