  4. Broughton snapper

    Hey Raiders What a great day, I went out for my second day with a great bloke his generosity with his fishing knowledge is unbelievable, thanks again Scratchie. We headed out at 5am to some rough conditions couldn’t get any bait at cabbage tree so headed up to our first spot at the island, anchored and got a bit of bait and yes he got one pretty much straight away, the conditions didn’t really improve. So we moved to One of Scratchie’s favorite spots for a few drifts, again conditions weren’t favourable so Scratchie let me in a another spot. Used heaps of smelly Berley and came up with some great snapper we lost a few real good ones as well. Mate thanks very much I had a great day except when we had the motor problem (in my boat) and took 2.5 hours to get back sorry Woodsy
  5. Kingfish Round 2

    Well Done again Scratchie. I got out there today and finally picked up a legal one, lost one at the side of the boat trying to get it in to early and got smoked by a real big one but it was great fun till the wind got to bad to stay out there. But the pens were absolutely packed people right in the middle fishing right on top of the workers, then this just came up on the NSW Dpi fisheries sight. woodsy Notice to Fishers in Port Stephens area NSW DPI and Huon Aquaculture are undertaking a research project to assess the viability of Kingfish aquaculture in offshore sea pens off Providence Bay Port Stephens. Last week, severe storms damaged one sea pen leading to the escape of Yellowtail Kingfish. Fishers are advised that a fishing closure was implemented today. Recreational and commercial and fishers may now not take fish within the Marine Aquaculture Research Lease. This is a temporary closure (till 7/2/18) to allow farm repairs and recapture of farmed Kingfish. Mariners are requested to avoid the lease area during recovery operations with ongoing diver assisted repairs to mooring infrastructure and sea pens. www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/aquaculture

    Hey Raiders First post, I got on the water yesterday at 1.30pm headed out through Swansea Heads conditions were good. Got out to 40m and had a drift for flathead but within 30mins of being out the wind and chop came right up and made things very uncomfortable, so headed into the end of Mawson break wall and anchored up for a while, only pulling in few reef fish. So headed back towards Swansea with 1 lure out and picked up 2 nice bonito. Then headed up the Chanel to the drop over in Lake Macquarie anchored near 1 of the markers cut the bonito up and finished with 2 flatties 50cm 55cm a decent bream and flounder then headed back to ramp about 7.15 when the lightening started. Gave the bream and flounder to the next door neighbor and had a bloody nice beer battered flatly and chip lunch today with the daughter. Sorry no pictures didn’t think I would ever put a post on here. Woodsy
