    Default Trolling for couta off a real couta boat

    I have a French WWOOFer working for me , and I've been introducing him to sailing.
    My own HS is in the shed , but I've been getting him out sailing with friends.
    One such friend is Garry Kerr , who owns the 1927 Arial .
    We were going to sail out to the Lawrence rock area , and troll for Pike .
    When we got there , we found the trolling grounds had lots of lobster pots down (an irony , since Garry is a professional lobster man) , so we sailed on , catching lots of 'couta , under sail.
    I've done this a lot with HS , and its probably easier with the smaller , more nimble boat , but I appreciate the extra room in the 'couta boat.
    Anyway , when we had the esky full , we pulled in the lure , and concentrated on the sailing.

    Not bad for a boat built in 1927 , and that worked hard for 50 years.
