    It was Near enough to full moon, and not too windy last night. A great opportunity for a bit of night prawning, and my effort never went to waste. I got half a bucket of quality prawns in the river. The largest was 22cm. The most difficult bit was finding them. That took an hour and a half. Best cast was half a dozen, and there was plenty of bait fish. Having forgotten to recharge my battery from a previous trip it left me blind casting. But, Still did well. As usual I got most of my catch in 2-4 metres depth. I arrived home and had a big cookup, before finally going to bed.

     need some help guys... situation is like this....

     My sister in law has just married, and is visiting us on her honeymoon. All the way from broken hill, she is fillipino and loves her prawns. Last time she visited i didnt even own a cast net so a feed of crabs and squid and she was happy. Im sure i can deliver the crabs and squid again but i DEARLY would love to catch her a few prawns as my wife tells her that i am a prawn catching machine.

    Greasies or bananas dont care just want about 20 prawns that i caught for her.  Can do from redcliffe to southern bay, any ideas on how i can get a couple... I know i can get some from woollies but i would like to catch them for her.

     cheers leso

    After recovering from my surgery I decided to go down to a location where I thought prawns might be lingering around so I can get a feed.

    What an evening to remember. Went to the spot, tide was low and current barely moving, it was about 4.00pm. little wind with some showers, had the location to myself, bonus.

    First cast had 3 prawns, second cast 5 prawns, few casts later zero prawns, had a rest, then made another cast for 20 prawns, had my adrenalin going, managed to catch a damn fortisque, one ugly mother it was, stick job to flick that one back in the brine.

    Had couple of casts and *bad word*, some idiot fisher had dumped a chemically sharpen hook which I had unwittingly got stuck in my left thump, I gave a high explicative word at the top of my voice, even the predator would have been proud of.

    As the rope was diving into the water so was that bloody hood digging deeper in my thumb, with great effort I managed to retrieve my net and made my way gingerly to my car and off to see a medic to get that blastered hook removed, Xray showed hook just short of penetrating the bone. 7 shots of local anaesthetic and bit of a cut with the scalpel, hook was freed.

    Always another day tomorrow.

    Here's the pics of this evening.

    Happy prawning.
    Bondy

    Ouch! I feel your pain Peter. Been there - done that. Resulted in a trip to the emergency dep't at Redcliffe Hospital at about 2.00 a.m. Sat in the waiting room for about an hour and a half before finally getting to see some young interns, still wet behind the ears. Got a shot of local anaesthetic and once that had taken effect a whole lot of poking around with much discussion and little progress. Finally I took the forceps off them and pulled the hook out myself in one quick motion, so fast that they were still discussing what was the best way to get it out and I had to tell them not to bother. A quick tetanus shot and I made it home by dawn. Not my best night ever!
    Cheers Freeeedom
