Having trolled Xmas tree lures down to Ben Buckler without any strikes, Tony decided to give the deep diver a run out to sea.
Heading out towards the eastern horizon with a 5 to 10 knot Sou-wester filling our sails.
The sea temperature off Sydney remains cool - 16 to 17 degrees. This is our excuse for not having caught any Kingies today.
Farewell to Spring.
Let's hope that Summer brings the East Australian Current closer to our coastline and with it the pelagic fish.
Well done, King Tony!
After weaving between the congested moorings in search of the elusive Kingfish, the view opened up towards Broken Bay. Lion Island and the heads are in the middle distance. A slight head wind boding well for the opposite side of Barrenjoey and the passage down the coast.
