First time out on the bay in a while on Saturday. Took my 10 year old & his friend. Unfortunately I forgot the bait! So with the wind a bit blustery, & casting inexperience, we struggled. After a fruitless hour, we hid behind Bare island, then Molli point to escape the wind, but still nothing. About 10:30, wind died down, so headed to the yellow market near Watts, where we sounded some fish. Unfortunately they turned out to be mostly jackets. I’ve lost a lot of lures to them these last couple of months, & again within a few mins.. So taking advice from raiders (thank
Hi All. Heading to Jervis Bay with my brother for 10 days after Anzac Day. Was wondering if anyone has been getting a few kings "inside" the bay ie Point Perp, Middle Grounds, Longnose etc? Not after specific locations, just info if they are still around in numbers? As want to minimise the amount of gear we take down if they aren't really about. Also any squid about at the moment?

They had live prawns and were pitching em from the jetty and managed a few very nice bream which went back in the drink, one of which went 37. We chatted while t
Hi Raiders Left the port early, with the intention of fishing off Garie beach for Flathead. About 1km past Jibbon Bommie I passed over what appeared to be a very large bait school, so out went a bait jig. It soon loaded up and in came 4 leather jackets and 2 missing hooks. Dropped the jig down again to catch another 4 Jackets. Not looking good so moved on. Checked out the Marley wreck but 3 Seals were cruising around so didn’t fancy my chances of bringing anything up past them. Stopped a couple of times on the way to Garie but each time I lost rigs to the Jackets. This was repeated many time
