Bigtime Weekend with mates on squid

  It doesn't get any better than this, over the weekend I was fortunate enough to spend a bit of time with a few mates on the waters of Western Port, fishing regardless is a blast but when you get to do it with ya mates its all the more enjoyable, there is something about a fishing brotherhood where its not about who has the biggest or best rod, or who has the flashest egi, its about getting out and having a laugh and enjoying the basics, casting and retrieving without a worry in the world and spreading the ink and by spread the ink we mean spread the ink. After a cool slow start to the morning where I arrived almost an hour later than I was meant to with nothing but a bit of ribbing from the boys I hung my head with guilt as they laughed at my messy state. As the sun came up a bit so did the squid I had an absolute ball with no pressure. The water was a mix of clean and dirty depending on where we were, there was hardly a breath of wind and the current was so slow that at one stage we had to turn on the motors a bit to help the drift, if any one is interested in getting a few mates together on a squid charter most of Melbournes normal snapper charter folks will be running squid charters, on this occasion I was fortunate enough to be in the company of Gawaine Blake from BigTime Fishing Charters. That said we have 3 Squid charters/tuition trips coming this weekend 30th and 31st July for those interested please contact Gawaine at BigTime Fishing Charters on 0411 103 367 to book your spot to avoid confusion with bookings.

Here are a few photo's from the magnificent day on the water
