Xmas camping Snappers

Recommended Posts

Hi guys..

Had a camping holiday over xmas on the clyde river.near batemans bay.

Got into some breams and whiting but not in big numbers. Probably lack of skills in that style of fishing.

Decided to launch at batemans bay and look around. first time fishing this area.

found some reefy area and flick some gulps.

Got a good take at first i thought it was a king. but happy to see

red. my cousin and I ended up with a few snappers for xmas dinner.

Lovely fish, great dinner. Did you venture out as far as the Tollgate islands?

Boat looks good, what is it?

Cheers

Awesome work mate especially given that you have never fished that spot before and caught your target fish!! Must have been all that practice this year.

Some great reds there, well done.

Thanks mate. There are quite a few Santuary zones and especially around toll gate island so I steered clear of them and head north to Durras.

I got the fish near wasp Island close to Durras.

It seemed the only options for Batemans' bay, are either head north of south of it.

The boat is a Formosa 520.

The lure that worked that day was the pink shine gulp nemisis.
