    Beach fish. Central Coast.

    It's been a while since I posted but I retired about six months ago to Lake Macquarie and have a bit more time to go fishing. I went down to our local beach last Friday afternoon about 3.30. Wasn't very hopeful as the beach was like a lake and very little white water but thought I'm here so may as well have a cast. Ended up fishing through till about 6.30 and caught a 59 cm Aussie Salmon, a 51 cm Tailor & a 39 cm Flathead. I was using pilchards on ganged hooks. Turned the salmon into Thai fish cakes. Thanks for reading.

    Tailor Failure At Fraser

    Yer. Its amazing how good the fishing was the week before you go and how fantastic it gets once you leave but at least you got a few and its sounds much better than being at work. Richard

    Whitsundays 4 Day Trip

    Ben I did the same sort of trip as you a couple of years ago. We were on a 40 foot catamaran and trolled all sorts of lures all over the place for zip. I had a bit more luck in the tender, trolling along the edges of the fringing reefs. Unfortunately the heaviest gear I had was about 20 lb breaking strain. I got blown away a couple of times but managed to get a few smaller trevally, queenies, one small Spanish mackerel and other reef dwellers. I couldn’t agree more with you about well worth the money. It’s a beautiful place. You’ve got me thinking I’ll have to start planning another trip up that way. Rich

    Report On Sp Day

    Pete, Thanks for taking me out in your boat and your advise on the water. Even though I didn't end up with any fish in the boat it was a great day with good company. That whiting was a beauty. I don't think the photo does it credit. Also to all the admin for all their work in organising the event and Mich who ran the class I was in a very big thankyou. Like everyone's comments earlier I had a great day and can't wait for the next one. Regards Richard
  9. Roberta, Great report and photos as usual. Pity You couldn't find those comp winner bream but it sounds like you had a great time anyway. Regards Richard
  10. Congratulations on 7 th place finish. Great report as usual with some beautiful photos. I use to go to Dunbogan for my annual holidays when I was a kid. It really is a pretty spot. I look forward now to the blackfish reports from Forster. The blackies were probably just starting to feel safe again after a Roberta free summer and now they will be shaking in their fins. Regards Richard

    Easter Weekend Away

    Its surprizing the damage a kangaroo can do. I ran into one in my car a few years back. It hopped away without noticing and I was left with a huge dent in my grill. At least you caught a couple and you will have a fishing partner keen to go fishing with you for a while. (although you will probably be hearing about her flathead for a while as well.) Regards Richard

    Woy Woy

    A friend of mine had a similar problem but he did drink at least half a dozen beers a night. The bream wasn't caught near a brewery was it? Nice catch anyway.
  14. Roberta, Thanks again for taking me out and showing me the ropes. I really enjoyed the morning. It is a very addictive style of fishing. I went out again on the Friday and tried around the padocks area as I had caught 6 bream (26 to 30 cm) the evening before on bait so I figured there would be some around. Unfortunatly I didn't have the same success as the session with you. It was a bit windy which made it hard to see the lure so I went back into Breakeneck channel which was out of the wind. I got one follow from a squid and a couple of swirls near the lure but no hook ups. I think the bigger boat made it harder to get into the shallow water effectively but it is amazing to think I was out there for four hours. Didn't catch anything but the time flew by so quick. I'm back at work now but I'll definatly be giving it a go down here. The method just opens up so many areas I would have looked at as unfishable. A big THANKYOU again and I might see you next time I'm up that way. Regards Richard
