    Broken Bay - Terrigal Fad 8/3/19

    Did you try the BB Fad as well or just Terrigal? A bloke a few weeks ago thought it was missing

    Blue swimmer crabs

    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.

    Keep the grapevine going

    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.

    Drummer off the rocks

    if you enjoy chinese style meals. they are great. I used to throw all the wrasse species away years ago until I noticed these were top dollar fish in their restaurants. Bloke that I knew that had a top chinese restaurant in Parra taught me how to get the best out of them. You need a wok and gas , smoking oil (canola / peanut) for flsh to fry ,then add whatever sauce you like at the end( sweet sour,basil etc). Obviously gut .scale whole fish. salt for 30 mins on skin . slice length of fish 20 ml slices to bone(horizontally) and deep fry. Fantastic.

    Parramatta River Carp and Bass

    18 months ago I spoke to a guy fishing between Lennox bridge and old king school weir, who showed me 2 photos of murray cod he had caught there.To much development around that pond now, but cant see any reason why they wouldn't be futher up in the park As to carp.My father worked in maintenance dept in the psych hospital, behind the leagues club end of the park, in the 80's. There was a toxic spill in the river that killed the fish and the bodies floated to the banks. I gave him a hand loading them on to our 6 foot box trailer for burial and there were carp the length of the trailer.

    One drift - triple bag out

    Were the flathead full of row? Were they in around the mid 40's depth? Have found in the past similar results based on these two pointers
