  1. G’day raiders, Just a quick report from this arvo. Had the opportunity to get out with Woodsy for a couple of hours after work today! The champ had already caught a heap of livies before he picked me up so we headed straight for Broughton! Drifted the sisters with plenty of bait present but no fish so we moved on! Hit our next mark and the bait was present again but no real takers! We persisted and I managed a couple of pannies which were returned and Woodsy had a couple of enquiries. There was only enough time for a couple of more drifts before the southerly hit and a change of sp was all that was needed. Cast out and got nailed, this thing used every bit of the current and put up a good fight until it was well netted by Woodsy! A couple of pics and time to cast again! Next cast, I barely had time to put the bail arm over and was absolutely hammered by another red that nearly ripped the rod out my hand. Tried to wind and set the hook but unfortunately this brut got the better of me! By now the wind had kicked up strong and it was time to pack up! Great couple of hours on the water with Woodsy that was very much needed to clear the soul. I gave Woodsy the fish as he supplied me plenty on my dry spell last year! 😝 Thanks for reading...... Cheers scratchie!!!

    Great report Jim. At least you managed a feed and spent some quality time on the water! I’m very lucky I don’t suffer from sea sickness but I know what your talking about the motion thing!! Especially when the bed keeps swinging side to side. Haha 🤣 cheers scratchie!!!

    Lake Cathie- found a feed!!!

    G’day raiders, Just a quick report from up here! I’m currently up here watching 3 of my kids compete in the State Cup touch football competition. My wife manage to book us a great accommodation unit on Lake Cathie. So yesterday arvo I walked down to the inlet and threw hardbodies for half an hour. Managed a nice flatty (released) a few other hits and got smoked by a good one on 4lb. This arvo, I went back with Jnr looking for some fish with an upgraded leader. The boy said he was keen for fish tacos tomorrow night, so the plan was to keep a few! Beautiful afternoon and the fish didn’t disappoint us! Kept these 4 and managed another whilst the young fella was cleaning the fish! Cheers scratchie!!!
