  1. Hi everyone I am having some trouble working out what prop to buy to replace a damaged plastic prop. Everone keeps asking me to find the pitch but i only have a serial number on whats left of the prop. No dealer will help they just ask for the pitch and diameter. I have attached a photo of the prop will the only detail available and worndered if anyone elae had been down the same path. Please help!!!!! Regards Matthew
  2. Hi all Just a quick report on a trip even if the kingfish was undersize last Wednesday. Left Patonga boat ramp about 7am with a smooth ride over a moderate swell straignt past West head due to the swell and safe boating fishing solo. I decided to head for Palm Beach Ferry whalf to get a squid for bait. After a couple of casts I found a small squid and decided to slow troll mid water around the moored boats. Half way through the mooring my rod bends over so I drag it into open water and start playing the fish. Short fight on heavy line produced a 60cm King with amazing purple hues down it's side. After a quick photo and a swim release and cam back to the Wharf and scored a small cuttlefish who also got a mid water tour of the mooring. No luck in Palm beach so whalf I headed to Careel bay and tried to find the wreck off the Tomahawk but no much. Decided a quick trip to Scottland Island for one more slow troll before the bad weather hit without a touch. No bait and no signs of any life so I started home but the storm caught up and passed me. An interesting trip down the Western side of Pittwater and with cold rain bUcketing down and a rather hairy crossing of the hawkesbury saw me safe and back on dry land. Looks like the wind will stop me from getting out thus weekend but you never know. Cheers Matt
  3. Thank you i will concentrate on the squid and the Kings should happen. When slow trolling do you find they strike on one direction?
  4. hi all i am heading to Port Stephens for a weeks fishing. Any tips for Kings early around the heads, inshore reefs or breakwall? All help much appreciated.
  5. Regan Great shots under water looks amazing. Where did you get the Kings?

    Patonga Bay

    Yes a few white caps soon turned out to be waves i could surf! Thought i had a nice flatty as the shark pulled a few times. Oh well next
  7. Hi all Not a successful trip but i thought i would share some dangerous moments with other raiders when trying to hit the water for a late afternoon fish during summer. The goal was to troll Lion Island and the joey late aftetnoon but the weather gods were not happy. I launched solo from Patonga ramp and rounded the point into the Hawkesbury river and very soon i was crossing large pressure waves as the tide ran out and the Nor Easter blew. A few bigger waves broke up the little 4.5m runabouts windscreen so i knew it was time to turn around. Not an easy task when the waves were peaking and crashing but i got behind a big one and followed it back to safety. I decided to kill a couple of hours drifting Patonga bay for a small shark with wiskers (no idea what type of shark) and a large Occy that i had to let go after he eye balled me. I normally fish day break and will head up river next time i fish another Summer aftetnoon coinciding with a low tide!!!!!!!! Happy fishing Matt
