I headed straight across to Woolooware bay and started slow rolling cranks like the saemi 50 in sleazy shrimp and the DTSCO in Yamame over the flats on the south side off the bay with only a couple of under size bream, so I slowly made my way over to fish the edges of the mangrove's.

"Hobie fishing worlds IV qualifying event held at Marlo.
Day 1 saw 61 anglers hit the water! It was an interesting start to the day as it was the start of duck season in Marlo and as soon as it was bright enough to see outside it sounded like a war zone with gun shots coming from all directions within the surrounding areas, and camouflage boats with hunters zooming round.
1st Place for Joe Franco
WA Field Staffer claims 1st Place in the Kayak section of the Southern Series. Here is his report of the event
"Arriving at the days launch location , I quickly got pleasantries out of the way and set the yak up and before I knew it, it was time to launch. The four boats set off minutes before the yaks all heading downstream. Most of the yaks headed upstream so I chose to follow the boats. As I passed by a boat both anglers were hooked up to rats which were plentiful, so a few hundred metres ahead I set my drift and first cast on the D grub it got whacked on the drop off, it felt fairly weighty so I took my time getting it up only to realise it was a flounder.... I put a few more casts into that bank before moving onto the first lot of flats.
