We checked out all the free campsites, the beach and facilities in the Seaspray to Paradise beach locations, today. This area is a great place to catch sand crabs for dinner.
Don't Mess With My Man :-)
Grimly determined to catch that fish.
Today is the first day here that he has not been returning the fish as 'too small.'
Talk about a determined effort. He has been fishing for days, he sure deserved his rewards today.

1 Hammer Head Shark - This is a great eating flake.
All caught on shore fishing at Seaspray Victoria on a beautiful slightly overcast day with very few people around. A mixture of sunshine and rain and a very light surf. The best bait was prawns.
Good to see Reg happy and enjoying the trying to catch something.
Reg had been fishing at Seaspray, Gippsland, Victoria for four days, and has caught and returned, several mud crabs and a 15cm yellowtail scad from the shore.
The yellow tail scad (Trachurus novaezelandiae) was legal size but there wasn't much of a feed on it so Reg put it back.
Reg has packed his largest fishing rod away. two reasons, he is only getting crabs on it and the weight and effort have been hard on his arthritis, he has changed over to a smaller and lighter rod. The large rod is there for when the results are worth the effort.
We have seen a few fish caught from the fishing platform in the creek, most undersized. One fisherman last night filled his bucket with tiny sand crabs. I wonder what these are like to eat. Have you tried them?
A trawler went though these waters not long before we arrived and it hauled in a huge catch and scared the fish away, they are slow in returning.
Tonight Reg went fishing and caught 2 undersized brim he returned and.... a deckchair. My 'difficult chapter, took off, I got verbal diarrhea and it wrote itself :-) while he was having fun fishing.
I call that a successful fishing trip.
Now if he was catching rabbits we would be having rabbit stew.
