G'day Raiders! Im looking for a fellow salty seadog who is keen to get stuck into some toothy critters offshore! Currently based in Brunswick and more than happy to pay for fuel ,gear,bait and snacks (no bananas) Ive been off the tinnie for a while now due to a wrist injury (cant cross the bar safely) but would love to get out on the water in the next week or so, Can travel and WILL travel a large distance to get some tight lines! After all its always worth it! Happy Fishing!!
Got a couple of new lures in the mail yesterday, so took the kayak down to a local creek this morning and fished the run in. No wind and clear water it was perfect for a flick, the high was only just over a meter so it was really shallow through most of the paddle, perfect for some of the flats further upstream. I tried the duel longbill hardcore 90sp first, and slowly drifted along the edge of the sand flat casting toward the bank in water about knee deep just bumping it along the bottom. Only took a few casts and this nice flatty smashed it, put up a good fight too. Measured her at 76cm and was released Saw a couple of huge lays in the sand too alot bigger than this one, ill be back for sure. They say big flathead will come back to their usual spot so it's only a matter of time The other lure I got was a yozuri crystal minnow but I never got around to trying it! Always next time clip from the GoPro - https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=biYaRO7D-To Yeww
Just a little report from last night up the beach. High tide was 9:45pm so drove down around 7:00 to find a spot. The Nor-Easter was still blowing pretty strong but thankfully it died right down just before dark. Had a bait out by 7:30 (beachworm) and fished till 10:00, jewy bit just after 9:00. Was the only bite all night making it a pretty slow few hours! But always worth the wait. Looked like it had been attacked as some stage too, he had two puncture marks and a pale white patch about half way down the body. Still released fine Not sure where all the bream and whiting are hanging out but haven't caught one for weeks.
I am moving to Coffs next year sometime and are looking for someone who fishes offshore and wants some company and someone to share costs with. I have a 3.9 metre tinny and go crabbing in Bonville creek (if that interests any one) but cant see myself buying an offshore boat. Regards to all
