    hello, not bragging or anything:D but i live in fishing paradise.
    galiwinku - Google Maps

    i love fishing and i like my sierras so it is just as well that there is no traffic on the island.
    i will try not to annoy to many people with my questions but there are going
    to be a few as i am having some dramas with my boat.

    Welcome to the site mate, as a general rule of thumb we're pretty good blokes and don't get annoyed too easily :p
    Nice boat, hope some of us can help you out!
    And yes, looks like there might be some good water round your way!

    Cheers,

    Sam

    we haven't had any rain for about 3 weeks but the forecast is for a month of
    rain starting tomorrow. apparently the fellas that fish the daily are doing it a
    bit tough at the moment but the barra are still in the salt water making babies.
    i have been trying to catch at least 1 of every pelagic that is in the area.:D
    i landed a nice 110cm cobia last weekend. i want to try for a sail next.
