This week on the water
We had a good week even though a late winter storm brought plenty of wind and rain. Prawning is at a season high production wise and should continue to improve until early May. The local islands provide great protection so even on stormy days it is often nice and calm in the Sound. We hit a weather window on Thursday and flew into the river in the Beaver float plane. Despite slow fishing we enjoyed a magical day drifting through pristine untouched rain forest finally ending up in the Sea. Its an amazing trip if you get a chance.
