Took the family on a rod trip, 1st stop Batemans Bay. Didn’t do much there, hang out near the oyster farm for lunch and there were a school of decent bream camping. Tossed out our 🦐 heads and they smashed. Didn’t fish, so we wanted to prawn so went and check Durras Lake! Got there at 8.30 pm not a very comfy drive with the family lol, it was all dark the road were very tight.. the mrs kinda go scare.. got there. So I got out of the car and check out the area. It was decent and shallow water, but it wasn’t fully dark, tend got a call from the mrs! Saying get ur arse back! I left the window open while she and the boy waiting inside! Rather then seeing prawns! We saw countless mosquitos!! Inside the car!!! So I know this is a No No! Drove back and chill at our cabin.
2nd stop Metung! Beautiful waterfront at the mooring. The place have also changed a lot compared to 2 years ago! The mussel were gone... 2 years ago they were everywhere, you can easily get a feed. But this year... I can’t even spot them....
the prawns were also really slow!! The whole lake were flooded with weed. Not good for prawning. So we skip it again.
Went out on a boat for some crabbing. Which were productive. Every 5 minutes we were hauling in sand 🦀. It was fun.
did manage a decent size flatty when I woke up early. Just 1 hr of fishing all up.
