    Crookhaven Heads

    Fished Friday down south around outer burkets for 4 good flathead and 2 reds. Snuck out for a late drift around the banks and mud. Very quiet around those areas. Come back in to a couple of little reef areas off the lighthouse until after dark again very quiet. Saturday tried to get livies out the front for nothing so flew down the kinghorne. Only managed one lone slimey. Headed out to the banks and sounded around for a couple of hours looking for kings. Marked a fair bit of bait but couldnt get it to jig. No luck on the kings jigging and lost one shark on a floating bait while we were bashing the bottom. Made our way down around the drum for a drift and ended up with 14 good flathead, two trevs, one very small king that was released and two snapper. Sunday proved to be an even better day. Late start in the inclement weather didnt stop us putting 15 odd good flathead up to 58cm in the box with 2 more reds and a nice little mako around 20kg. We were back on the trailer by 1230. The fish are somewhat shut down with quite finicky bites at the moment. The key was to persevere and vary your depths. The majority of our success was in 50m

    Heading down there this weekend. At this stage we'll chase kings on the jigs and livies. Hopefully have a report Monday

    Slow jigging reel?

    If you wanted something a little better than the chinese knock offs my research tells me the Penn Fathom is a decent reel and you can pick them up for around $230

    Slow jigging reel?

    I've been looking into this myself. There seems to be an endless amount of options. From what i can tell you want a small overhead with an oversize handle and a gear ratio of somewhere between 5.5 & 7.5. You also want something capable of around 10-12kg of drag. I'm thinking of buying one of the cheaper chinese copies to see if the style of fishing suits me before i get too excited

    Wide of Jervis Bay this weekend.

    Bit of a nothing time at the moment down that way. Marlin all but over and tuna not yet there in big numbers. Have a look at rip charts and pick a patch of water that looks likely rather than just troll the shelf. FAD will have probably been removed in preparation for the whale migration

    Almost Stripey Sunday 7.4.19

    On lures i dont run anything under 250 where marlin are the main target. Sometimes with smaller 4-6" targeted at tuna i will drop down to 150. When trolling lures there is no need to go any lighter. Skip baits i mainly run 130-150. Live baits i start at 150 and work my way down from there. IMO anything lighter than 100 and youre playing with fire when it comes to marlin

    Blues on the chew

    Plenty of blues and some cracking yellowfin caught in the Kiama comp on the weekend past. Most fish coming from North of Kiama. Give it a few days and hopefully the water pushes south to JB for easter

    If its any help when we were fishing the Shoalhaven comp we marked huge amounts of kings on the southern side of the banks but didnt bother with them

    Jervis Bay FAD

    Plenty of dollies about mate even micro fish on the banks weekend before last. You'll have to be up bloody early to be the first boat to the Fad though. Its been packed the last couple of times ive headed out that way and ive ended up just driving straight past it and heading wider. There have been plenty of bi catch dollies around for those trolling wide chasing beak fish

    Gomoku rods

    Have you guys considered a light wind on leader as opposed to one tied on?
  12. Pro tip is to bottle the liquid in old coke bottle or similar and freeze it. If you just leave it hanging over the side you'll form a nice scenty slick for the bitey fish
  13. I use basically the same process as frank and its served me well. I like the idea of vacuum sealing pilchard etc as they should be ok to be frozen and thawed multiple times without going to sh!t

    Jervis bay marks

    As others have said it is very sanding but fishing the edges of the ribbon weed has produced numbers of reds for me over the years. Its also quite sharky at this time of the year if that interests you

    Banks always holds kings mate, getting them to bite on occasion can be a battle. But this time of year there will be blacks there
