Port Stephens- something different

Recommended Posts

G’day raiders, 

Just a quick report from this morning. 

Was going to head out with Woodsy but a quick change of plans ment I was going solo. So I decided to dust off the yak and drift around the bay! 

Paddled out in great conditions, had an sp drifting behind me and casting a 1/8 3/0 jig with a 5 inch in front. It took a while to find them but once I did a got a few. All around the 50cm size! Great fun and a peaceful morning on the water! 

Cheers scratchie!!!

Looks like a very relaxing way to spend some time on the water Jeff. I would have kept some flatties for fillets though !!

You do realise snapper less than 60 cm are considered "good" by most 😂😂😂 hopefully you get to tangle with some string pullers soon....just leave woodsy at home next time!

Good work there Scratchie. For a bit of excitement, you need to drop an angry and wriggling flattie in between your legs and try to stop it from spiking your 'jatz crackers'.  :074:

Released... Well done, but I have a strange thing with Flathead, they are so good to eat I just cant let them go, so long as they are at least over 40cm. 🙂

Thanks mate! Cracking day and got a nice drift all the way back so the fuel consumption was pretty good!

Cheers Gordon. I also like to keep a feed of flatty and do on most occasions but this day was just merely to wet a line!
