Damn those birds.

We did the same on Sunday... and they were an absolute nuisance. I saw a bird gagging on a fish - realizing it was my livie - I managed a hard pull and saved the poor livie from the jaws of bird!!

Pain in the asses they are!! Where is a bronzie when you need one!!

Anyhow managed two dollies - then all went still...

Sorry to hear the boss called before you got more!.

Went up to the Forster on Sunday (14/2) afternoon and fished the FAD on Monday. Water temp was down at 21.7'C but there were dollies in solid numbers right on the FAD. Got a rat kingie on a livie first up then started to hook dollie after dollie in quick succession. Ended up with 6 dollies 70-80cm mainly caught on whole pillies and live yakkas. Caught plenty of undersised dollies too.

After about an hour the fish went off the bite like somebody flicked a switch. You could see the buggers in the water but they wouldn't touch a bait. Trolled some lures around the FAD and a bit wider out but had no luck there.

Called it a day and headed back in at about 10am as the Forster bar can be a bit nasty when the N/E wind picks up.

Sorry no pics as we left the camera at home.
