    Port Stephens- Brut snapper!

    Sure mate. Stay at Halifax camping grounds and launch at little beach! Your about 2km from the heads there! And it’s 14 km to Broughton Island

    Why would you put yourself through that pain? 😩 They go hard enough on conventional gear! Well done 👍 cheers scratchie!!!

    Wasn’t that easy rick! Water was super clear with vis at 15m on some areas. Had to move around to find them!

    Haha, not with my kids mate. They’ve been brought up with rod in hand. So every man for themselves!

    Berley - pellets/bread vs only pilchard

    Yeah, stale bread, bits of fish! Anything really. Whilst berley can be important, it’s more important to be in the right spot!!!

    Great report Jim. Had a good day on the water, picked up a feed and home by lunch. Perfect 👌 Those whales, whilst majestic they are, they can certainly create some anxiety when they’re that close to the boat! Cheers scratchie!!!

    Haha, sure was! He already thought I was a genius but that just proved it! Lol. Personally, I was just happy I beat his 55cm snaps he caught! Didn’t want to hear his banter all the way home but instead he got to listen to mine 😜

    Thanks ledge! I certainly put in my fair share of time for them! How do I cook them? Many different ways! That big boy ain’t getting cooked whole, it would take a month! Haha! Mainly crumbed and shallow fried. Or filleted, baked with ginger, garlic and shallots. Sometimes just real simple baked with salt/pepper and butter. Then I make a garlic cream sauce.

    Thanks Jim. No word of a lie, it was the call of the year! Literally 3 seconds after I said “these lures only catch big fish”. Bang yewww!
