BREAM (4/19)



  1. Yeah man, sometimes its good to just go out and enjoy the day, no need to stress about anything Yeah thanks man, gotta make the most of it
  2. Hey All, Welcome to another video!!! Havent been able to get out since our last video, due to weather and other commitments. We have been neglecting the crabs quite a bit this season so we decided to give the kingfish a rest for abit and see if we cant get a nice feed of blue swimmers. Whilst waiting around for the crabs we had planned to target Flathead and Flounder with our usual method of drifting with white bait. The wind and tide was in our favour that day so it turned out to be fairly productive on the fishing front, although the crabs werent as productive as previous years maybe due to the increased number of boats targeting them As always would love any feedback on the video as im always looking to improve!
  3. Hey @Raymondhau thanks alot we were running 50 and 80lb leaders
  4. Hey mate, Definitely launch for foreshore, there are squid all over kurnell especially around the Captain Cooks landing and directly opposite around bare island. If it is your first time fishing the bay be cautious around bare island as it can get very dicey there
  5. @mrsswordfisherman yes thanks a bunch, will do! i still remember meeting you at one of the hairtail socials! hopefully there will be another one soon
  6. Yes mate great idea!! Absolutely love that i never even thought of it! 🤣 upgrading camera and grabbing a drone is definitely on our to do list!
  7. Jeez, havent the kings been firing lately in the bay, We went out on 2 separate trips on the first trip we caught a total of 7 kingfish keeping 5 with the largest going 83 Then on the second trip we caught a total of 6 kingfish keeping 3 with the largest going 85. We have been fortunate enough to avoid the plagues of rats with the majority of the fish being over 75cm. Live Squid ofcourse outperformed all other livebait by far, roughly 4 - 1 when compared to live yakkas. Both days we managed fairly high numbers of calamari first day catching 6 and the second day catching 9. Around 3 hours each day catching live squid to only have the kingfish smash them all within 30-40mins. As always would love any feedback on the video as im always looking to improve!
  8. Hey All, We headed offshore for another day of bottom bashing for Flathead. Simple Paternoster rig with Salted Slimey Mackerel done the trick and outfished all other baits on the day. We were very active in finding the Flathead constantly moving. If your not catching legal flatties within 5 minutes of dropping it's best to up and move until you do. After 3 hours of fishing, we decided to head back with 14 fish biggest going 50cm. Its good to be able to stock the freezer again and have flatties cant wait to get onto the crabs!!
  9. @cogo44 Mate sounds like an awesome day!! and a bloody big boat with 10 people on it!
  10. Started early morning collecting live slimy Mackerel for a chance at a good kingfish and to stock up on slimy fillets to salt. Then headed offshore to try and find the deep sea Flathead. We headed north out of Botany Bay towards Coogee and started searching for them in 30 meters of waters being plagued by Sargent bakers and red rock cods we bounced around eventually working our way out to 50 meters by then we were only just north of Cape Banks. Where we found the patch and boated 6 within 20 minutes by then the wind had picked up and we were forced back inside the bay. All in all, we ended the day with 7 flatties largest going 55 and the smallest around 40
