    Well done. You guys would have stretched arms by the end of that session. Off the rocks too.

    Carp, Friend or Foe?

    I've heard from several sources that they make great bait for some saltwater fish e.g slimy mackeral. It's something to do with the fact that they are so oily and smelly.

    middle harbour

    When I said "clean" I was talking about how muddy/murky it was after all the rain. Sorry, I should have made that clearer. Thanks again for the report.

    middle harbour

    Thanks for the report. I have been wondering if the Harbour is clean enough for a fishing trip or whether it is more like chocolate milk after this rain. If you got tailor then I'm guessing it's not too bad. Regarding the flathead, I usually get a few between Grotto Point and The rudie Nudie beach but they do seem to come and go a fair bit. Sometimes I will get a feed of them and flounder other times zilch. I have never caught a flathead further in towards the main part of Balmoral. Hope this helps.

    Hmm... Dinner, or Bait?

    Cook for one minute!!! Don't do what I did the first time and cook them for 15 to 20 thinking "nah not eating raw squid". Rubber bands are hard to digest and chew ha ha .

    Not a good Friday-Botany 30.3.18

    I also had a dreadful day yesterday. Car Park at Tunks park full by about 5;45 am. Idiots pushing in. "washing machine" fishing for squid. Not takers. Yakkas non existent. Lost a small Bonito next to the boat at about 7am. Friend caught 1 undersized Kingie on a jig and I had one very half hearted follow on a slap stix. Saving the day (if I could even call it that) was a just legal flounder (entree for lunch) and a just legal trevally (sashimi entree last night). Oh well ! I guess we have to take the bad with the good. To rub salt into our wounds there was a bunch of guys, who just got off a charter boat, cleaning a bunch of 80cm Kingies.

    Wollongong Blackfish PB and tragedy

    Would a "Mag Bream" do the job? There are 2 lengths available. Maybe slightly heavier line rating to your old rod. 3 - 6 kg think. If not you might HAVE To (ha ha ) replace your old rod with 2 new rods. A mag bream plus an ultra light 2-3 kg 9 foot stick. Not sure if they make "CR 108 XLs" any more. Good luck.

    SYDNEY HARBOUR MIXED BAG

    Sounds like you had a good day out there. Might try for some bonnies soon myself. Pity about the idiots. What can you do ? I suppose we just have to take the good with the bad.

    Bonny Fun

    I did the Balmoral drift last week and also got flounder and the odd undersized flathead. Glad to hear there are some Bonnies around.

    Pebbly Beach / Station Creek

    Great report and nice Jewie. Sounds like a great spot to get away from it all.

    Great post. Good to see the big girl swim away to make 1000s more little flatties.
