    Squid again

    Hi rick. i heard your style of fishing for squid were much easier then bouncing it back is that true? and to me, it looks easier lol. 1m down from the float. but how deep are the water you fishing? and do you just slowly retrieve it back when the float sinks? or you just leave it there and wait for the float to sink then retrieve? noob squider, would appreciate all advice. thanks sam

    Middle harbour King mushy

    can i ask why you guys use such heavy line..? no offence, my mate, always taught me to go line when possible, we can manage 70-80cm king on a 15-20lb leader, with a longer fight thats all. so correct me if im wrong,,, i have nother over 20lb in my setup lol

    Took the family on a rod trip, 1st stop Batemans Bay. Didn’t do much there, hang out near the oyster farm for lunch and there were a school of decent bream camping. Tossed out our ? heads and they smashed. Didn’t fish, so we wanted to prawn so went and check Durras Lake! Got there at 8.30 pm not a very comfy drive with the family lol, it was all dark the road were very tight.. the mrs kinda go scare.. got there. So I got out of the car and check out the area. It was decent and shallow water, but it wasn’t fully dark, tend got a call from the mrs! Saying get ur arse back! I left the window open while she and the boy waiting inside! Rather then seeing prawns! We saw countless mosquitos!! Inside the car!!! So I know this is a No No! Drove back and chill at our cabin. 2nd stop Metung! Beautiful waterfront at the mooring. The place have also changed a lot compared to 2 years ago! The mussel were gone... 2 years ago they were everywhere, you can easily get a feed. But this year... I can’t even spot them.... the prawns were also really slow!! The whole lake were flooded with weed. Not good for prawning. So we skip it again. Went out on a boat for some crabbing. Which were productive. Every 5 minutes we were hauling in sand ?. It was fun. did manage a decent size flatty when I woke up early. Just 1 hr of fishing all up.
