  1. She loves her fishing! I reckon I’ll be the same when I reach that stage of life.
  2. Well done Geoff. Always nice to find new hotspots, especially in such a beautiful place.
  3. Headed up to The Entrance a week ago to take 81 y/o Mum out in our tinnie. She loves fishing and had been dropping plenty of hints to get me up there from Sydney! Anyway, weather was perfect and there were a few fish around though we had to move around to find them. Our main target was luderick. When things went quiet we’d flick for flatties on SP gear or stick on some bread under a float for mullet. Managed a few of our target fish. The biggest lud went 43cm, flatty 49cm and mullet a fat 41cm. The mullet circled the boat - great fun on light gear. Smaller luds < 30cm were released. All in all a great day out on the water. Cheers, Keith
  4. I've also caught a tailor on weed in the main channel at The Entrance. It would have gone close to 1kg.
  5. Thanks Rick. That was my 2nd flatty on weed - one on wire weed, the other on ribbon weed. Flatties should pick up soon as the water warms up.
  6. Great session Krispy! On any other day the trevally alone would have made your day.
  7. Spent the day in our tinny at The Entrance last weekend. Flatties were scarce. We switched to blackies and finally found a school late in the day. Ended up with a mixed bag of 6 blackies, a flatty and a bream. Also managed the rare feat of a dumb flatty on wire weed! The current was quick and he's probably mistaken it for a fish. It's amazing what they will take. Cheers, Keith
  8. Let's hope it lasts a bit longer Stapo. We had a good session up your way last weekend with plenty of blackfish and flatties from our tinny.
  9. A number of guys catch them from the ledge, however I usually fish the corner of the pool - easier & safer. It fishes well in the right conditions when there's a hole at the southern end of the beach.
  10. Nice catch Ozzybass. You're living the dream fishing mid-week! It definitely pays to downsize the leader if you're not getting bites, esp when the water is clear.
  11. Well done Drc. I was fishing for blackfish at Curly recently and a local told me he's been getting a few whiting. It's definitely worth persevering with worming. I love going down to the beach on a low tide, catching a few worms, then fishing the gutters on a rising tide. Thx for the tip re SAX scent!

    Long Reef

    Thank so for the tip KB. You must have balls of steel to fish out there at night on a high tide!
  13. Sounds like a brilliant session. Pound for pound there's few fish that fight like a pig. They also taste great!
  14. Nice haul guys. Looks like a few big ones amongst them. i fished a couple of spots on the northern beaches today but only caught 3 luddies.
  15. Great to see reports coming through of harbour blackfish. Despite the winter estuary run, there are still plenty around the ocean rocks. Attached is a pic of 6 fish from a short session last weekend at Long Reef. The bite was hot for a short period before the rising tide forced me to leave. On another recent session at Long Reef I caught a rabbit fish while targeting blackfish. Eating quality wasn't great so I'll let the next one go. I'd never seen one before but read how they are venturing south with our warming water. I've also read warnings about them - if you catch one watch out for their spikey fins which are venomous and inflict an intensely painful sting. I've attached a pic to show what they look like - it's the fish at the bottom with the skinny tail that looks like a trevally. Sorry about the darkness - I hung around 'till I could no longer see my float! Cheers Keith
