Exclamation Pictures....for you northern fustrated friends

Here are the pictures from Nettle Bay in the French Side of the simpson bay Lagoon. Result of this pm fishing : 1 Stupidly missed (forgot to tighten the reel drag ), 1 Hook Pulled because of nervousness caused by the above mentioned stupidity, and 1 brake on a freight train size bone, on the second run (tried to give an extra pressure on the drag and the big guy didn't like it at all)

Somedays you are just goof and that's it!

Weather : Overcast and windy and the light reflection on the clouds didn't help, but since the tide was going down I located them by the tail swirls over the grass beds. I enjoyed it anyway.

For the Virgin Islands fellow : So Far, for the last 2 years we were only 2 guys really fishing the bones, so they are not so picky and they will approach you scarely close (6ft) untill you move an eyebrow and they do their magic disappearing trick will all know.

Cheers to you all
