    Finding it hard to see why lighter trace works

    Fished for kings with largish unweighted peeled prawns and unweighted pillie cubes in a berley trail many times. Caught plenty on on 12lb using this method. Then there are the days that we could see the Kings in our trail feeding and following hooked trevs or bream to the boat. As hard as we tried they would not take a bait that had a line attached to it. We then drop down to a 10lb leader and the Kings are straight onto it. It would seem that at times, that small bit of difference in line diameter seems to make all the difference. Cheers

    first holiday fish

    Looks like a Golden Perch to me. The mouth is too big for it to be a Silver Perch. Silver Perch have small mouths.

    Yes, with a loose drag and line being stripped at a rate to match the current.

    Botany Bay

    Hi everyone We decided to take our boat out to botany bay on Saturday and see if we could catch a few fish for a feed. We loaded up on yakkas and then proceeded to downrig them around a few markers, Mollineoux Pt and the Bare Island bommie. We had no luck at any of these spots. At this stage we found a spot to anchor up and soak a few baits. After we got a good burley trail going we started to get some hits. Most fish were undersize Trevs and Snapper with the odd Bream thrown in the mix. We had a live yakkas out but something kept biting their heads off. I decided to not waste our headless yakkas and filleted them up. We sent yakka fillets down into our berley trail. We started to get takes form Kingies every now and again as the school would pass by. Sometimes we had double hook ups. We landed a few and lost few. The biggest for the day was lost on the anchor rope. We kept four legals 65-68cm and released 8 or 9 just undersize models. We also landed a 54cm Tailor. We lost a few more Tailor due to being bitten off near the hook. We called it a day after that and headed back to the ramp. Here is a couple of pics. The little guy is my godson Thomo.
