Smooth waters

Its was a pretty eagerly anticipated good weather forecast for Melbourne this weekend and many hit the water with winter squid in mind.  It was awesome to be out and enjoy some weak winter sun surrounded by threatening clouds on the horizon on flat waters.  Squidding or the modern evolution 'egiing' is something I love; its low stress, high reward and complete with good company and home made salami (thanks Frank) all I need for a great day.  It seems many did it a bit harder finding squid in the middle reaches and northern end of Port Phillip Bay today however down south the inkers were plentiful although not terribly large around the tide changes.  The amount of bait visible in the water and via sonar shows just how healthy our local waters are at the moment, the fat gannets are a bit of a give away as well.
