This was our first catch of the journey. It's a Queenfish
and it took the bait whilst we rounded Cape Don for the
first time, right in the middle of the worst of the slop!
Cape Don was calm that day luckily so I took the helm
whilst Mike landed it and chose to use his fathers tomahawk
to put it out of its misery, then unfortunately lost it
Blood the Deck
The term “blood the deck” is apparently what
you call the first catch of a fishing trip.
