    Wild cod country

    Nice adventure boys. Great pics. I gave the cod a go last year while I was in Dubbo in the Macquarie River but didn't have any luck. We only got bass and some shrimps. But was a great family trip.

    Port Hacking long overdue trip

    I know but doesn't meet the requirements. For me though, it was a tasty catch of the year Family feast on it's own. Can't wait to get out there again.

    Thanks. You know me when there's no work (which isn't often) I'm out on the water. The Chrissy break will be good.

    Port Hacking long overdue trip

    Hi Dave Been a workaholic in 2016, can't complain though. The Goat fish was an amazing site to see in the water, it's equal to the red gurnards which I have let go every time I have caught them but this poor goaty had to come home as I was well over buying fish. The Macko was a beauty, you never know when they are going to pop up and not far from my boat was a man paddling a kayak.

    I've never seen one that size, it was nice to bring it in. Tasted great too, baked in the oven.

    The fish was very tasty compared to eating from the fish shops. Kids made a short way of the Trevally, they love it cut as sushimi.

    Thanks Stephan. Can count my fishing trips this year on my left hand. It's great to be out on the water fishing.

    Port Hacking long overdue trip

    Hi Raiders It's been a while so just thought I'd put in a report on my last Wednesday's trip to the Hacking. Fished Bate Bay early morning and was happy with anything really as haven't been able to get out in a while due to work commitments. Tried all different reef areas in the bay on the drift and found it was very quiet until around lunchtime where I started my berley trail in the northern side of the bay. Anchored up in 60ft of water. It was a nice feeling pulling up fish (haven't done that in a while). From 12.30pm to 2.30pm I was able to bring up some Trevally, Snapper, Black Spotted Goat Fish (which is a first for me), Flathead and a few squid and the usual reefies. The finishing touch to the day was having a very large Macko come up to the boat which I got him on the heavy gear with a floating pillie soaked in tuna oil which gave me awesome fun and then released him boat side. Only used Pilchard for bait. Was a great day out. As us Greek's will say "to barbouni irthe spiti". Sorry, only have pictures of the goat fish as fishing took over that day.

    Port Hacking

    Nice morning to be on the water Dave and a great mixed quality feed too. Haven't wet a line in ages myself due to work overload, soon I hope. Hopefully the fish stay on for a while before the water cools off. Chris.

    Bilge pump for a pongrass

    Hi Andrew, many years ago I installed a bilge pump to my 18ft pongrass I owned. What I did was cut a section out of the rear floor and there is plenty of room for you to put a bilge pump in. And I then just sica flexed a Perspex sight window over the hole neatly to close the opening. Chris.
