    Default Back from Darwin

    Just back from a weekend away down at the Perrons west of Darwin with 19 blokes from work on 2 boats. We paid to get there, work paid for the fishing , bonding session sort of. Arrived very late Thursday night so I had some time Friday to catch up with old friends, I lived there for 10 years, but sorry no time for forumites One of the guys got carried away chasing tail and missed the boat .

    Not as many fish as in the past, seemed to do a lot more boating than fishing, but still had a ball and caught heaps. I caught the most, but unfortunately not the biggest. We all shared the catch, bringing it all home, so nothing waisted.

    Only got one piccy of me with a fish, and it wasn't even my biggest

    Wow what a feast and fit for a small army of blokes. How come i wasn't invited? lol
    Can you name what species they all are in the attached photos?
    I don't have much of a clue when it comes to salt water species other than sharks,rays excetera.

    Here's the one I was on, with 12 other guys and 3 crew. We all slept on the deck, shoulder to shoulder. The other boat was smaller, but only had 5 guys and 2 crew.

    Seeing as it was so snug shame they were all blokes there
