  1. Never tried fishing for Hairtail. Really much give it a try some time.
  2. We are so lucky to be living in a City where you can catch quality fish in sight of the middle of town.
  3. Went out for Kings a couple of weeks ago on a mates boat. Caught a heap of Yakkas, drifted around a few spots and did not turn a reel. You did well :-)
  4. With nice squid like that I feel conflicted.... Use as bait of eat fresh calamari..... Bait usually wins 😊
  5. So you probably have an advantage over most of us, you have the Big Man on your side. πŸ˜‰
  6. One of the best eating fish around. Well done.
  7. That is the biggest problem with fishing outside, I have had many a planed day out cancelled at the last minute due to wind or rain. I guess it makes the good days even more special πŸ™‚
  8. Loved to video, also watched the one where you hooked a nice Kingie. Good work πŸ™‚
  9. Good report an some nice pictures. Was that Flathead caught in the run in towards the Roseville boat ramp? Where they are usually skiing.
  10. Stopped in there a few time when I used to ride up the coast. πŸ™‚
  11. I marked quite a few on the sounder, but like you it seemed like nothing I did could get them on the chew.... and believe me when I say I tried. No lure had more than 30 minutes out unless it had a hit, then it got some extra time, different depths, different distances behind the boat, different hook set ups., varied speed...It was a tough slog πŸ™‚ I was contemplating a June trip but it is getting very cold so if I do come down it will be with the family and a car full of ski gear for a few days on the slopes. Hope you get a few next time down. πŸ™‚
  12. Flathead are hard to beat when it comes to the plate. Good work.
  13. I have seen rigs with a fly off the back of a Tassie, however not tried it myself. Some people use flashers in front of their lures. I tried using an old silver lure at the end of my main line with the Tassie on a trace further back. Did not get a hit.
