FISHING means different things to different people, but to my mind nothing beats quality time on the water with the grandchildren.
I spent a few days on Broughton Island last week as did Mallabula kids Jake and Milli Lubbock accompanied by proud Nan and Pop, John and Lynne.
It was great to see the small family group having a ball, enjoying each other’s company and catching a few fish to add to the occasion.
PROUD: Mallabula kids Milli and Jake Lubbock with an Esmerelda Bay bream.
The kids caught a couple of cracker bream, a few monster mullet and a shark that broke their four-foot rod.
My grandkids have already organised my next holiday – Broughton Island here we come.
Broughton can generally be relied upon to deliver a good bag of snapper, particularly in a north wind which greeted my crew on arrival.
For two nights we caught a handful of small squire and the future looked bleak until, on the third evening, the wind swung around to the south forcing us to float our prawns and squid down a berley trail close to North Island.
Things were quiet until half an hour before sundown then Whacko!
Our reels screamed into action under the weight of thumping great snapper.
The first fish to come to the surface was a 5.5kg reddie followed by half a dozen other crackers in quick succession.
Looking back over the time on the island we caught flathead, bream, luderick, mullet, squid and groper.
The island really is a fishing wonderland – best shared with the grandkids.
