hi raiders, hope everyone had an excellent xmas!!! decided to fish botany bay instead of sydney harbour today due to the sydney to hobart race got to the ramp around 4am with two of my bff (best fishing friend) plan A was to troll the heads the wind and swell looked ok from the forecast which was not 100% accurate more of a 50/50 guess work anyway decided to go straight to molli point which was plan B and catch some bait the wind was starting to blow when we got to molli point and decided to anchor around the reef but one of my bff started to get seasick swell was around 1m so decided to troll the south heads which felt like forever to get there swell was getting bigger and bigger as we get near the south heads so decided to turn back to molli point when we got back to molli point one of the rods went off with the rapala longcast in pilly/sardine color and after about 5mins we landed our 1st fish for the day a 60cm kingy which went back to fight another day one of my bff asked me if he can go back to the ramp coz he was really gettting seasick seriously so trolled back to the ramp to drop him off decided to troll the 3rd runway from end to end for zeros so decided to head back to molli point half way down molli point towards the beach two of the rods went off one with the rapala longcast in pilly color and one with the halco dd redhead after about 10mins we got 2 bonito in the esky trolled molli point 3x more but no more takers so decided to anchor at the reef hoping to catch anything that we can take home plenty of throwbacks around the 25cm mark (trevs/snapper/flattys) were using pillys and prawns for bait hooked one pj and one banjo on pillys after about 1hr decided to troll molli point again for zeros so decided to go back to the ramp where one of my bff had fully recovered got home around 3pm thanks for reading
