    Illawong Bay

    Hi mate. I was on a kayak out in bay 6km. Came by illawong bay the sounder picked up a lot of fish even hairtails. People were casting at wrong spots. I told them what depth and how far. There is fish there. Use fresh bait hawkesbury prawn and pillhards. Last night it was so windy could not fish there. I caught breams when it was noisy there, or maybe I got lucky. There are sensitive fish. Good luck. Cheers

    Hairtail season in Cowan creek

    I posted if anyone would join me for a session of Hairtail and kindly members replied with good feedbacks and information. The day started well, did all my home chores and family matters. Arrived at Akuna bay set for launch and testing all my electrical but trolling motor would not start wasted 1 hour. Peddled out to Jb took me 75mins. So many boats. Disappointed a party boat anchored at my hot spot. Dozen drunk men screaming, swearing and music so loud you hear them a mile away. Anchored 100m away from them and these guys were so abusive. It annoyed me crazy but there were having fun. Sounder showed lots of fish the whole time I was there and I think it was hairtails. Cast my first rod and preparing 2nd rod the float disappeared fish on. Dropped and missed many hairies but had I good time out there caught 5 total and a yellowtail. Tide changed around 9.30pm and bites gone off. Tides is going out but sounder showed lots of hairtails but there have gone deeper water from 5 to 6m to new depth 9 to 10m. Not a single bit for half an hour. My mobile rings strangely normally dont get a single here. My daughter calls and says are you ok and replied why? Its blowing so hard at home be careful out there. I take her advice and started packing up. It was very calm night no wind in Jb, as soon as anchor is up wind picked up getting choppy. Struggled from shark rock point to Cottage point open waters. In the middle of bay got blown away, for 20mins top speed 0.75km/h Got to Illawong wind was behind me and pushing 4km/h no paddle no peddling great. Total voyage time 120mins. A good exercise and good feed catch night. Loved it.

    Hairtail season in Cowan creek

    I launch from akuna bay marina boat ramp. Nice car park and well lighted and safe area and free carpark as long as your have national park ticket. No evidence of car window breakages. I think there is security there. Bobbin head appletree has boat ramp but not sure leaving in the carpark I've seen alot of window breakages. Use akuna bay its 2km closer to Jerusalem bay. But a bit of drive depending where you live. Cheers

    Hairtail season in Cowan creek

    Hi Jim its Hobbie pa14 with ama sidekick outrigger. Some might say overkill with outrigger but I have flipped this stable kayak and lost my gears, since with sidekick it's near impossible to flip unless in surf. Its mirage peddle drive 180. Reversible. I have paddle for emergency but 99% never used. I have a motor to assist long voyages and coming back makes it effortless. Does 5.7km/h best water conditions and with mirage 7.4km/h. That's maximum speed for hobbie pa14 the hull speed. The motor is Bixpy jet. It's about 1hp motor driven by 404w lithium battery with remote control runs 80min full power or 3hrs half power. I carry 3 battery and full power unless trolling at low speed. Sitting on a vantage seat it's incredibly comfortable I was on this seat for 10hrs. I do offen get up and stretch my legs the ama sidekick make it so stable and safe. Use coopper anchor 1kg blue, rigged with quick trip link no cable ties if it gets stuck reset very easy. 50m rope attached to a small boay with quick release carabina. Anchor can be dangerous at swells and strong currents the ama sidekick makes so safe to pull in your anchor at any angle or position. Behind the seat is hobie xl live well tank 42litre. Keeps all my catch alive even my hairtails. It comes with 4 rod holders. Battery operated built in to pump fresh seawater to tank. The h- rail on pa14 is versatile and easy to install all your accessories rod holders, cup, cutting board ,souder. I use lawrance 4 sounder. I transport my my kayak on trailer but never wet my trailer. I have boondox landing gear, a permanent installed wheel system on kayak, launch any where. For sand I have sand wheels. For night fishing I have railblazer attaching system front and back boat lights. On the boondox accessory can be attached , I have 1 inch ram ball to 1meter adjustable stand and flood with daylight led light attached. All the batteries are inside the kayak. This kayak has huge deck and storages. I use 6 to 7 foot rods. Daiwa , Abu garcia Reels 2 to 4 thousand.Daiwa, pflueger. Cheers Myung
