  1. You use a burley trail with a drift rather than anchor in 30m? I would have thought this would disperse the fish over a wider area rather than congregate?
  2. Have seen them before in the area. They particularly like ambushing in the shallow flats next to the wharf rd boat ramp. Some go inside the flats and drive the fish to the narrow throat on the main river that drops off into the deeper water, or vice versa. Presume its the poddy mullet sunning themselves in the shallow flats water that they chase.
  3. For a statistic to be listed as a shark attack there has to be a witness that actually sees the shark and the attack. If your swimming at a beach hear a loud splash, turn around and notice that the person 10 meteres away from you has disappeared, this is listed as drowning(accidental drowning 1920 people is it?). Most of the guys i know that are long term comp spearos so competent in the water and around sea life ,won't go to certain spots any more due to increased numbers and aggression of great whites . This wasn't the case 20 years ago.
  4. Hey Basil. What bait were you successful with? We were there as well and didn't go good till 11am when we went away from the main group of boats. The crew then used that mornings caught slimies rather than the thawed ones and that worked. Not sure whether bait or change of location was the key.
  5. Probably the red spot. Been catching them a lot lately and on last trip out just after dawn a trawler dropped his bycatch and there were thousands of them blanketing inside nth head. Seagulls had a field day so must be plagues of them at the moment.
  6. yep wcurrall is right. I have caught them a few times out there but knew them as armourheads. Found that name when searching for them originally and was the name the russkies called them that and an important commercial catch for them. True name is the boarfish
  7. What time were you on your mark for the dollies both days?
  8. Yeah the rockfishing blitz is annoying. How come according to the Bondi Rescue show, they claim they save at least 10 people a day from drowning (ie 3650 per year) yet not significantly statistical enough to force all beach goers to wear lifejackets? Just a thought
  9. What about with a blind fold on as well? "Arrrrr you are not ready to you take the pebble from my hand"
  10. Did you try the BB Fad as well or just Terrigal? A bloke a few weeks ago thought it was missing
  11. Love the irony whilst wearing a samaki shirt quote "Wearing their shit crappy merchandise and putting shimano stickers all over the boat"
  12. Can you advise what system you fish for them to explain your observation of decline? What technique were you using to catch your crabs (scooping spotlighting/hoop nets or others/handlines etc? How many did you use to catch per style of fishing compared to now over what period of decline? What type of bait has that been consistent? I've actually found an increase in returns.
  13. Went out wide of the bait station today, looking for the traps normally laid in the 140 m mark with the aim of catching dollies. Traps not there so no results. For those that chase Marlin still, significant temp break from 22.5 to 24 in around 120 m. Several seen sunbaking. Out wide 26ish but no birds and no marlin seen.
