Great gonna have a day fishing. Head off at 6.15am for a two hour drive to 'the spot'. Port Welshpool west of Melbourne. Get there & it's blowing a gail but not cold. Catching a few fish, flathead, mullet, trevally, bay trout & a puffer. (poisonous) Anyway get a double header. A tiny flathead on one hook & a bay trout on the other. Decide to do the trout first & put it away after bleeding it. Turned back ready to chuck the tiny flathead back & there's this bloody big bird standing there with the flathead in its mouth. Slowly walk towards it & up it goes. Up goes the flathead. Up goes the slack line. Then to my horror up goes the rod. This mungrel bird carries it about two metres then drops the fish. Down goes the fish. Down goes my rod. It hit the side of the jetty &....splash sinks out of sight as it heads toward the bottom. Like I said....BLOODY BIRD. That was one expensive fishing trip. Around A$100.
