Scratchie

Port Stephens on fire!!

Recommended Posts

G’day raiders, 

Just a quick report from up here! I’ve headed out with my two eldest boys and what a great session on the kings! Bagged out in 30mins, all over 70cm! Couldn’t let rickmarlin have all the fun! Good to see you on the water champ! 

Gave the boys a challenge to hook a king with whatever they wanted, the chewy gum won the day! Haha 

Hopefully some snapper tonight! 

Cheers scratchie!!!

Great effort there Jeff! To think I drove right past that area yesterday again. Keep meaning to try there! Were you trolling lures or live baits?

Mate, my son caught one on chewing gum. Didn’t matter what you throw at them. Trolling or lures were the same result.

Couple of stripes and a blue caught yesterday by all reports! The fad was producing only small dollies and maybe 20 boats were out there! Water has definitely warmed up but still murky and stirred up! 

I actually ran over a small black on the way home last night. That’s the 3rd time it’s happened!

Great work there Scratchie. A few good fish, some good feeds in that lot. A southerly bump can sometimes bring them on the bite.
