I've never been there, but there is a fella from here who has some outstanding catches from the place. On behalf of Counties Sport Fishing Club I'd like to thank Snapper Geoff for his part in assisting one of our club boats who came to grief there yesterday. 

A young but experienced crew tumbled over on the bar after nabbing a nice marlin. They lost a lot of nice gear but they are all ok.

Thanks Geoff.

bumped into one of them yesterday at Yeehaa, scary stuff.  Looks like they lost a bit of gear and the stuff they did have had seen better days.
