  1. Santiago went 84 days without a marlin in 'the old man and the sea'. I've been 97 days without a good fish - until this week. An early morning mid week departure from Apple Tree Bay ramp and nobody else in the car park or on the water. My initial plan was to catch some squid, tailor or mullet early on and fish the points and holes in Cowan for jewfish on route to the Hawkesbury, but I didn't catch any bait until lunchtime. Finally filled my tank with a dozen perfect bait sized mullet but by then it was too late to paddle to my fishing spots in the River. Plan B was a leisurely paddle
  2. Set off midweek from Apple Tree Bay , before sunrise and with picturesque tendrils of 'sea smoke' on the water. It's a 12 km paddle from the ramp to the Hawkesbury River proper and it takes me the best part of 3 hours to make the journey and catch some live mullet in the Bays for bait on route. I use a copy of chart AUS204 to identify the holes and likely jewfish haunts and slow drift the areas with a heavy sinker close to the bottom and a long trace line to a circle hook. On this occasion the unfortunate mullet was around 15cm long and nose hooked. Got the strike 1 hour before
