    Botany bay

    Hi everyone. I fished the bay with my two sons on two occasions last week. First day we were plagued by large slimeys at the bait grounds. We managed a handfull of yakkas while we were there though. We set up at Molli pt with our livies, and soaked a few pillie tails and peeled prawns. The livies went untouched but we ended up catching numerous numbers of rat kings on the dead baits and small jigs. We left Molli pt and tried a few other spots around the bay. We only managed undersize bream and snapper. Again the live yakkas and slimeys went untouched by anything. That was it for day one. A couple of days later we made a late call to get out into the bay again. We hit the bay around 2pm with not a single bait on board. Today was a jig for squid and lure fishing day. By the time we got out the wind had picked up and the bay was rather choppy, which made fishing hard, but we were determined. Over the next couple of hours we boated half a dozen squid, which ended up as dinner that night. We also trolled a couple of hardbody lures along the breakwall which resulted in a few more rat kings. All kings on both days were released unharmed. Here's a few pics

    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.
