Offshore fishing in Sydney

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, this my first time posting so here it goes. 

Went fishing on a boat for the first time, didn't  know what to expect. It was actually quite a good experience. We got picked up at Balmain wharf and headed out the harbour. As this was my first time in a charter, the morning scenery was considerd breathtaking to my standards as we made our way out of the Sydney harbour, passing the harbour bridge, opera house sydneys landmark locations. 
Now to the fishing, when we got to our fishing spot, colin the captain gave us a quick demonstration and to our surprise.. the first line drop he caught a fish(flathead). We were given our own rods to catch fish.. we dropped our lines down to estimated depths of 90m to the ocean floor... and when the fish bites it was exciting feeling.. only problem is having to reel the fish all the way up which was tiring work. Between 5 people we caught close to 30fish which were flatheads, snappers, sargent baker, morwong and a red cod. It was amazing results. The downside of the trip was it took a while to get back, and once we got back to Balmain wharf, Colin scaled and gutted all our fish.
This was definitely a great experience for a first timer which i like to share. 
Luckily we all took sea sick tablets prior to boarding the boat just in case otherwise it would of been a different story

thanks for reading.IMG_5804.JPG

Lol.. 4 out of 5 guys in the video was Asian. It wasn't just a educated guess... it takes someone with knowledge of maths to come up with those percentages. Like the stereotype types goes.. papafish.. you must be a... a fisherman who is really good at maths.

and yes  to answer your curiosity I'm Asian who loves steam fish too.
