  1. No problems, I’ll do more soon. Unfortunately I didn’t get any decent photos of the third one I used on the weekend.
  2. It has been a while since I have made a report and in the ensuing period I have upgraded the boat. I will post about that separately in the boating section but in short I now have a Haines Hunter V16R with a 90hp mercury on the back which means I can venture out a touch further than I could in my 3.5meter 10hp tinny. This weekend was my first opportunity to get the new boat wet so we went down to Sussex Inlet on Saturday to start getting a feel for it. However the weather was not the best and when we arrived on Saturday afternoon it was blowing a gale, this meant the Basin itself was un
  3. Location: On the corner of Pacificana Drive and Alamein Road in Sussex Inlet. Condition: Single lane ramp concrete ramp with no amenity. The ramp itself is in good condition, however due to the narrow ramp it is only suitable for small boats (tinnies and kayaks). Parking/Facilities: There is a small amount of parking nearby, on grass (enough for 4 to 6 cars and trailers). All Jettie's nearby are privately owned. Access to ocean: This ramp offers excellent access to Sussex inlet and from there to the ocean across a bar if you wish. Notes: I own a 5m fibreglass run
  4. Location: Follow the signs to Murray's Beach inside Booderee national park, Jervis Bay. Condition: Two concrete lanes in good condition. However they are small and bigger boats will tend to take up both lanes when launching. This is not too problematic as the turning is also small and prevents multiple vehicles from trying to launch simultaneously. Parking/Facilities: Plenty of parking nearby, however you will be in competition with beach goers during summer who will park in the trailer parking area. Toilets are located nearby and the ramp is surrounded by a breakwall and L shape
  5. Great fishing mate - good catch.
  6. Hi Repb7, I dont have the marks as I didnt mark them up and dont have that sounder anymore - but the fish on this trip came from the deeper part of the lake near sanctuary point. Its all pretty consistent around that 9m to 9.5m mark and it was just a matter of drifting til fish started biting. I have been back to that area a couple of times since though without luck on the snapper (caught flatties though).
  7. Hi Jon, Those dolphins saved my uncles session at North Bar beach a week or so ago. He could see salmon but they were beyond reach in the waves, then the dolphins moved in and pushed the salmon inshore and he got 5 stonkers in quick succession. Great photos.
  8. The same thing they'll do to the Tantangara, Jindabyne and Eucumbene when Snowy Hydro 2.0 is finished. : (
  9. Thanks Hoods, that’s great advice.
  10. Hi All, thanks very much for the replies. Some excellent advice there. definitely keen for a boat show and also to get out to in as many craft as I can to get a feel. paddy thanks very much for the weather info. It’s just what I was after. I had a laugh at this bit: “you can fish in a large long period swell if you have the stomach to cope“ My sea legs are a bit suss. I’m absolutely fine underway and never feel remotely ill, but the green goblins a definite possibility If I’m bobbing around in shit and trying to tie rigs and stuff. If I can keep my head up and move the boat ev
  11. Hi Crusher, yep thermals and beanie for sure! Although the thermals weren’t much chop on closing weekend when i got distracted and walked in too deep and flooded my thigh waders! Christ that was cold.
  12. Hi All, I am new to boating and currently fish estuaries and lakes in my 3.5m tinny. One day (hopefully relatively soon) I will upgrade to a 5m boat to poke outside in. I am mainly interested in flathead drifting, fishing Montague Island and heading out to the Fads. I am keen on some advice on what the sea states are usually like around the south coast of NSW at various times of the year as this is where I will be putting in 90 percent of the time (JB, Batemans Bay, Narooma - possibly Eden). I understand that under 1m is considered a very small swell - but how often does this happ
  13. Trout fishing is what got me hooked on fishing so to speak, well over 20 years ago now. However I had actually never fished one of the famed snowy mountain spawning runs until this year when I had my first hit out in the Jindabyne region. The weather forecast was dismal, and I nearly didn’t pack the rod until a colleague from work pointed out that the forecast squalls and storms would likely only fire the fish up. I was principally in town to visit family following easing of Covid restrictions, so fishing was a secondary objective based around that. A window came up late on Saturday a
  14. Thanks everyone. I should have added that this trip was really improved by the people at fishraider. I read some old posts that were spot on re advice and also got further advice from helpful members. i have been fishing for over 20 years but virtually all of that has been chasing trout in stream or from the bank. I’m lucky I have a partner who loves being on the water (sailing background) and is keen on leaning to fish. So at the moment I just love quantity over quality as we both get excited boating new species (this was both our first ever tailor and snapper). When is the best tim
  15. Hi All, I was tossing up where to fish on the long weekend and decided that the 22 degrees of St Georges basin beat the hell out of the brass monkey weather forecast for Lake Eucumbene, so I packed the boat and headed down for a couple of nights there with my partner. I have only recently purchased this boat (my first) and am still setting it up the way I like it so this trip was a good chance to evaluate some trim adjustments I made to the motor recently. Of course fishing was a primary consideration too, particularly putting my partner onto some fish as she has almost no experi
