I spent the weekend away in Canberra, the national capital city of Australia, to celebrate my 24th Wedding Anniversary with my wife... We went into Parliament House and took some photos in

SOUUeeeeee!!!! What a pig out of San Diego!!! We were using WAY too light of gear for this 220# bluefin this morning and it KICKED our asses for 5 hours. 

Happy Birthday Dad. 88 and you are a dead set legend. Love you dearly.

House has been completely remodeled now the outside is getting a re-make. One more week to get the stoops finished and the pavilion built. I can’t wait to use the new patios.

July 4th vacation with the family.  Wife had a professional photographer come out to the house to take pictures of the grandchildren.  Of course, had to sneak one of my own pictures in - "My Three Sons" is going in the man-cave !

Looking good @Devo and @GVan!!

My brother and I linked up with some nice snook. They’re no @Kaptain Karl slobs, but fun as hell to fight.

Awesome. I've trolled for snook several times in the Panama canal and always came up empty. Always left with a ton of peacock bass though. Good times. 

We were lucky. This is the time of year where the bite is red hot. They’re migrating and spawning right in the inlet (a couple other areas also). The water was so clear you could see hundreds if not thousands in certain areas.

good fish. 

not something we encounter down here.

my one chance at snook was fishing las salinas. i usually have a fabulous guide but on one occasion, i ended up with the village idiot. bone lazy. in the end, the only bones i caught that day were when i actually walked off and found some myself, off a sand bank.

at one stage, when i presume he knew i was seriously pissed with him (although perhaps he didn't know because at the end of the day, he clearly expected a tip - so i said i would give him a tip - don't be such a lazy sod and actually try and help the client catch a fish instead of chain smoking from the first minute and having to stop punting every five minutes because you are stuffed. he seemed shocked), two large fish swam next to our punt.

i asked what they were.

snook.

don't we fish for those?

well, you can if you want. 

by the time i got the rod ready, they were long gone and there was just the steam coming out my ears.

The Snook do look a little bit like a saltwater barramundi caught in the ocean

Sounds like you DID get stuck with the village idiot.  Needless to day, he didn't get a 5-star Yelp rating 🤣

Thanks buddy! I thought it looked like a big tuna until I typed snook fish on Google (totally different fish after all) 😂.

Better keep those boxwoods shaped up!  Looks great, Noonan!

What happened to the built in bbq you had?

I've been eyeing a gas/charcoal combo bbq.

 

Di had it for around 12 years and even after a few rebuilds, the Matador was near end of life. We cleaned it and sold it.

Yeah, they've taken a beating throughout the remodeling process.  We'll see how they recover next spring.
