Two fisherman who sparked a major search on the state's south east coast yesterday have been found performing 'donuts' in the water.

The pair, aged 33 and 17, was spotted in the water about 150 metres off the Port Albert boat ramp around 8.45 last night.

The operator of the vessel, a 33-year-old Yarram man, was breath-tested and returned a reading of .102.

He's expected to be charged on summons with exceeding the prescribed concentration of alcohol, unlicensed operation of a vessel, failing to wear a flotation device, speeding, failing to carry flares and supplying alcohol to a minor.

  • Absolute and utter stupidity. I hope every charge sticks. What worries me, is that they had to get there somehow. I hope the police have ensured there will be no driving involved in their return to their homes.
