    Wollongong Snapper

    Farout Mike, that's a monster!!! So what were u 2 really doing in the cabin? Lol And don't you mean "thanks Pete for putting ME onto the really really big ones" think that's a 84cm and 80cm now. I'd happily take 3 weeks off to get an 80 hehe.

    Botany Bay magic

    Marty! Well done on the squid mate! the first few are always the hardest, once you gain some confidence, it's like the squid are attracted to it or something, and that's when they just start jumping into the bait tank . That's a shame about the king, spooled on a Sphereos 10000, now that would have been quite a decent size! If you ever find yourself in that situation again, stay calm and palm the spool, better the king try and bust you off, than it taking all your line and who knows, it might even stop. The kings are starting to show up in big numbers now, and will probably be here for another month or so. You better get back out there quick and give them kings some payback! hehe. Let me know next time you're up this way, I'll try and save you a spot on the boat and hopefully put you onto a king or 2. Take care bud!

    Kings, Tunas and PB Marlin with Video.

    Congrats again buddy! Maybe next time I'll follow you out wide instead of being so hung up on trying to getting big kings! =) Well said mate! My family was one of those 7 families that had some of that marlin. I was there when Tony was sharing the fish, and I kid you not, every single bit was shared around, not a bit went to waste.

    Maiden game fishing trip - Got marlin!

    and so you did tell me too! great call! I did a half arse attempt in game fishing last week, put 2 skirts out and man! so hard out of a small boat, and even tougher being solo LOL. but managed a few kings, so that was ok. so marlin or the salmon? which one is worse? yeah saw that apache listed, awesome looking boat! first I need to sell my one and then convince the mrs that 60K+ for a boat is worth it ehhe

    Big Dollie small boat

    very true! yes having waves bounce you around from both sides when downrigging those cliffs gets a bit hairy at times hehe

    Big Dollie small boat

    I've got a mate who has a 480 poly brumby who would be delighted to hear that a poly of that size can handle it out wide. yeah the last time I was out for dollies at the fad, was just throwing plastics, but will give the livies on the downrigger a more serious go next time.

    well done mate! was out around the same area as you earlier this week, water temp was a low 19. Heaps of fish showing on the sounder but for some reason they didn't want to play, put it down to the temp, what do you reckon?
