  1. Wonderful... thank you and will do Cheers
  2. Howdy folks.. Just wondering what the protocol is for testing a newly installed VHF radio ? I've heard traffic on CH 16 whilst just listening in, but would obviously like to know my TX is working. Is there a protocol to do so ? Needless to say, no I haven't been in the vicinity of another mates boat at the time to simply call out to them over the radio. Cheers ...

    Port Hacking

    I've pulled about a dozen Jew from the Hacking, all between 50-75cm. Still waiting on a larger model to appear..
  4. Yep, Gummy are great table fare BUT u need to bleed and gut them straight up... otherwise they are prone to an ammonia taste. When u bleed them u have to cut behind the head all the way through the spine and then nick the fillet just up from the base of the tail to allow the blood to flow. U can also go up through the gut cavity "mid flank" and severe the blood line there as well.. It makes a massive difference to the table quality....
  5. Trevally make great Sashimi .. Bit like Kingfish

    Rock COD is poor man's lobster.. Very nice white firm flesh.. Well worth the effort of filleting and skinning. I get them fairly regularly outside of the Hacking, never done so inside... It may have been a little lost Yowie
  7. Great.. Thanx guys, just wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing..
  8. Hey folks, Just wanting to clarify something regarding the 1 x 70CM Jew bag limit. If I'm fishing with my 15yr old son (who doesn't require a licence because he is under 18) does that mean we can have 1 or 2 Mulloway on board ? Meaning, although unlicenced is he still able to take his bag limit of 1 in addition to mine ? Thanx in advance..
  9. Wow.. great map.. Does it also show the area off Port Hacking ?
  10. Nothing worse than being sea sick.. I suffer terribly from it. There's 2 stages to it. Stage 1- U think you're gonna die Stage 2- U hope u die soon ! If I know its going to be particularly bouncey i'll take a tab the night before as well as the usual dose in the morning Pb

    Cooks metre jew

    Can anyone explain to me why the Cooks has this quality of fish in it ? I mean the system is only 2 rungs away from a being declared a sewer.. It would have to be the most polluted waterway on the entire east coast of this wonderful land.. I'm genuinely interested in why fish would frequent/reside there ? Any theories ?
  12. Yes.. Plenty of Blue Spot Flathead in closer ATM... 30-40m mark between Marley and Botany
  13. I agree... They ain't too bad if done properly. Yes they are not as "forgiving" as other table fish on terms of handling, but if kept pristine as described above they will serve up better then ok
  14. If my Marine Mechanic tells me not to use it, and I trust him implicitly, the n that's good enough for me
