SNAPPER (9/19)



  1. You can get cabbage and some stringy weed from the ocean rocks at Cronulla. Other alternative is to use artificial weed (green weed flies) just tie onto your blackfish rig.
  2. Yes they are more available in winter, once you know how to rig and use blackfish gear Know where to collect weed, which rocks to fish off and which tides to fish. You must have had a good teacher.
  3. Very nice reddie for the Hacking
  4. The blackfish had gone . I think the rain last week may have moved them down the river a bit. My son and grandsons got these down the river early this morning.
  5. That would have put up a good fight on light tackle. Has weight a big tail and they don't give up. When we are allowed to travel take a trip to one of the inland dams walk the flats with soft plastics or small lures sight casting to cruising fish is an exciting trip. We fish with 1 or 2 kg outfits.
  6. Hi Gordon I'm lucky live not far from the river, have found a couple of new rocks to fish off and still allowed to fish within the limits I 've booked to go to weipa again next year haven't confirmed any of the details, after covid cancelling two years might be 3rd time lucky Bruce
  7. Friday 20 th aug went solo fished from Jibbon down to Marley. Had a couple of drifts for flathead plenty good size up near the hacking down near marley they were smaller. Fished headlands and reefy areas for wrass and coutta sweep, got 2 good squid near the bommie and kept 10 flathead 42 - 52 cm. Monday was a bit windy fished Georges 50 min no bites went home Thursday fished Georges and the fish were there caught heaps kept first couple then started throwing back fish keeping a couple here and there. Ended up keeping 8 fish 30-37 cm. A quick trip on fri provided a couple of 39 cm fish plus plenty of throw backs. Luckily Georges river is only 3 klm from home and I can find a spot to myself.
  8. Still plenty of boats out the carpark at grays point was full. No queue to get in or out so safe distancing.
  9. Nice tailor I find they are better eating at that size. The reddies help make a good feed. The jackets were still cruising around on sat.
  10. There were plenty of barrcoutta just off shelly beach on Friday they fit your description and no reason they wouldn't come inside the hacking
  11. Fished inside Port Hacking yesterday morning. 10 km from home wouldn't get me very far into the ocean so stayed in the river, used fuel already in the boat and bait from the freezer so no interaction with anyone. First boat trip for a month. Have enough for few more trips yet. Fished a few of my usual spots, few small reddies , the ones just under 30cm had me thinking I had dinner, couple undersized flathead and trevs all went back. Eventually came across school of yellow chinaman jackets, they weren't big but are quite tasty so kept a feed of them. Harvesting them might even save someone from losing rigs in the future. Had a few short (2 hours) landbased blackfish trips to the Georges which is only couple km from home, walk in and have the spot to myself. Fish are patchy most days 2 or 3, other days a dozen or two. Fish the same tides just depends if a school is swimming past.
  12. Another good result. The whiting are really good eating and the salmon gave you a bit of fun
  13. It's very hard not to take them. Monday wed fri are our childminding days normally after school but school holidays its all day, if we are in Sydney. Its fishing every day rain hail or shine. They now do the anchor and help with the trailer good company too
  14. Yes I had a few anxious moments luckily there were a couple of other raiders who netted it so saved me losing concentrationon the fight. Hope this covid clears up quickly, I have an important fishing trip the middle of Aug
