  1. Nice work lads!! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช
  2. Try reading this, it may help a little.......
  3. Awesome work Dieter! Definitely a task and a half landing a kingy from the stones! Congrats ๐Ÿ‘ cheers scratchie!!!
  4. Great stuff KC. Thatโ€™s a decent flatly for sure. I dare say the kings will be back when the water settles. Just keep getting out there! ๐Ÿ‘ cheers scratchie!!!
  5. Wow Donna! My god have they grown up and how much older do I look! ๐Ÿ˜ข We have really enjoyed the socials over the many years and itโ€™s a shame there isnโ€™t more of them. Teaching kids to be social is a big part of their development. Whether it be through sport, communities functions, schooling etc. My kids really enjoy competing and we always travel as a family, so win win! Thanks for the photos. It took me back a few years! cheers scratchie!!!
  6. Thanks. They love their sports. Family always first. But I do enjoy me time fishing too! ๐Ÿ˜„ Thanks BN.
  7. Gday raiders, Sorry for the non fishing posts of late. Iโ€™ve been caught up with my kids and their sporting ventures. They are all extremely talented in different sports but predominantly football and netball. This weekend we spent the weekend at Port Macquarie for State Cup Touch Football in which 247 teams competed in various ages. My 3 youngest all made the rep teams and performed to the best of their abilities. Brandon and Charlise both won the State title. Some very proud parenting moments were had this weekend. Hoping to go for a flick in the morning! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  8. Elbow slapper and a half! ๐Ÿ‘
  9. Thatโ€™s a bit better of a reddy yowie! Good work of the rest too! cheers scratchie!!!
  10. Thanks yowie! Iโ€™m not bothered by the forecast as Iโ€™m out for a couple of weeks with kids sport anyway. ๐Ÿ˜ข
  11. Good to see you still about Krause! cheers scratchie!!!
  12. Yeah Rick! In hindsight, I should have known that but every boat I go on seems to have an automatic left hand turn as we go out the heads! Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ We still managed some good snapper so happy with that!
  13. Gday raiders, Just a quick report from Monday. Headed out with @back cruncher and the plan was to go for a quick snapper flick and then spend a few hours chasing marlin. Well the first part went to plan and we loaded up with slimies and hit the island. A couple of drifts and Mick comes up tight and lands a nice snapper in the 50โ€™s. Then it was my turn and I loaded up to a bit of a screamer and managed one in the high 70โ€™s. Then lost another not soon after. Changed locations and caught a couple of panniers released. Then it was time to start the next part of the plan. Headed wide about 7nm offshore and the water started to get colder. Somewhere in the 19deg mark. Not good and did put any lures out as we were looking for warmer water. Couldnโ€™t find any, so we headed back to island and did a few really slow drifts for no result. Thought weโ€™d take a different tact and drop a paternoster rig and try find some trag but we kept coming up with barracuda. Left soon after the last cuda and was back at the ramp by midday. Ran into a few people at the ramp and they said they found good water and marlin to the south! Damn!!! Still a nice day on the water and Mick and I took home a feed. Sorry no pics just yet as my phone had a meltdown. cheers scratchie!!!
