When leaving a hot fishing session, cries of “one more cast” abound.
This time we had one more cast too many and got smashed by a storm. Heading back to Mood Swings in the blue boat was not fun!
Especially when we discovered yet another issue.
Although anchored in the sand, the squall swung her around and caught her anchor chain on a bommie.
Not pleasant to deal with a storm bearing down.
The culprit. One more cast near Martin Reef.
With bad weather looming and no internet reception for days holed up at Lizard island, we decided to make a run to Martin Reef.
Calls and orders sorted, we had a lovely swim near Martin Cay.
Having been holed up in Watson’s Bay, we were running low on fish, so we headed off to stock up.
Turns out it was a pretty hot session but with the clouds getting darker, one more cast became the catch cry.
Knowing we were soon going to be stuck at Watson’s Bay for a week, we were super keen on some tasty red fish.
Find out what happens when we have one more cast too many in the latest episode.
