  1. I'm with Paddy. If I don't find the bait there within 15 mins keep moving. Don't waste hours chasing ghosts. There's no shortage of places in Syd harbour with yakkas
  2. Haha that was a good call. That's exactly the plan...finish everything by December 1st and leave marlin season free
  3. You truely are the snapper whisperer Scracthie ! Hope your having fun - im grounded with house renovations
  4. Thanks fellas. Much appreciated
  5. Gdai Raiders Have been very busy lately, renovating the house, wife is pregnant with #3 and work is going gangbusters. Have done one trip in 8 weeks 😭😭. Needless to say I am dying to get out. A couple of friends want to head up to SWR over the Australia day long weekend. Now I'm not looking for fishing tips. Can anyone give me some tips on the area? Is it safe to leave the boat street parked or should I get a secure storage for a couple of days? A couple of the mates also enjoy a good bush bash so can anyone recommend some spots where 4wding is permitted. Many thanks.
  6. Some great eating fish there Bruce. Well done. How were you targetting the kings in the hacking?
  7. Botany Bay can be hard fishing mate. When the fish are off they are well and truly OFF. Good on you for getting out anyway.
  8. Great report Jim. Must have been very refreshing for the body soul and mind to get back on the water !! I usually bottom bash with four rods out. Two a bit further out and two closer to the boat. This stops most tangles. I prefer a minimalist approach to flathead fishing and will leave the rod in the holder until the fish is ON. I rarely strike at a fish.
  9. Awesome read Zoran. You have yourself a fine woman there. I would be lucky to get my missus on the boat let alone 40km out. Very lucky man indeed but I am sure you already know that !! And to top it all off some quality eating fish. Tight lines !!
  10. Surprised no one has gone there yet. But I'm sure there are some shady places in the city where you can get what your after 😅😅
  11. all the typical trails of a day out on the water ! Excitement, frustration, failure, success and of course, some bad unexpected weather. Overall you persisted and did well. great report & well done on the feed
  12. Well that's all well and good if you have the choice mate but as someone who has no work flexibility weekend fishing is the only window of opportunity I have. I am sure most fishos are faced with the same unfortunate circumstances. That being said, if you haven't been out since April it doesn't look like your making the most of your weekday fishing availability so go figure !??
  13. Don't rub it in or anything mate hahaha lucky you!
  14. Cracking result guys. those are some absolute thumping snapper !!! Is spring supposed to be snapper season or winter up there at PS?
  15. Foreshore ramp is the best constructed ramp in Sydney by far. It is very likely that if cars have gone swimming at that ramp it is because the skipper has made an unfortunate blunder. All ramps can be slippery at low tide as the water line falls and exposes the algae covered part of the ramp. In a 4 meter tinny you should be OK as long as you take care not to reverse too far down into the water, reverse down slowly and accelerate out of the ramp slowly. If you hammer that accelerator your wheel will spin and you will slide backwards, its momentum that does the damage after that. In terms of how busy the ramp is, that really depends on what time you plan on getting there. The ramp is busiest between 5:00am and 6:30am most weekends, especially during summer. In fact i have witnessed multiple weekends where the 100 or so parking spaces are full by 7am. Before 5:00am you will find yourself launching quickly, after 6:30am there is still normally a que albeit not as long as the peak hour. Thursday morning you will be fine, most fishos are at work, you lucky bastard !!!!!!
