    Yea I did mate there is pushing it and then there is stupid! Kicked off the day at terrigal ramp with a slight breeze, boat went in good I got this solo launch down pat! Before I knew it had 20 or so yellow tail in the tank. Started to head out to Texas and it was smooth sailing till about 10 nm out. The westerly wind was hitting the southerly swell and it was just a washing machine. Wind picked up to at least 15 - 18 knots and before I knew it I was down to a crawl. I knew I should of turned around at the half way point but the promise of a king was to tempting, also chuck in a bit of stubborness. Finally got to texas and mate the swell frequency was about 5 seconds between peaks and it was about 1.5 meter swell out there and throw in that belting wind, the swell was so steep and throwing the boat all over the place. there’s keen and there is stupid and i was being stupid being out there. Did a sneaky lap of texas in case there was a mass ball of kings for the picking .... no joy and limped back into the ramp and out of the water. lesson learnt re westerly wind + southerly swell. Should have fished Pittwater, I hear there’s kings hanging around Scotland island.

    It did put on a nice feed with ginger and shallots + a bit of soy👌🏻. Will do Antony cheers! That’s no good Tyrone, I hear that kings r thicker down south at the moment widenof Sydney/ Pittwater. Thinking of giving Texas another run in the morning, spending some time out there doing some serious sounder work and hunting for new spots. Another raider had success around the 120m mark yesterday. Cheers

    Had the week off work and was keen to spend most of it on the water. Monday was solo launching from terrigal. It was a little ugly but got it done! Filled up the tank full of livies and headed straight out for Texas. once out there temp was 18.3 degrees clean water. The sounder wasn’t showing anything. Found some life right on the bottom but think it was perch or nanagyi. Had lives out (high and low) and was also jigging. Few hours later, nothing. Hadn’t marked any bait or kings since getting out there so went in close. Managed 3 snapper in 30m of water, largest 50cm. A sealed showed up which didn’t help the fishing. Getting the boat out of the water went a bit smoother. Thursday Solo again the launch went much smother, again filled up the tank full of livies. A bit out of with the lack of show out at Texas the other day decided to stay in close. Fished The bull, the Bommies and foggies and all I could manage was undersized reds and a shark which all got thrown back. Called it a day. Getting the boat out was very ugly it was very surgy at the ramp. Solo launch / retrieves are tough back at the ramp few boys had boxes full of kings they said they got out wide. /sigh anyways any time on the water is better than anytime at work. looking for a buddy to help out with advice re putting some kings in the boat, send us a message if you can lend some advice.

    Bag of fish central coast

    Long awaited day out this the old man, we started the day off at terrigal boat ramp water sitting at 23.4degrees. Hit the marker and picked up a tank of livies. Was using a chicken pellet/fish oil burley which made the task really quick. The plan was to hit the FAD but after seeing a tone of boats heading that way we decided to fish a closer reef. After steaming out we fished the top of the reef up current and sounded out where the bait was. Water was a little dirty, current was light and water 23.3 degrees. As soon as we got there a pesky seal started to terrorise us for the next half hour! Burleyed up with the chicken pellet and fish oil mix and it paid off brought in the teraglin and snapper. Trags were smashing the yellowtail and snapper hitting half pillies. Ended up with 6 trag, 3 snapper, 3 travalley. Biggest trag 83cm, snapper 42cm Staying in close paid off, not sure how the fad went. Best part of the day was hanging out with the old man and putting a few in the boat!

    Terrigal- day on the water

    Hit the water by 530 at terrigal haven, the water was 24.2 degrees and extremely dirty, there was a brown algae or what ever it was on the surface and water was very frothy. Anchored up near the red marker and and had a tank full of livies in no time. Speared out to terrigal fad and the trip was very comfy seas less than a metre. First boat on scene 24.4 degrees clear water at least 20m vis and small current. Dropped a livey down, Bang bang, two dollies in the boat on the first drift pass. Though you beauty we are on here. Next pass got harrassed by hodlums / rats. Kings were around the 55cm mark and eating everything that was thrown at them. Couple boats showed up and they got lock jaw, they went totally off the livies. Burley up with chunks of pillies but still no hits. switched to bait and the rats made another show. From here could see schools of dollies under the boat and no takers. After a hour of frustration managed another keeper spinning a metal behind the fad. We could see tones of dollies, jumping around and everything but they were just not interested in what we threw at them. Gave up and headed close in. The brown algae showed up again was 24.2 degrees. Anchored up and could see a pro boat pulling in bonito after bonito. They must of took at least a couple hundred kilos in a few hours. Whatever they were doing they kept the school under their boat and couldn’t even manage to pull one in even just 30m away. Not sure how they kept them there so long and so thick and why we could even entice 1 over our way. Had a livey out the back and got taken a few times and my 100 pound leader bit right off. Switched to circle hooks and had a 30 min fight with a 2meter dusky whaler with the hook holding on in the corner of the mouth. Couple happy snaps and off he swam. With a feed of dolphin fish in the boat we called it a day! Better than a day in the office! Tight lines

    Shark ID please

    Thanks guys after looking at whaler sharks, from what I recall it’s pretty much bang on that, I would say more a dusky whaler from the absence of the bronze sides after inspecting it for a while! cheers, chaser

    Avoca Rocks, Bonito Bonanza. Help!

    Agree with bluefin the faster the better! Also are you letting the metal sink, vary your depths of retrieval! Also what line are you using? I generally spin with braid and Fluro carbon leader. Give the metal a spit shine every once in a while get the light bouncing off it really good, size and colour, if one colour is working try switch it up! Cheers
