Port Stephens winter reds- whose interested?

Recommended Posts

G’day raiders, 

There seems to be a fair bit of interest in a Fishraider catch up in the majestic Port Stephens. 

So it’s got me thinking and I thought I’d put up this thread to see who’s keen. 

Winter would probably be the best time to visit, with less crowds, more accommodation available at a more reasonable rate. 

The snapper fishing should be in full swing with plenty of bay options too! 

I would be happy to share GPS marks, techniques and help with any info required, too anyone that attends. 

Haven’t considered a date yet as I’ll wait to see who’s interested. 

Please put your hand up below and I’ll add you to a list! 

Cheers scratchie!!!

At the very least, the whales should make an appearance! 

Who you calling a whale?! 😂

Sounds good! I suppose it will have to be on a weekend? I hope it will fit in around my roster! 🤔

You’re not wrong. I was all set to fish tomorrow with a former work colleague of the missus. He came up to Port this morning and is sleeping on his boat with his 2 sons and wanted me to crew for him as they’re not too keen on fishing offshore. We were going to try the FAD. I was all rigged and set to go then my son comes in saying he has to pick up a car in Sydney tomorrow and guess who has to be the other driver? 🤔 Damn! The things we do for family! 😂

I tend to work every second weekend. If I get enough notice, I can try and swap with someone.

Pencil me in too Geoff.

If I can get the time off work, would love to be there.

Any idea which month are you thinking of? 

On top, I have a couple of Christenings coming up (not sure when yet) and a wedding in August as well. Hopefully it's not at the same time.

8, 9 & 10 June is the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend and the Bluewater Country Music Festival here. So accommodation prices up and might be a bit crowded. And I might have a gig (hoping anyway).

Is there a moon phase or tide pattern you’re looking for? 15/16 looks a little better on the Maori charts.

Count me & the 2IC in pending on solid dates, revolves around me being able to get annual leave on the finalised dates... gotta apply long in advance to be in with a chance.
