    Botany bay today

    Most times there is no waiting ,sometimes if there is a fishing comp on you may have to wait a few minutes ,but considering you can clean your fish wash your boat I think it's all good . If you would like to have a look around the club I would happy to show it to you, that goes for other Raiders also, pm me. Cheers Garry

    Botany Bay saturday 24/5/14

    Fished the Bay yesterday first time for a while lures only, started slow till about halfway into the run out tide then the Tailor moved in and there are some big ones out there [out the front of Coles at Ramsgate] so after donating six or seven jerk shads I moved to the Kernel side of the bay where I managed a few small Flathead a flounder and some small snapper, Just before the turn of the tide I moved to a favourite spot near the Kurnell boat ramp caught a few small flathead and was beginning to think that was it for the day when I got a very solid hook up lots of head shakes big solid runs it was a bit tricky as I was in the middle of a bunch crab traps anyway got clear of them and got it to the boat and after a couple of nervy shots with the net it was in the boat ,the top of the fish box is 65cm so I think it was easy 70cm anyway it was a good end to the day and good to see there are still some good fish in the Bay

    Botany Bay King

    Well after months of trying for a metre plus king in Botany Bay I finally cracked it, today the first fish I landed today was a 67cm model not was I was after back he went, then 2 major bust offs, then another big hit this time instead of going for the reef he went open water and after torrid struggle and some pretty ordinary gaff shots he was in the boat, I still think there are some bigger fish there but as the water I getting colder I don’t know for how long ????????????

    Botany Bay King Thursday

    Went to Molineux Point to chase kings today got some yakkas at the end of the wall and moved back up to the point set the yakkas out then cast out a couple bream rods with pilchard heads on 1.0 hooks lost 4 yakkas but no hook ups managed a Bonito on the pilchard but nothing else, as my mate bringing in his he saw a King right behind his bait but it would not hit it so I dropped my pillie down beside it and bingo away it went and went at least 100 yards of 8LB fireline before it slowed and then went again my mate quickly got the anchor in and we chased it ,by now I am thinking this is a good king and I was right about 20 minutes later we landed a 83cm King, my raider bream rod and 2500 stella and 8LB line and 10LB leader had really hung in there, but my right arm was a bit ordinary, By now the westerly was really blowing so we called it a day

    Botany Bay Kings saturday

    Went to chase Kings in the bay last Saturday got 10 yellowtail in quick time at Moll Point there was some big bait school showing on the sounder so I trolled slowly around them first 2 passes nothing 3pass bingo big hit very strong fish I could feel the leader dragging on the rocks but it held I was using 80lb leader and 50 lb braid, after good fight I got him into the boat he just under 80cm and in very good condition ,next pass got a smaller fish about 70cm ,so I stopped trolling and just dropped straight down into the bait balls got done on the rocks by 2 fish I could not stop so I called it a day , But the Bay is still fishing good
