    Oil spill scenario from a surfing perspective but applies to our fishing as well. Our collective fishing voices must be loud as well.... Jim

    LBG - Jervis Bay

    Saw lots of cracking fish landed and lost at The Tubes in my juniour fishing days circa 1970-80's. We as juniours would burley up and catch Trevaley around the 1-2kg mark to be used as live bait. I remember watching a huge Hammerhead Shark zeroing in on a large livebait under a balloon with it's dorsal fin zig zagging in on the bait then disappearing and then laumching itself fully out of the water and then the fight was on. 45 minutes later it was along side the rock platform all 3 metres of it. Those were the days. Rocks I can't do anymore. Beecroft Head was also good for live baiting and spinning with lots of good size Kingfish being lost up close as there seem to be an underwater cave right at our feet. Also off the high end of Beecroft as you use to walk onto the spot was good for big Snapper but 80-100m casts were necessary. I remember being there over Easter when an East Coast Low system came down the coast. The seas were HUGE !!! Some of our club members had camped in the cave at this spot. We walked in ,in the morning and just watched the ocean. Like I said it was HUGE. No good for fishing so we met up with the campers and were all sitting and chatting and having coffee then out wide we could see a really big set building up and up and up.......a couple of the more senior guys became very quiet as we watched then the water level at the shoreline just started to drop and drop as this massive swell out wide just kept growing. We all then started hastilly moving to higher ground. The next couple of minutes was the biggest water I've ever seen moving in all over Beecroft Head even well over the high point. The "splash" ended up higher than the cliff face. All the gear in the cave was washed out into the ocean, takle boxes, sleeping bags, tents and tarps. anything that was loose was smashed into pieces, rods, reels, BBQ's. Everybody was safe and unhurt. To this day I still think about what could have been if our group decided not to go out to the spot. There was every probability that the group in the cave would have still been in there. Been back many times since and caught many good fish but the memory still lingers. Jim...

    Murray cod

    sadly there are hundreds of dead ones in the Menindee Lakes area Broken Hill. They have to let water flow more freely through the Darling River System. What about pumping water from the great coastal rivers eg Tweed/Richmond/Clarence/Macley/Manning over the Great Dividing Range ....and maybe some Hydro Electric Turbines on the down side to power the pumps moving the water up the mountains and then lots of water for fish and farmers and the ailing river systems. Our west could well become the food bowl of The World!! Just need some polititions with some forsight and some !@#$ to get the job done. I dare say there is plenty of Chinese and Oil money that could be shovelled in this direction for such an obvious infrastructure jugonaut Jim...

    Energy Bills

    Don't get too comfortable with the same energy company long term....always good to remind them to keep on being competitive.....I have been with AGL for a long while now but they needed prompting a couple of times to stay in the game... Regards Jim

    Fishing at Mosman beach

    I use a PVC pipe end cap a couple of sizes bigger than the pipe used for sand spike to push the spike into sand...much easier on the hands Jim

    Batemans Bay holiday and safety gear

    Pre-work is happening now. Once they start putting pylons in river will be interesting how fishing behaves with extra silt and extra feed from bottom being stirred up Jim...

    Batemans Bay holiday and safety gear

    If you looking for accommodation The Bridge Motel turn right on Clyde St just after the bridge over Clyde River, Boat ramp right out front. Manager Dave is great and tell him Jim sent you. Need to give these guys a hand as they are about to build a new bridge over the Clyde and eventually demolish the current draw bridge. Business is going to be tuff so I'm sure any help and custom will be appreciated. Jim...

    Sounds like my son(Nicknamed The Firebug) loves his BBQ and smoking slow cooking he's getting better at. When you ask him why.....he says why not

    sorry for my ignorance but why burn wood to create the heat to make charcoal which you are then going to burn again. sounds like your doing the job twice. I do understand the flavour of charcoal is 2nd to none. Jim..........
