Hi Birding-aussers, it is with some regret that I have to inform you that I have ceased operations with Sea World at Southport, on the Gold Coast. They had served us well over the last six years but in recent times the deckies had been whimping on us. Thus we had not been getting out to where we intended, even when conditions were not too bad, when conditions are too severe one doesn't venture out anyway.
The other mob we used were becoming a chore also, too much time wasted checking out new fishing spots and having to come back early to get the boat ready for night-charter. So, I'm taking a rest until at least the New Year, I've been running these things for ten years now. It'll give me a chance to get on more of the other pelagics.
I would really like to thank Birding-Aus for providing us a forum for new contacts and subsequent patrons. This is not a pemanent disbanding, only temporary. I'll be looking at establishing a pelagic venue somewhere else, possibly in Northern NSW but more likely from the Sunshine Coast. I'm very keen to get out onto the Barwon Banks adjacent to Noosa. If any Sunshine Coast subscribers have any ideas I'd be very keen to hear them. Cheers & good birding - Paul Walbridge.
