    A few snapper, first post in ages

    I'm actually freezing it and using it as snapper bait for the next probably 10 times going offshore because it is that big
  2. Apologies as I have been terribly lazy of late with no posts.. headed out on good friday with dad early off botany, with practically no wind and a very slight 1m swell going SSE. Fished in around 50m of water around reefs targeting snapper with a bit of luck; managed 4 pannies 32-38cm, with 4 morwong all of relatively decent size 50-55cm, an absolutely huge cuttlefish which weighed in at around 2.1kg, and what I think to be the best eating fish on the east coast a nice 32cm pearly. Plenty of throwback snapper in amongst that. We also saw a small Mahi Mahi come to the surface and circle the boat.. I've never seen one in so close within 2 miles of the coastline, which was a pleasant surprise, probably due to the water being 22.9 degrees so close in. Back home by 11, cheers.

    Quick plastics flick

    Mate they are ridiculous, literally tear them to shreds, I use Berkeley or Samaki and yeah I agree, they're a bit better honestly I'll use anything that replicates the natural bait best

    Quick plastics flick

    Went out for a quick hour session with a mate in the bay this morning, very quiet as the water cools down. Managed a 40cm flattie & 31cm flounder amongst heaps of chopper tailor and many torn apart plastics.

    Decent red & mixed bag

    Went out wide this morning before uni with dad, conditions extremely sloppy - wind, rain, strong SW current and uncomrtable swell Managd a nice mixed bag of a 2 reds, one 54cm one, a pigfish, 2 movies, 2 six spine jackets and 3 flatties. A fair few undersized throwbacks but all in all not a bad result considering the conditions

    Plastics 2.0

    Haha the result is reasonable but we honestly lost the 4 fish with the biggest bends in the rod try the paddle tails next time your out around or off any weed bed they seem to go nuts for them
