  1. As mentioned above the 25000 is a big bulky reel, hope you go to the gym casting lures all day you are going to feel it in your back and arms. What is your budget for a rod mate?
  2. Good feed there mate, what depth were you fishing?
  3. Nice work can’t beat fresh caught prawns 👌, plenty of other things you can use as bait
  4. Hey mate I wouldn’t use a loop knot on a jig head, just tie a uni/blood knot to connect to the jig head. I used to always use a double uni for my braid to leader knot but since costing me a cracking snapper I know tie the improved Albright that @Scratchie told me to tie and it’s a much stronger knot IMO
  5. Forgot to add when the boat went in for service I had taken everything out including landing net which I’d left at home, tense moments trying to lip grip her when she was only barely hooked in the lip
  6. G’day all, after blowing a bearing heading up to chase reds with @Scratchie @Woodsy1 and not being able to fish I finally got the boat back Monday after getting the trailer redone. Had a short shift Tuesday at work so thought I would go and chase some lizards in the local. Fishing was tough but managed approximately 8 flattys with this croc measuring in at 85cms, 1cm shy of my pb. Found we had to move to a few different spots due to wind, which we used to our advantage drifting against the tide. Big girl was released after a quick photo, caught on a 3/8tt jighead and 5 inch Berkeley paddle tail in bloodworm colour.
  7. G’day Rod where abouts you fishing? The fish are there, ive found once you find the flattys they are in good numbers you just may need to try a few different spots, we managed over 40 fish a week ago when the water was 23, fished this week and the water had dropped to 19.5 and only managed a handful. Pm me if you like more then happy to help with a few spots!!!
  8. Cracking day out for someone, least the coffee was semi decent at Beresfield BP, might have to put up a report about that 😆😆
  9. Don’t listen to Scratchie, he will only put you onto endless amounts of cracking snapper, can’t wait to see his face when I pull whiskers from his spot x
  10. Good day as usual lads, spewing Mick didn’t boat that fish, only a matter of time before he lands a proper one
  11. Cheers all, definitely not complaining with a PB, might take me a few more trips to beat it now, the last three full moon phases I have fished with Jeff we have found very similar circumstances in saying that the fish if you work hard enough are there, that came mid morning bang on a tide change, coincidence I don’t think so!!!
  12. Hey mate I don’t have any marks sorry just go off depths on Navionics
  13. Good intell the kings are holding on Texas in good numbers, majority on the smaller size around that 75cm mark with some bigger hoodlums including some undtoppables in the mix. Have a look on your Navionics there is a few good pinnacles south of Texas, that is definitely worth a look, when it gets crowded you need to find other spots
  14. With a little break in the weather I scored an invite with Backcruncher and scratchie to tag along and chuck some lures around Port Stephens/ Broughton Island. From previous experiences we all knew it was going to be tough fishing with the full moon the previous evening. The first three drifts at a spot scratchie had scored fish on Friday with multiple lure changes drew a blank, couple of hits that did not feel like our target species. We moved to a spot where Mick had scored a nice red previously and we found a couple of very small rat kings but again no reds. We moved to a spot where I would consider my favourite, threw on my confidence lure a seven inch motor oil jerk shad and first drift Jeff and I both missed fish that were definitely reds. We lined up the drift again and by this stage the wind/current had shifted and could not line the boat up to where the fish seemed to be holding. Things were looking grim when Jeff made the call to do a short drift inside where we had begun. Just as we were nearing the end of the drift I got my lure in the perfect zone and it was crunched mid water with the fish peeling drag, I played it out with the tell tale signs of a good red getting its nose down in the current and using those solid tail beats after a few nervous moments I had my Pb in the boat 78cm!!!!, we were all stoked. After this we could not get the drift right so moved to one more spot where Jeff got chewed off by a solid red that had swallowed his gulp live, spewing. I would say it’s the toughest day I have had out the island but the scenery and company was world class.
  15. Haha mate they certainly aren’t snapper but still good fun, next day I get off I am coming up.
