Hi Raiders

Just a late post from the weekend.

Hit the water @ 8am with 2 mates with the plan to get some salmon, tailor, flatties and crabs.

Did a troll of the third runway and molli point for a donut...

Headed to the flats and dropped a few crab traps before working the SPs....

Noticed the water was a chilly 13.1 degrees and the fish were not going for our slowly worked lures so I started working them a lot harder instead with big double upward sweeps. The result was this:

Keeped doing the same thing and hooked up about 8 flatties between 36 - 38cm which were all released. I did get another unit that was about 55cm which went home with me for dinner :beersmile:

My mate pete also go 2 nice flatties which were 60 and 62cm.

My other mate Ty managed a small just legal flatty (we call these fish fingers!) which was released and he ended going home with zip. :thumbdown:

No worries mate we will get them next week :thumbup:

The crabs were not playing ball either.. after 3 drops only managed one nice size unit

We also tried the hotwater outlet and trolled molli again for a donut. :ranting2:

At the end of the day we got a few nice fish for a feed and had a great time on the water - perfect conditions...

Will be out there again next week!

Cya all

Hi Brad -

I think the fishing should pickup in 6 - 8 weeks time. Looking back at last years catches, we started getting good numbers of flatties and kings in late september all the way through to april. Hope it will be the same this year as it was amazing last year.

Cheers

Not bad, Trung!

I was out on the harbour and got nothing but baby snapper! I could see the fish on the sounder, but they just wouldn't fire up. Will try ur method next time for sure. Well done mate
