Luckily the weather was calm for the duration of our stay however, the forecast for Friday was not looking quite as good so we opted to leave Lady Musgrave mid morning on Thursday the 16th and head back to the main land. As our arrival was to be at night we decided that we would aim for a small anchorage in Rodd Harbour which is just south of Gladstone. We ended up dropping our anchor in a little bay near Bircher Point around 19.30 on Thursday evening.
After hearing of many fish caught on the way out to Lady Musgrave we thought we better put the line in for the trip back to Australia. Many hours went by without a thing but late in the afternoon we saw some ruffles on the water so figured we were in luck. Well we were, kind of, we managed to hook something but unfortunately it was a bit big for the line and also the angler holding the rod as whatever it was broke the line which was very disappointing but may have been for the best as Mark may have had to deal with an MOB otherwise, As well as getting a new lure and trace to get us back into fishing action we are now also considering getting a larger reel with heavier line that we can fix to the push-pit just in case we hook another BIG ONE!!
After a very calm night we rose to another sunny and calm morning and after doing a few chores on the boat and hopefully a bath off the back we are hoping to head to Turkey Point which is only a couple of miles further down the harbour. The books tell us that there is a small township in there so we will head ashore for an explore to see what we can find
