    I often use whiting and tailor for Jew. A slimie head for snapper is a gun bait. I also use bonito for kings and marlin! As paddyT said, fish eat fish! Cheers scratchie!!!
  2. Wow! Congrats on a good session! Did you mean 1.06cm or 160cm??? Sorry but I’m not seeing a 70lb fish there! Cheers scratchie!!!
  3. Great report Sam and I’m glad your happy your boat! Just don’t let your dad put the fuel in! Haha cheers scratchie!!!
  4. I feel your pain rick! We can put up with many weather conditions but wind is the worst. Let’s hope next weekend is better as I’ve got my Comp on! cheers scratchie!!!

  7. Chris, i have moved this to the correct section where you may get more of a response. Cheers scratchie!!!
  8. Sounds like a great day! Good to see you get out and put up a report Jim! Cheers scratchie!!!
  9. Ummm, I remember following you at glenbawn and he banked it because he thought he did! Enjoy, great place! My kids loved it up there. Will have to return one day!
  10. Looks awesome guys! Enjoy yourselves and for memory, don’t forget to put the bungs in swordie! cheers scratchie!!!
  11. Losing a good fish is always what makes us go back for more! I’d say you hooked a kingy. Once they see the boat they usually take a second run and that sounds what has done you! I never adjust my drag during the fight and have seen many people come undone doing this. Adjust your drag prior to the fish your targeting and play it out! Just my opinion! Better luck next time! Cheers scratchie!!!
  12. If it makes you feel any better, I had a shocker today too! Perfect conditions for my usual snapper haunts and not a touch! Sometimes fishing can be like that. Lucky I found some kings to save the day and managed 3 legal out of 30 rats! Next time mate!!! cheers scratchie!!!
  13. It was from the hard fight it put up on the hand line!
  14. That’s a fair lump of a flatty yowie! And kings and Jew on handlines, love it!!! Nice work! Cheers scratchie!!!
  15. Boom! My two favourite fish to target, catch and eat right there! Isn’t it great when a plan comes together! Well done cheers scratchie!!!
