We are on our way to Brooklyn it is cold and drizzling but clearing up ahead. The traffic is light. It is looking like a cracker weekend.

The mothership will be a great place to stop for a hot cuppa and a chat between 1 and 2 today on our tactics and to register.

Hope to see lots of raiders over

the weekend.

Message to bluefin chasers - tie wet socks on the end of your game rod and see what the bluefin fight like. At least the hairtail have got teeth and give a fight :)

Good luck to all Fishraiders spending the weekend on the Hawkesbury for the Hairtail social.

Stay safe, stay warm, have fun and hope that the hairtail have read the script and play ball.

Sorry we cant be with you as thoroughly enjoy this social, but health and recuperation comes first.

We have landed two and lost one at the back of the boat. It was a huge fish and simply broke our line. Cest la vie. We continue trying.

I have a pic of a Hairtail we caught last night but don't know how to post. Is there someone I can email or SMS to and they can post it?

Catching this Hairtail has a funny tale attached to it. Once we took the picture I put it in a bucket but, unbeknown to me, the thing was still alive. Next thing it jumped out of the bucket and was slithering along the deck, then, it found the gap which leads to the scuppers and blow me down if it didn't get itself completely down there in a nano second. The next task was trying to work out how to get the stupid, wiggling, snapping thing out of there. So I got a knife and pinned its tail then got my wife to hold the knife. I grabbed the fish pliers and over the next 10 minutes I tried to grab it. Finally I succeeded and pulled it out by the tail. then, my wife drops the knife down the scuppers and we can't see it. So I now have to get in the sub arctic temperature water today and put my hand up into the scupper outlet to grab the knife. Should have stayed in bed!

Seriously, you guys should get out here, the feeling of friendship and the joy of being out with a group of like minded people is terrific.
