So glad we went ahead with the private group class at Victoria Point this afternoon.

Everyone had a great time pumping yabbies.

Dragging the net, they caught a 37cm dusky flathead, whiting, toadies, bony bream and a small sand crab.

Plenty of whiting were caught on the rods, including a stonker of a whiting measuring 35cm and bream.

So lucky with the weather today at Deception Bay for Moreton Bay Regional Councils Active Holidays program.

Plenty of yabbies were caught just after low tide. Only toadies and small male crabs caught in the net.

There was only one whiting caught and nearly landed a mud crab.
