Conditions looked pretty good and as Friday afternoon came around the wind dropped and things were all lining up. Getting out to the reef took no time at all and was comfortable in small swell. The fishing was very slow with a few trevally and mangrove jacks, a couple of job fish. Half way through the night a storm whipped up and it was un-fishable. Conditions in the morning were perfect but nothing biting except sharks and hussar, however Steve managed a spangled emperor to save the day.
