Sydney Sunday.

Recommended Posts

Gday all, late report. Sunday morning was a bit on the chilly side with little swell about, and not much current to boot either. We just drifted with the wind.

 Things were slow all day especially with the moon, but the fish were there. Some pan sized snapper about  a few Yowie fish and stumbled across a patch of nice blue spots. Literally caught them all in one drift.

 Still a few whales about, at one stage we had 2 headed towards us with a number of boats that descended upon us. One whale boat and a trailer boat passed by within 10M of us. Both getting a mouthful about how close they were to us let alone their close proximity to the whales which was far less than the min of 100M.

 Anyway nice morning out, the wind getting stronger from the west as the day wore.

Was that whale boat a red one - capacity for 20-30 odd? I was staying in a house in Coogee that had a telescope, and they followed a pod for ages, pretty much in their midst.

Thats a great bag finin. Good to see your still getting a few

that area off manly is so fertile. Lots of patching reef so it can be hit and miss at times

i had the same complaint heading back in there was some 200 sail boats out and about in the entry to the harbour and they were everywhere..... heading in all directions and in no logical route.... the only safe way to pass was to skirt along the outside very close to shore....
