Moreton Bay Dolphins

Fishing on Moreton Bay in Queensland, Australia a few years ago, I had to pull in my line when a pod of curious dolphins came to say hello. I was amazed at how friendly they were considering they had a couple of very small babies with them. I was so tempted to jump into the water with them. Instead, I leant over the side of the boat and had a chinwag. I think this pod is the one that visits Tangalooma and is comfortable with human contact and associates us with food. I gave them my fish. I wasn’t doing well anyway and only caught enough fish to make cleaning them a pain and I had way more enjoyment feeding the dolphins.
I love fishing but get a bit “girly” killing my catch. Gutting and cleaning them doesn’t bother me. I don’t like using live bait. I get all sorry for the poor bait thing when sticking a hook in it alive.

Me and my mates

Enjoy your weekend

    So beautiful, lucky you! When I lived on Port Phillip Bay I would often take the ferry across and see the dolphins dancing in the wake – they are just the most joyful animals 🙂
