Batemans Bay/Sth Durras GPS marks

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Good morning Raiders. 

I’m heading down to Sth Durras (Batemans Bay) soon with the boat for 2 weeks. 

Does anyone have any GPS marks they would like to share, just to make things a little easier. 

Mate there and FAD’s or Wave Buiys in the area and if so do you have their GPS markings. 

Many local tips on fishing areas and species I might find would be appreciated  

Thanks

Hi Shakey,

I will get some today for you.  What type of fishing are you looking to do, where launching from, how big is your boat etc?  Cheers..............

Dave

Hi Donna,

There isn't too many for the batemans bay area, I can add a few if you'd like to include them in the gps section.  Cheers

Thanks very much Dave. I knew I could count on a Raider. 

I have a 2000 model Seafarer V-Sea (5 metre) and launching from Sth Durras as long as the ramp is okay. 

Ive heard there is always a feed if flathead in the bay. 

I hopefully will be heading to sea looking for some good reefs. 

Is it worth trolling anywhere?

cheers and thank you

Hi Shakey,

The V sea is a very nice boat and will get you plenty of places.  The ramp at South Durras (SD) can be a bit tricky with a lot of sand covering the ramp and wind and wave action making things hard to get back on the trailer.  I think you may struggle there with a 5m glass boat, but if conditions are kind you should be OK.  Otherwise you may have to head into town and use the Hanging Rock facility which is good in all weather.

Try trolling around Wasp Island out the front of SD, and the nearby headlands always a chance of salmon, bonito, kings, tailor etc.  Often some good squid around the Island as well.  Beagle Bay is full of small flathead, but you can sort through them to get a feed.  Try the marks out a bit further and you should do OK.  There is plenty of good ground off North Durras in 40 to 70m, just sound around and you will find them.  Great area for snapper on plastics if your into that.  

Send me a post when you are down, I fish up that way most of the time, so we may be able to meet up on the water.  Hope you have a great holiday.  Cheers..............

Dave

i’ve been home a couple of weeks.  I tried a few of the marks for no result.  Southerly swells and wind didn’t make for good fishing.  Plenty of flathead to be caught between Nth and Sth Durras. 

Thanks for the marks and I’ll be giving some of the others a try next time I’m down there. 

I did notice some locals on a couple of days head out from Sth Durras boat ramp and head straight out between the island and kept going until out of sight. Not sure if one of the marks is out there but speaking with another local there is a great reddie spot out there. I’ll do some exploring next time. 

Once again thanks.

Cheers mate, sad to hear you missed out.  I've been working a few bottombash charters the last couple of weeks and the fishing has been very hit and miss.  Currents all over the place with toad fish starting to move in and take over from the leather jackets!  Better luck next time mate.  Cheers...........
