NT NEWS. 47 P U B : N T N E W S D A T E : 2 5 -J U L -2 0 1 1 P A G E : 4 7 C O L O R : C M Y K Mishaps the only catch to spending a day at sea Jack Feeney, of Coconut Grove, with the alligator long tom from Corroboree that bit him. It has a million teeth, he said THERES nothing better than a great day out on thewater, says Darwin fisho Jack Feeney BUT fellow boat owners would know there are a million things that can go wrong . . . I thought I would share with you my mistakes, so you might get a laugh and spare yourself the pain. My first trip out as a proud owner of a tinnie was to Shady Camp. I had no idea of the fuel usage of a two-stroke and used up one of my two tanks before getting to the mouth. We couldnt troll the mouth with the serious fishos, instead we tied to a tree and caught a catfish. We left too late and ploughed our way back through the cutting and ran into a 3m croc at full noise on the home stretch. Since then, theres been no improvement. Ive busted two sounders learning to wire 12V, broken a navigation light showing a mate how to edge up to Dinah ramp pontoon, ran my starter battery flat overnight at Corroboree, busted a transmission, bogged the car, left the bungs out, hit a croc on the road, had the starter fall apart on the East Alligator, thrown an anchor overboard attached to nothing, run old watery fuel and broken down (it was a long paddle back to the ramp), left a lure on the floor that quickly found my foot, been bitten by a long tom, spent a long day on a mud bar, snapped half a dozen rods and forgotten my Gold cans! But I havent fallen in the drink yet! ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l WEATHER ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l FISHING
