Batemans Bay Area

Recommended Posts

Hi Team

We are heading to Batemans Bay on the weekend and are keen to grab a feed. We dont want to head miles and miles offshore but are more looking for a reef or something nearer the coast. Does anyone have any ideas or GPS marks we could try

Hi Luke,

Have you fished the area before? As you cross the bar the first island in front of you is Snapper Island. Sound around the left hand side and in front and you should find plenty of slimies for bait. Berley up with some bread and they souldn't take long to show up. Head out and turn north or south just make sure you are outside the sanctuary zones. Find some hard ground and there is plenty, and you should get a good feed of mowies. They are thick at the moment and of good size. The snapper however have been a little slow and hard to find. You don't have to go far, start looking around 25m deep and then move out until you come across the fish. Good luck..........

Dave

Can anybody shed some light on the Canyons, ie depth and distance from hanging rock ramp

Or if any body has some other spots that would be good for cubing or trolling out of the Bay, I would be more than grateful

Or I am happy to take you along

Regards

Ian
