    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

    @antonywardle can you shed some light on West reef? Had no luck the last few times I have fished there! Is there some local knowledge that can be shared about the reef!

    Terrigal trags

    Hey Jenno, very similar I reckon and same consistency! Cheers Rick! Thought he had me on the reef a couple times but the Saltiga brought her up! I launch at terrigal And fish from crack neck to Norah head, I find the action bit better around there! If I fish around terrigal I find the closer to the shore the better! He’s turning into my best fishing buddy! Each trip is priceless!

    Terrigal trags

    First fish of the new year began at 530 from terrigal boat ramp with the old man. Water looked clean and the water was sitting at 22.7 degrees. Biggest mistake of the day was not picking up yakkers before heading out. Steamed out a little and landed on reef. Trolled around marking big schools of bait but after a hour of trawling, couldn’t tempt a fish. Water here bumped to 23.4 degrees and the bluest I’ve seen in a while. Decided to bash the bottom (25 - 30 m)and bang into a school of teraglin! Fishing was great for the first half hour and then it hit the bottom of the tide. Fishing went slack with pesky reef rubbish chewing on our baits. Half hour later, it went bang and soon we bagged out on teraglin, biggest 90cm. The reef was pumping and bonito’s made a show, and the birds were working. Strippies were mixed in there and were fussy as not taking interest in what we threw at them. Managed to get three in the boat. Min the mix of it all managed to get a few mowies in the boat also. getting ready to pack up and decided to float a pillie down around the 15meter mark and it got hit by a frieght train. The Saltiga was getting smoked but eventually got it turned. It ran down then out then down again. After a 20 minute fight got it up to 10 meters or so and it shot back down breaking my 30lb Fluor leader. Not sure what it was and it will bug me for weeks wondering. It was a heavy weight but when it ran, was getting massive head shakes and when it dove it went down like a bullet. Been struggling to get a king in the boat this season and this could of been it!! any ways not being greedy we packed up and tried to pull up the anchor and we were stuck. After a long wrestle and a broken anchor guide we got it off (serves me right using a sand anchor on a reef). Headed home with a bag of trag, Bonnie’s and mowies. Great day fishing. Best part of the day was fishing with old man having fun reeling in fish.
