1 months fishing in 1 post. port hacking/Cronulla

Recommended Posts

I have been off work for a bit fishing mostly weekdays when there’s no crowds. Launching mostly from in the hacking. I check this site regularly and thought I need to Give something back. 

Heres some of my more notable catches and how I got them. 

68cm snapper, caught on a hole squid on a snelled rig targeting snapper offshore from Cronulla 5Nov

68cm Kingfish hole squid on a poor mans downrigger in the hacking 14Nov 

62cm salmon on a hole squid under a float in the hacking 14Nov

I have caught many gummy sharks out from Cronulla and the national park from 90-120cm originally taking strips of squid when I was drifting for flathead but then I started targeting them putting out slab baits on snelled rigs 15-30NOV

Squid have been on fire at the entrance to the hacking and out the front.

A good month there mate :biggrinthumb:.

Wow on the gummies, I didn't think they were caught this far up the coast.

If I got one of those I'd be keeping it as they are a pretty nice fish to eat so I have heard?
