    Snapper Off sydney

    The theory is the fish swim up the trail even at anchor the trail can cover a long area. I rarely anchor because the sarca is too epensive to lose and fishing solo out of a cuddy cabin makes it a little harder to do. We may have been successful with out the burly but we were successful with it.

    Snapper Off sydney

    Hello Raiders, Had another go at the snapper today with better results, had Paul from The Sneaky Fisho with and he had some good intel. After getting some liveies we headed to long reef 30M depth sounded a ball of something and started our drift. We tried various lures baits and rigs then paul comes up tight using tweed packet cuttlefish on a small running sinker to the hook, bail arm open down the burly trail. Naturally I changed to the same setup and lost a solid fish after a brief fight . Did manage to get a panie on plastics using the method scratchy explained at the last meet good day all round. FYI had a report of large salmon schools near the harbour bridge today.

    Collecting oysters as bait - legality & safety

    If you get oyster shell in a cut its hard to remove and can infect had plenty as a kid with no serious injury. Was it safer 50 odd years ago who knows.

    Launch retrieve in the dark

    Thinking of getting serious about snapper but most pundits say an hour before or after Dawn/sunset. I dont have flood lights on the boat and was thinking of getting magnetic torches to stick on the pylon where I launch I always go solo and like to get close to the pontoon any advice?

    Botany Bay Calamari Morning

    Nice catch and good eating. I dont mind a bit of snap from fresh calamari there not chewy. As to rules they are for the lowest common denominator guess thats city life.
