|Up before sunrise|
If you want a fabulous fishing charter with a great skipper, head for Karumba and go with Paul of Kerry D fame.
The skipper took us out to the sand island where we had been the night before for our dinner cruise, but the tide was on the way in and the island was soon covered by water. We fished for bream and they came on thick and fast! In between pulling fish in and baiting up and casting, we were mesmerised by the bird life on the island. Thousands of red-necked stints about to head to Siberia, took to the air while we were watching. An awesome sight..I took dozens of photos.
|A variety of bird life|
|Red necked stints|
|Thousands of them|
|An the pelicans too|
The tide came in until there was no island the the pelicans were the last to leave
|A glorious day on the water..but the pelicans had to move when the island was covered by the incoming tide|
The pictures tell it all about the fishing....

All in all a top day out with the Kerry D... you can find them here...
Of course... a day at Karumba woiuld not be complete without a sunset...

So onward to the east... we departed the next morning unsure of our destination... we decided to drive till we wanted to stop! Would it be Croydon, Georgetown, Mt. Surprise or Undarra?.... wait for the next instalment to see where we ended up and got a huge surprise!
