After reaching the harbour we let the boat in to the water and got everything ready to leave. Left the harbour on calm waters with a load of other hobby fishermen already out. We went about 15 kilometres away from Portland and started to drift towards the harbour town. Roods where out and a few fish where caught strait away. I got some venomous type of stinger fish, a few small “snapers” and a squid (which got away). None of it was fit or legal to eat, so I would have normally gone
After some time we where joined by an Albatross, a medium sized bird when it is in the water. Once airborne the wingspan is just massive. It ate two of the fish we caught and threw back in again. The fish didn't swim down fast enough. We ended up having four around our boat and they would sometimes even go after the bait. After a relaxing day it was back to the farm and to get the pump fixed up again so we could have running water. After that some leftovers for dinner and then an early night to get ready for work the next day.
