  1. It was actually a few weeks ago. Some of you may remember the post. I've been fishing with my father since i can remember started out with beach fishing and eventually we got a boat about 10yrs ago And all of a sudden it was me waking dad up in the early mornings!!! We have pretty much fished Botany Bay ever since!! Alot of the time just targetting the bread and butter species for a nice feed Flatties, Crabs and Calamari. We would target kings when its the right time of year and we wouldnt get much lukc the odd king here and there and it was never my father that would catch the kingf
  2. yeah they were super fussy on the day i was fishing near bottom where the fish on the sounder were holding and wasnt getting anything. Wound up above mid water column and the moment i did that you could see on the sounder the kingies coming up and attacking the squid!! Then a few moments later was the hookup
  3. Thanks for the support man πŸ™‚ Thats a tough one mate. It is a mixture of patience and confidence if your confident your in the right spot at the right time of day with the right bait and your confident the fish will come around then stay. Usually though as a rule of thumb 45 minutes - 1hr just to give the spot a chance.If we are anchored at a spot that we know produces and for whatever reason theres nothing happening and the sounder isnt lighting up and the burley isnt bringing them in then definitely 45 -60 minutes till we move
  4. Ahh mate seriously theres been days where we have gone and caught 5-6 live squid and went to target kings all day only to leave and come home with 5-6 squid for a feed🀣 And other times the kings wont touch whole live squid but will take squid strips! And other days they will hit the lures! they are so picky!!!
  5. heres some extra pics that didnt make it into the video
  6. Hey guys we headed out to make the most of the great weather on Saturday and Sunday. On saturday our plan was to fish the high tide for an hour or so then head over to towra to see if there were any crabs about. Unfortunately there were no crabs but the kings were out to play only taking live squid. Ended the day with 1 hookup and one bust off catching 1 fat king at 78cm. Sunday was pretty much the same, except we wanted to solely target kings for the high tide. We had difficulties catching the live squid only managing two, and we had 1 hookup and 1 bust off again!! We left with another
  7. Hey guys, we headed out on back to back trips to stock up on some Flathead, our last 3 trips we have a managed a solid feed of flatties. First trip was 3 Flathead all over 45 and one fish going 53. Our second and third trip is what you see here in this video. First day we managed a 65 and 55cm Flathead. To follow it up on the third day with a nice mixed bag of fish with the standout being that stonker whiting!!! Flathead, Slimy Mackerel, Calamari, Tailor and Kingfish are all starting to fire within the bay. There have even been reports of pan size Snapper being caught.
  8. Hi guys planning on heading out on Sunday since its such a great day. We usually only fish inside the bay and around the heads but we are going to go out to drift for flatties around Maroubra and coogee etc etc. We thought if there were any reefs in the area or if anyone knows of rough locations around that area we could have a look around for to try our luck on snapper and mowies etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance 😊 Also any help on finding flatties around there would help also πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  9. We headed out to Botany on Good Friday the 19th for one last crack at the crabs, we managed 4 good sized blue swimmers and we also had a productive day of Flathead fishing. We caught 5 flatties in total all in the low 40's. We then headed out on Easter Monday solely targeting Flathead it was a much more productive day we caught 5 flathead in total and the biggest coming in at a very fat at 65cm caught on 6Lb line it was a great fight! We also caught a rat king at 63cm again on 6Lb which was an even better fight. All in all we had a great day out Caught a nice feed of Flathead and h
  10. Great fish and great photo well done πŸ‘
  11. 100% through the cartilage in the front of the nose that way the fish will stay alive for hours, Also could put a second (snelled) hook in the upper or lower back of the fish making sure to not to go too deep and to avoid the lateral line
  12. Hey all went out last Thursday and posted "Botany Bay mixed bag and lost the big one" So we headed out today again in search of some larger kings inside the bay but also with the idea in mind of still catching a feed of fish. So we headed to our usual squid grounds where we caught 5 nice sized squid I was really tempted to keep some for a feed but decided to send them out live. We then bounced around the bay trying to find the baitschools and in-turn the Kingfish we tried the drums and molineaux but it being a weekend there were 22 boats, 4 kayaks and a team of divers there with a few s
  13. Oh okay i have heard of people using trebles on their rigs, do you find that it does increase hookup rate?
