    Boat capacity rules in nsw

    Just like our 38Ft Mustang was only able to carry 9 people yet my 19Ft Bow rider can carry 7.

    Hacking. Bloody hard work!!

    or a Maybe the tide is a bit fast for the jig, put a ball sinker on the nose or a short distance from it as you may not be getting deep enough to raise any interest.

    I reckon it’s still worth a trip to that 130-160 meter mark for a good crack at a stripe, seems to be a consistent run of them at the moment. Can’t beat fresh dollies though on the tooth well done

    Cheers mate. I averaged about 50km/hr there and also averaged about 50km/hr on the way back!!! But by far the best part of the day was having the traps all to ourselves. Not a boat in sight for milessssss Cheers big Neil. Thanks Baz. They will be heading your way soon and will be bigger by the time they get there!

    Great stuff, Sam! Yeah, it appears that the marlin season has been a bit hit and miss this year. Good to see the dollies are still about!

    Port Macquarie land based fishing options

    You could try along Hasting river drive. There is a rowing club behind the football fields that has good/easy access. Further down the road past the whalebone restaurant is also worth a look.

    Carp species...how widespread?

    Upper parramatta river behind the new footy stadium used to see course fishermen get big ones 10 kg+, there also in the lake (pond) in centennial park at Homebush

    That’s a great feed there, it was a pearler of a day to be out on the water, terrific catch & report, nothing better than when the dollies play ball & your done and dusted in 2 hours

    Hi Tony, Im thinking it could be a Piedtip Cucumberfish "Paraulopus okamurai" Also I wouldn't know where to start if it wasn't for you suggestion. Thanks.

    New Extra Long Ramp at Shoal Bay???

    Sorry Zoran I seem to have forgotten to reply to this. That's pretty good fuel consumption for a 200HP ! I dont have an exact measurement but that day we did botany to browns and then south east browns and then the peak. So I'd say circa 100km.

    No problem @kingie chaserhope you get some. @LuckyFil it sure is hard to get up when it’s that early, but you definitely reap the rewards later.

    Cheers wazza ! Put one of the mahi in the oven and some flathead fillets for dinner. Same day caught. Just cant compare 👌 Cheers Zoran ! Dad has been patient hes not keen on 9 hrs sitting and trolling so hes missed out on most of the beakie trips but luckily he can get out during the week being retired. He prefers to go with me though ! Loading and offloading the 6.2m plate boat can be tough at 70 years .

    Mate smiles all around on that effort. Top report and top catch ! Glad you got out there - your dad and his mate must be chuffed to have their own charter boat at the ready.... hahaha. Cheers Zoran

    Gday raiders Well its been a learning experience for me since January. I've spent 90% of my fishing time chasing beakies with nothing to show for it apart from my first tangle in January with the inshore run of blacks and stripes. Lots of money spent on lures, tackle and fuel but hey that's fishing. By all accounts it was a quiet one off Sydney this year with a big ugly downwelling that parked its arse off Sydney pretty much Feb through March. Though some people still had luck. I will be ready for them come December. Anyway, decided to hang up my boots for the year on the marlin and get back to basics. The plan was to head wide and find some fishtraps that I had trolled past last week. I didnt have any light gear then so I kept going but today I came prepared with lures, plastics and a bag of pillies for chum. Dad and one of his friends were keen and the weather was good for it. Conditions were great and I was steaming out the heads at 60km/hr at 6am. Finally arrived to the spot I thought they were but they were no where to be seen. I was sure they would be close by so headed north and sure enough about 2km later I found them. Not sure if they had drifted or if the commercial blokes moved them, or if it was simply a different set of traps. This new trap was INFESTED with dollies. Water temp pushing 24.3 which was great. First attempt with plastic and I was onto a nice fish just legal in the kill tank it went. Dad and old mate were using pillies and were also killing it. We spent 2 hrs on this trap and after bagging a dozen good fish between 60 and 75cm we left them biting and headed into dee why wide and did a bottom bash for 15 or so flatties. Felt good to come home with a feed. I've missed this ! The neighbour got a few fish as well as the in laws. Everyone's happy! Thanks for reading Sam

    How do you lose the wire? bitten off? Why not use gang hooks? Im sure most dont use wire for tailors and never have an issue with being bitten off.

    Boat capacity rules in nsw

    Just remember those figures represent for calm waters and that one adult accounts as two children. My boat is actually smaller than yours but is permitted to carry 12 adults😱
