27.06.2018 – Fishing on the Manning River, NSW

Today Mike was determined to catch a fish. We have been watching a number of people taking their boats onto Manning River and catching fish. So RV Yellow Ducky was deployed.

Lee took photos of fish jumping out of the water – always where Mike wasn’t.  It was like they were making fun of him, jumping behind him.  Locals told us that those fish we’d never catch.  True.

It was a long day.  Mike caught one fish, a flat-head and of legal size. However by the time he had cleaned it, and fed the neighbourhood pelican the bits, what meat was left we decided the pelican needed more than us.

Hard to imagine, but a few years ago when the Manning River flooded, the floating jetty rose to the top of the three black poles.
