A quick whizz by the Big Mango at Bowen and we arrive at Groper Creek.
So … why are we so excited about being back at Groper Creek ? Well … there is always friendships to re-ignite – thanks Kevin for letting me borrow your cast net as I did not bring my own because they are illegal in most other states. Lots of prawns about for bait (see below). And not having a boat is no real hindrance as the jetty is a great place to catch fish (9 good whiting in one day !).
Not to mention a cold glass of Ricard sitting on the banks of Groper Creek watching the romantic sunset. Oh … and the little green visitor.
So prawns for lunch and whiting for tea … how good can life get ?
Now … about the cast net thing. Way back in 2010 a certain individual – Steve Redman of Pelican Waters – introduced us to the wonders of Groper Creek. Not only that, he spent many long hours tutoring Mr Bob Davies in the finer arts of throwing a cast net. Well, Steve, the fruits of your labours are upon us … The following sequence is about to be published in the ‘Art Of Throwing A Cast Net By Steve Redman’.
