18/10/2012 Half Day Afternoon With Khali With Smithys Fishing Out Of Mooloolaba

Khali booked this in as they were coming down from Rocky to look at buying a car with her dad.  We headed back to Noosa as one of the game guys had found the bait again and tagged a marlin and was catching a few mack tuna.  We left in a stiff 15knot SE breeze but we knew the Noosa guys were in a glass-out.  Sure enough off Coolum it changed for the better.  We got there just as the guys had finished catching a 58cm red emperor.  We drifted along only pulling small stuff.  We tried my reliable spot for a few keepers but by then the northerly was up and it was dark enough for a soft plastics fish.  First drift and they were on.  A few rat kings made their presence felt.  A short while late Khali’s dad hooked something better.  Sure enough, it was a nice snapper in the 60-65cm range.  We got a few more follows up from kingies but it had gone a bit quiet.  We tried a couple of other lumps and then came in.
