Waking up to a magnificent offshore wind blowing uncharacteristically brisk for summer…something weather-wise was surely up (pity the waves weren’t!). Our 9am launch put us into the teeth of the day’s heat…cruising to Linga Linga to snorkel for sea horses and panzy shells – and hopefully look out for them elusive Queen Mackeral (Natal Snoek) – that were running this time last year. By mid day the sun was so hot, we had to take shelter. Linga Linga to the rescue again!
After delicious lunch with refreshments…Henry, Jean, Ronald, Graeme and Allison and us headed back to Barra into the strongest Southerly we have had to endure for a while. 35knots plus! Our 25ft Cat was just enough…anything smaller would have had us wet and uncomfortable.
We dragged a few lures on the way home, but the Snoek stayed hidden…the only way to know – is to go! The weather looks great for this next week…stay posted!
