    Big shore based Barra

    Looks very much like Cahills Crossing, on the border of Kakadu and Arnehem Land to me. Very Crocky...
  2. Hi All... Headed out from Botany Bay at around 9:00am Saturday morning with a plan to find a significant temp break a few miles North-East of Browns, which was showing up on the charts. We started trolling at around the 12-Mile, water temps looked good getting into 23’s… then dropped back to 22’s after Browns.. we forged on and found high 23’s 6 nM North-East of Brows, and things looked good. We found scattered bait from the shelf, with plenty of reports of Marlin strikes on the radio closer inside the shelf (most appeared to be Stripies.... with a lot of them throwingng the hooks). First strike at 3:45pm saw a rampaging blue hit the short-rigger, and start tail-walking away from the boat. He took a couple of hundred metres from the 50W before everything went limp… the double snapped around the swivel… a period of loud cursing followed. Second strike at 4:00pm again saw a rampaging blue hit the short-rigger, and start tail-walking away from the boat. He took a couple of hundred metres from the same 50W, and then continued to do so with great speed… He then decided to go deep…. An hour later and we had him to the boat.. another 15 mins and we had the trace in hand… My first marlin in 5 years... with dozens of fruitless trips since then..... Stats: Blue Marlin Short Length: 2.3m (Charts call it 110kg..we called it 150kg.. it had a girth that resembled John Candy in his prime ) Gear: 24kg Lure: ScentBlazer Slant Head Big Purple thing (purchased 12 months back via a FishRaider package deal.. it’s in the attached photo) Cheers, Ed.

    Shimano Tiagra 50WLRSA

    Note that the Shimano Tiagra 50WLRSA (as opposed to the standard 50WA), has a drag designed to fish 80lb line. This means that the drag profile will be more suited to 80lb tackle (it has the same/similar drag setup as the 80WA). My discussions with Welsey's tackle (http://www.wellsystackle.com/sunshop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=698), is that you should only get the LRS (Long Range Special), if you intend to fish 80lb. Sounds like that is what you are intending to do anyway. Cheers, Ed

    Terrigal Beach 1st Schoolie

    Hey Guys.. Did this school shark have any teeth at all? Looks like a small bronzed whaler to me? Ed.

    Crew Needed

    Hey Jamie, Mate - I am very keen for some JB fishing action. I am sydney based, but have a place in Berrara (30 mins south of Nowra), which I am at every second weekend (am there this weekend). Sounds like there are marlin around, and probably kings etc around the JB entrance/headlands. I have more fishing gear than I can poke a stick at, including blue water stuff (Tiagra's etc), which are desperate to get used. I can go at the drop of a hat, and am more than willing to chip in with costs, wash-down and maintenance, etc... I have a coxswains certificate, and have worked as a fishing guide in the northern territory a few years back. Give me a bell if you are keen for a fish this weekend. Cheers, Ed Cain 0419 416 926

    Yellowfin

    Hi Michael, I am very keen to be part of the crew on game boat out of Sydney. I am desperate to get in as much bluewater fishing as I can. I have more fishing gear than I can poke a stick at, including blue water stuff (Tiagra’s etc), which are desperate to get used. I can go at the drop of a hat, and am more than willing to chip in with costs, wash-down and maintenance, etc... I have a coxswains certificate (commercial skipper), and have worked as a fishing guide in the northern territory a few years back. Cheers, Ed Cain 0419 416 926 ps - I was on a charter 30 miles out of Jervis last weekend, we saw plenty of massive golden kegs busting the surface, but only managed 2 small alabacore all day. I am now more keen than ever.

    Boatless?

    Hey BillyD, Firstly - I am a massive fishing nut. My fishing mate (with boat) is recently with child, and has had his manhood removed in the process. I am planning to buy a boat in the next 12 months, but very keen to be part of the crew on another boat in the meantime. I have more fishing gear than I can poke a stick at, including blue water stuff (Tiagra’s etc), which are desperate to get used. I can go at the drop of a hat, and am more than willing to chip in with costs, wash-down and maintenance, etc... Oh – and I have a coxswains certificate, and have worked as a fishing guide in the northern territory a few years back. Cheers, Ed Cain 0419 416 926
