I've just made it back to Melbourne after spending four days fishing with Mark Privett from Gone Fishing Cooktown during 1-4 October. This was my third yearly visit and this time I had five mates with me.
Six into one boat doesn't go, but Mark kindly made arrangements so that we could get out in two boats and we swapped around a bit. Unfortunately the weather wasn't kind and we could not go outside (this week has been perfect!)
Our skill sets varied quite a bit and Mark worked patiently to get everybody a fish and provided some excellent advice that the guys really appreciated. On the plane home today, Glenn told me that he had learnt a hell of a lot.
We caught heaps of fish. Barra, Jacks, trevally and even a few sooties on a side trip. Every day we had more than enough fish to feed six hungry blokes. Already, the boys are debating who can go next year and I still have a few on the waiting list as well!
Glenn, Rick, Geoff, Rathy, Banjo and myself all rate a day out with Mark and Gone Fishing a 'must do' in Cooktown. Don't plan on going for the first week in october 2013, because we will be there!
