    Mate thats a top bag of fish there....looks like an awesome part of the world. You dont realise how tough fishing sydney is until you see the results elsewhere.......

    OZZIE Salmon

    Great work landing that sambo....im not a big fan of aussie salmon for eating but taste can be very subjective. For instance my favourite eating fish is flathead and id much prefer that over snapper or bream for instance.

    Bow rider pros,cons.

    The half cabin comes in very handy most of the time, though admittedly it does result in some lost space. Some half cabins are well designed and make efficient use of space whilst others waste alot of usable space unnecessarily. The main benefits i get out of my cabin would be extra storage, weather protection, rest space. I would say overall a centre cab is by far my fav design. But those have their cons too!

    Port hacking fishin

    Hi Josh Welcome to FR. Winter fishing can be hard going. Im sure some raiders will share some marks with you but seemingly your in the right areas but need to reconsider your method. Sounds like you have recently got into boat fishing which is awesome..thats a whole new type of fishing and a steep learning curve....i remember when i first started fishing from boats i went a good 2 months before i started to get any "real" results. Theres alot to consider when fishing on a boat. It would be helpful if you can shed some light on how you have been fishing... are you anchoring and berleying or drifting? How are you setting up your tackle? Etc

    56cm is a respectable size.....how does it stack up against the records?

    Starting the Boat Journey

    I think Formosa have a fully plate option in "offshore" series which is pretty good value for money. To help you get a gauge on sizes I have a 6.2m Yellowfin and the total weight on a breaked trailer is approx 1630kg Hull 990kg Motor + steering 230kg Trailer 160kg Fuel 100kg Gear say 150kg If your budget permits and subject to your confirmed towing capacity you may be able to get a boat in the 5m range if that suits you. The extra space will be useful especially if you want to fish headlands/coast with 3 ppl onboard.

    Browns Rock report - with a word of warning.

    Or better yet, after they get out all wet. Ask them to issue themselves a fine for "assisting you" without a life jacket 😅

    Im no acoustic engineer but i think physics might disagree !! That sound would have to be really loud to enter and then move through water. PS....like you...id find it really annoying too !!
