    Yeah I was originally of the same opinion but it works well and there is plenty of power for what I want also the twin 60's are very economical. the max on this boat is 75's which would have been nice but I bought it second hand and I have been after a Sailfish for a while there are not to many around .

    My 6m Sailfish with twin Honda 60 four strokes does the job for me.

    Salmon off the beach down south.

    Took off down south with the wife for a few days of r and r so I did not drag the boat down. After a couple of days of doing the right thing I needed to wet a line on a local beach on Tueasdya after everyone had gone home . With a perfect tide and conditions I latched onto a school of salmon landing over a dozen and one shovel nose for good measure had a ball went through a block of pillies with a hit on just about every cast . The gutters down there are full of Pelagius coming into winter with the run up tide so it is always a good back up if you do no good out of the boat. Couple of picks of three I kept they go ok fresh seasoned with with some slat and pepper dusted with flour in a quick fry up. cheers The Skipper

    Swansea Bar

    We went out early on Saturday and the wind was up so I went south around the back of Moon Island and found a reef full of every reef fish known to man. Had some live baits smashed but no hook ups. Had enough by lunch time when the wind started to drop ( of course it did ) had to get back and help a mate set up his new trailer. Crossing the bar was easy enough as there little to no swell but did note it was very shallow across about 50% of the mouth so respect is always a good thing. There are several GPS marks out from Swansea that I am looking to try and will keep in touch when we are going > The Skipper

    I am looking to go out through Swansea tomorrow. Conditions look good wind is looking to be around 15kms at 9am and then tapering off and swell prediction is for around 0.5 mt all day. So really conditions are good if you wanted to have a crack. Just be sure to log on with "Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie " before you go out . Cheers The Skipper

    Port Stephens winter reds- whose interested?

    Hey Scratchie, I am happy to sponsor the event with supplying some printed tee shirts for all who turn up. So knowing a confirmed date would be good and getting access to a logo and details to put on the tees. The offer is there if you want. Cheers The Skipper ( Paul )

    Barrenjoey Spots

    I am planning a trip up to Patonga and wet a line around Barrenjoey Headland in a few weeks. Would anybody be kind enough to shares any spots they may have around there as I have not dished there since I was a kid with my Dad along time ago. Any help would be most appreciated. cheers The Skipper
