    That’s the way, you can never have enough brownie points, I’m driving kids around for star struck for the next few days so hopefully I’ll accumulate a few myself

    Port Stephens wind farm

    Hi all went for a quick one this morning as I new the wind was coming up. And what do you know as soon as I get to my spot up it comes. Struggled but got a feed in the end. Heaps of small snapper out there just on size, kept a couple as their swim bladders came out. 4 x snapper 1 x pearly 1x morwong 1 x flathead 1 x bonnie Anyway I’m thinking of farming the wind instead of fishing as every time I go out it blows its guts out even when only light winds are forecast. Still better then work

    Nice feed fellas, hope you left me a couple up there

    Squid Info

    Maybe have them in a keeper net off the side of the jetty or boat where your fishing. Might work( not sure).

    Thanks for the heads up mate. i wouldn’t like hitting one, it might make the crack I’ve got in my hull a bit bigger

    Nice feed mate, I've got to get one if those vac seal machines. How long does the fish last in the freezer doing it that way?

    Trailer repairs

    The problem welding galvanised steel is you need to grind it off to weld and the heat produced also effects the area. If you prep the area, paint properly and coat the crap out of it with some form of corrosion prevention it should last for a while. try not to fully submerge the trailer helps as well

    I’ve got the same problem on the the cross members, Rusting out bad where the bend is. Got quoted $600 for welding in 2 galvanised ones. A lot cheaper obviously if I do it myself which I’m considering .

    Hmm... Dinner, or Bait?

    Good choice Baz. Hard not to eat some nice fresh squid. If you ever have too much you can send them my way, ha ha

    Yeah mate 2/1 roster Heading back home on Thursday and planning on heading out on Monday. Not sure about heading to Broughton or heading out a bit wider to get a few trag and pearlies. If it’s not blowing I might try a bit of slow jigging on some reefs. Marked some ok spots last time out so wouldn’t mind going back

    Nice one Baz, what colour plastic are you using, doesn’t look like coconut ice, might be the secret weapon?
