G'Day Raiders, Headed out today in a tinny down the Woronora River from Como. Armed with some dodgy old refrozen prawns and frozen squid, the sun on my face and no wind at all it was a perfect start to the morning. Lauched just before low tide and cruised down towards Bonnet Bay. Stopped there to drift along with the current and threw some bait out the back and flicked soft plastics up on the sandbanks. I was hoping for a few flatties having had some luck there before, but my SP skills seemed to have deserted me today. Not that they are very advanced in the first place! I was also nervous about leaving my rod with the bait on it untended as I flicked so soon reverted to two rods, both with bait. Having previously lost a rod overboard not far from here! Prawns seemed to be doing the damage with lots of bites when finally I land a small whiting. This was the first of a few but all undersize but quite aggressive. Finally managed to land a bream but just undersize so back he went to fight another day. Next up was a surprise as my rod loaded up and a fight that was stronger than the bream but not like a flathead. I brought the fish in and surprise, surprise its a luderick/blackfish caught on squid! I know that they sometimes eat prawns but this was a first for me. I struggle to catch them on weed in areas where they school but catching one using squid in the middle of the river was unusual. But it was a solid fish and a keeper which will be dinner tonight. Next up were more bream with two decent sized. I kept one to go with the luderick and released the other one. After that it slowed down with just more small whiting and an undersize snapper. So it was time to head back to the marina and head home having had an enjoyable morning and landing some keeper fish. Usually I'm land based so getting out like this was fantastic even if the return was modest!
Hey Raiders!!! Mate and I are planning to hire a tinnie from Como and looking at maybe boating down and around Woronora system and Georges. As I am normally a non-boater angler, I was hoping to reach some more secluded spots or boat-only access areas which hold a good day of fishing. Just wondering if anybody has had any experiences or know of any consistencies in these systems who would be willing to share/point me in the right direction, and any advice on what type of gear/bait I should use. Ill most likely be armed with 2 roads, Raider with 2500 sienna, and Shimano Sahara with a 3000 reel, both with under 10lb line. Happy Fishing ktan3235
