South Head 9-3-10


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Myself and two friends went for a fish on Tuesday, we left Rose bay around 7am, met a

couple of Raiders there as they were launching their boat. They went in search of squid

we set of for the Colours with our Coles raw prawns and a few Garfish cubes.

The water at the Colours was a little dirty looking and there were heaps of little

brown jellyfish about. We caught a heap of undersize Kings at this spot after a few

drifts. We got bored of them after a while and decided to troll some lures back towards

the heads. A few mins into it and as we pass a white buoy a lure gets hit, we bring up a

Bonnie which is followed by a legal looking King. We bring in the lures and drift a few

prawns down. The Raiders we saw at the ramp earlier turn up with some squid as we are

on to a King, he went 66cm. The boys downrigged nearby and got onto a few 70cm+ Kings,

we anchored up and managed a heap more small ones and a 69cm specimen. We also

had Bonnies, Bream, Trevs and Mack Tuna in our berley trail, and we managed to catch quite

a few, we kept some and returned some. Somehow a flounder managed to find a free floating

bait and he went in the keeper box as well.

When the other two Raiders left they gave us a couple of Kings as we only had 2 keepers,

so I'd like to thank you guys, you know who you are. These 2 over 70cm Kings ended up at

the old peoples home next door, the cook and a couple of residents came out while we were

cleaning the boat, and as I have given them fish several times in the past, we gave them

a few fish. So I guess your Kings were meant to go there in the 1st place, I hope you

dont mind, thanks again. :thumbup:

We had a great few hours on the water, now need to find time to get out again.

cheers

HI Raider,

Is the white bouy that small bouy that is out at the colour on south head? The one that looks like a grab trap?

I was jigging for kings out the colours on saturday, however, had no luck getting fish.

Good work on the Harbour again Penguin. I reckon you should have a young bloke on board standing by with a video camera John you never know what your blokes are going to strike when you get out there.

Cheers

There were a few white bouys at the Colours, the one we fished was a short distance

away all on its own.
