    Bream in the mangroves

    hard bodies work just as well. you need something that runs shallow preferably in a minnow or shad style between 40-60mm keep the rod tip high and a twitch pause retrieve seems to work best, you need to keep the rod tip up otherwise the trebles will catch in the roots and once they do they don't come out easily some lures I've done well on are black magic bmax, strikepro pygmy and pontoon 21 crackjack

    I guess it's like fishing. What do you want to do with it?

    cmap vs navionics

    Will second that have both and never use c-map as Navionics is better (more detail). Something else just to be wary off, the new Active Imaging transducer does not appear to be comparable with the HDS Carbon like you might see stated in some places. Agree the Carbon is good pricing at the moment (purchased one recently for this reason). Side by side with a HDS Gen 2, the Carbon resolutions is so much better.

    I fish Wanda beach quite a bit. There was a Saturday morning three or four weeks ago I saw up to 5 big fishing boats in distance . Maybe those were the trawlers as well? Charles

    Nice fish there. My wife says I swear too much when I lose a fish, so her fishing rod is almost brand new though many years old.

    I pulled out a few slimies from the bottom amongst the flatties, could be right.

    Thank you all. One thing I forgot to mention was that while I was anchored, I pulled out a sweep on the yakka line, killed it and threw it out. Dead sweep float on the surface, so I feed them to the sea eagles that cruise about. None turned up today as they were fishing elsewhere. The sweep was only in the water a short time, when a small fin appeared and something grabbed the sweep. Did not see the head, nor much of the body, but the fin and tail were light to mid brown in colour and the critter was not a lot over the metre mark. The tail popped out of the water twice during the feeding, the upper lobe was long compared to the small lower tail lobe, and there was a triangular patch of skin near the top of the upper tail lobe. My shark book indicates something similar to a bull shark, or other related sharks. As the kingies are cruising about, so will the bigger critters be there.

    I have heard that the pros have been working Bate bay for slimies, maybe that was what they were doing ? Ron

    Nice catch for the Hacking shows what an early start, local knowledge and experience can achieve. I looked at the mouth of Yowie's Bay on my way back to the ramp Sunday just on dark. Was very tempting Bruce

    Sometimes the impellor vanes deteriorate right at the base where they will crack and get to the point where they will rip right off withour warning leaving just the guts attached to the drive shaft. Pull off the water intake screens on the leg too see if theres any bits of rubber in there as that's where they usually end up.

    Headed out early this morning near the mouth of Yowie Bay. Best baits were slimy strips from a couple I caught in Bate Bay the other day. The reddies, only just pannies, and the jew took the slimy baits. Handline jew for a good fight. Around sun-up, the pickers moved in and chewed off baits in no time. A bit hard to see in the photos, but 2 of the reddies had a piece missing from the back of the neck just before the dorsal spines. Upon filleting, no problem seen with the fish's spine, just a piece of flesh missing like a small bite mark. Predicted the jew would shrink a little after capture, so I judged it right to be just above legal size. Moved up to near Greys Point and spotted surface action. After many casts and a few follow ups to a small metal lure, hooked up a small kingie, but the hook pulled after a while. The kingies swam around the boat, around the 50 to 55cm mark. Headed to South West Arm for the tailor, only hit on the lure up there.

    Me too. I took mine out once many years ago out of Port Stephens, she hooked a Mutton Bird and has refused to touch a rod ever since.

    Rod set up for whiting on poppers

    Sand flats with life weedbeds baitfish etc.... look for small whiting in the shallows where theres small ones bigger ones wont be far away Work the entire sand flat, whiting will patrol around and come from long distances to hit a popper don't be afraid to work over the deeper edges

    Cracking day in Broken Bay

    My main area for Blue spots is around the 30 to 35 metre mark. Have also caught them in 15 to 20 metres at times, and, the occasional one out from Lilli Pilli in 10 metres of water. Not big fish near Lilli Pilli, but most of them a bit over legal size.
