November 4&5 - Prawning (#9)

Monica and I set out from Cattle Point to try our hands at catching prawns in Oak/Cadboro Bays, since we had heard it was possible to catch them. I dropped some traps on the Saturday and we went again Sunday morning to check the traps. The catch was not that good, 25 or so prawns in total and we decided to leave the traps out again for the day. I went to the beach and dropped Monica off and then put the boat on the mooring. At the end of the day we went back out again only to discover no prawns at all! Just a few decorator crabs and a starfish! I guess around this area the prawning is at night! We had a nice time in the boat and I got to test out my line hauler.
