Thanks to Darryl for showing us around his backyard. Spent time to find us a crocodile, in 5 hours fished many spots for a variety of species, showed us the mangroves and we took a drive around the island. Thanks for the high effort Darryl!

Darryl tried so hard to help us catch fish on the day we went out! If a spot was not working we would move on (just like we do at home!). Thoroughly enjoyed watching him throw the cast net; I wish I could do that! Thanks for the effort Darryl.
