    Cheers Woodsy, missed seeing you the last few times, hopefully we can catch up for a fish soon.

    That’s a cracker red, that is the fish I am chasing. Yep, it’s like when you fish float baits, the better fish definitely come well up off the bottom IMO

    Port Stephens reds.

    Mate Scratchie and I know blokes that fish as light as 1/8th, yesterday we could of easily with the lack of current. There is a bit of science behind it you want your lure drifting down through the water column as slowly and naturally as the conditions will allow, the majority of the good reds will actually hit in the top 1/3 of the water column I have found.

    No Swell, no current, no wind, a million other boats = the perfect conditions not to go snapper fishing. Unfortunately I am unable to fish with everyone in a few weeks time so hit Scratchie up to see if he was interested in a little pre fish on Monday of the Long Wkend. Brought another mate along and after a quick attempt at getting some bait we made the decision after watching at least six other boats heading north we decided to hit our first drift as the sun was rising. My other mate had never caught a snapper on a plastic so given the conditions there was some slight concern. I think second cast with a seven inch jerk Shad in pilchard I pulled a legal pannie. Shortly after scratchie calls “good fish” before his braid pinged half way up the line. I had two more casts before I came up tight to a good red in some tight structure. I was confident I had turned the fish head and had it heading towards deeper water when that sinking feeling of being smoked in the structure. Having caught a few decent reds we all knew this one was a solid fish. Quickly Re rigged and the very next cast the 7 inch pilchard gets whacked and heads straight towards the deeper water. This fish is fighting dirty, down deep with some serious pulling power. Ended up having to chase it into the deeper water to try gain some line back, knowing I was away from structure It had all the hallmarks of a stonker red. After a few more blistering runs down deep the fish cane charging high in the water column with us all calling it for anythin from Cobia to a king. After a solid 15 minutes on 15lb line I manage to get the fish to the boat and is a Longtail of approximately 10-12 kg, we managed to get her to the boat, where after a quick (failed) gaff shot by Jeff 😂 the 16lb leader popped at the knot. We continued fishing and my mate put on the old faithful Nuke Chicken In 5 inch. Not long after he got his first ever legal red on a plastic, followed by an upgrade PB. With a wuick spot change I managed to put he fish of the day in the boat before my mate calls good fish. He duely sets the hook which is short lived before he is giving his first dusting by a Port Stephens Red. We tried a couple more spots with us all adding some reds with us endin up with 8 keepers and as many throw backs. Considering the conditions the fishing was extremely tough, if we had of converted all the fish we hooked it would hve been a cracking day on the water, but trust me the knowledge Jeff has of the area as I have said time and time again is invaluable. I’ve fished with him five times now and every time we hve hooked some crackers, the blokes middle name is Pagrus. For the technical side of things all fish came on 5 and 7 inch plastics on 1/4th TT jig heads, fish depths between 6-22 meters of water, and the old saying of find the bait find the fish is very true when snapper fishing. I don’t think one spot held more fish then any others but Jeff’s philosophy of just keep casting is so very true.

    Crabs for mother’s day

    We found a mixed grill, two legal snapper, Silver Trevally, small Flathead and a thumping whiting all on smaller vibes.

    Port Stephens winter reds- whose interested?

    Mate you know how much I love my snapper fishing but sadly I fly to Europe that day. Two weeks of drinking piss and sailing Croatia in their summer. Spewing 👎

    Marlin Gear?

    More then capable of handing inshore blacks, which will be the main species you will encounter. I think until you actually see a marlin a 50-60 kg fish is still a big fish. I personally prefer mono on my overheads, depending on where/ method you are fishing

    Brisbane Waters Flathead

    Had to work for them today but the fish are there, small vibes accounted for most of the fish with a bigger plastic getting the better fish

    Brisbane Waters Flathead

    With this time of year the fishing everywhere firing its hard to make time with work and wife commitments to get enough time to fish. With a horrible strong wind warning forecast I asked my mate from work if he was interested in a flick down the local. Launched the boat at Gosford at first look and had a look around the deeper parts of Brisbane Waters for an early jew around the tide change for nil luck. Quick move to the flats and we managed to find a variety of fish including Flathead, Bream, whiting and a few legal estuary snapper, all taken on soft vibes. With a feed in the livewell we cracked a coldie and hit another spot I’ve pulled some bigger lizards. Didn’t take my mate long with a bigger 5 inch plastic and he’s calling it for a better fish. Few nice runs and he had his pb of 80cms in the boat. The wind getting up we called it a day to have a couple more coldies at the sailing club. Not a bad few hours throwing lures with three lizards over that 65cm mark boated.

    Sydney North FAD missing

    A number of reasons, people tying off at them is certainly a possibility
