    Sounds like something i would do...floating around on the harbour...a glass of wine in one hand and a rod in the other while laying on an airbed on the deck of my boat....if only i have something bigger than a tinny lol.

    Sydney Sunday

    Hey Finin, if only i read ur report earlier. It was like a Maccas drive thru this morning at Drummoyne ramp. Finally managed to get to the harbour by 6am. I guess i wasnt invited to the wedding in the harbour today. The wedding was surrounded by boats. So i retreated back to the yellow marker just out of Nelson park. All afternoon, i got 1 bream 33cm, a sweep, 2 rats barely hitting 60cm and one bust off all on banana prawns. A mowie would be nice but there is always next time. Cheers E

    Avoca....fish spring break is over!,

    Greg, thanks for the positive words mate. Next time I'll PM u for updates for i head up there lol
  9. As promised from my last post, i managed to force myself out of bed after only 3hrs sleep. Sleepy and contemplating to go or not, i managed to leave the hse at 6am and drove up to avoca. Parking lot looks ok with surfer already out in the water but no sign of fishos with gears around. Happy thinking ive got the whole platform to myself, i walked around to the plateau...OMG...is this Saturday or Monday. It was packed. Stumbling along and dodging rock pools, i made it to my usual spinning spot by 8.30. Boy, the Poseidon weren't too happy today and Zeus was crying for most of the morning. I took my time setting up as no one was pulling in any feed. By 10am, a welcome screem was heard from the distance. Someone had a fish on! "A Rat" yelled his friend. Moments past, the sounds of slapping rocks. I looked over and the first bonnie of the morning was hauled in. I was spinning so didnt have pillies but the guys using pillies was bringing in bonnies far in between. I managed 2 rats to 60cm and a pulled hooked bonnie right at my feet ?. All in all, this trip was a better trip than most. In additional to getting little burnt, i had multiple water fights with the Kraken. Needless to say, i lost! I was drenched head to toe. Lost yet another 2 rapalas and 2 SP to the hungry sea...and still came home with no food on the table. What can i say. This is fishing for ya. E.

    Avoca in recession

    Been driving 1.5 - 2hrs up to avoca recently and all I've been getting is sunburnt! What's happened to rocks up here? Are the bonnies and kings taking an extra long holiday out at sea? Has any raiders been up there and getting a feed? Anymore of these fuel wasting trips up there, I'll start eating my baits for dinner.

    Sydney Harbour Friday

    Great report mate. Yeah the wind was pretty nasty today. If i manage to get my wheel bearings in and fitted on time, I'll be on the waters by the next hi tide for tomorrow evening. Hopefully a few breams in Middle harbour and a nice bag of squids will be nice. We can only wish at the moment. Tight lines raiders.
