The reds were in action near JB on the weekend gone as well. We managed a couple of good feeds. Largest fish was 3.2kg cleaned

That’s the goal mate! At least I timed the weather to perfection yesterday.

That’s great! Always nice to come home with a feed of snapper. 

We pretty much bagged out but let a heap go! Landed between 40-50 fish for the day and managed 6 around 70 plus. Biggest of the day went to woodsy with a thumping 82cm model but fat as weighing 8kg whole!

Thanks Sam! 

All year round snapper up here mate! Still trying to work it out but the big bruts seem to be September-October. With the winter months more plentiful. Then summer comes along and you start with snapper early morning, then chase marlin and mahi mahi during the day, then snapper and kings late arvo! Oh the struggle! Haha 😂

Yeah mate, cracking weather! It helps living by the water! 

I forgot to post but I went out Sunday with the kids and landed 20 whiting in the bay. The day was so nice that I was worried about Monday but could not have picked better conditions. Then the snapper turned on big time! Sad to say we left them biting! 😥

Lol BN. I’m just the luckiest fisherman you know! No skill involved, “just keep casting”!

I try to only break hearts, mate! 😂

Just got the call from the outboard mechanic. The computer wasn’t reading the fuel pump and I think the computer itself needs replacing - $1700! Boat will be sitting in the boatport for a while, I think! Warranty was up in January.

Ouch Baz! That’s what I’m saying. If you didn’t have bad luck, then you’d have no luck at all. 😂😂😂

Let me know when you have a Monday off!!!

Thanks Rick, big Neil and others. It was another great day at P.S. Hopefully we can have another FishRaider weekend and get some better weather so we can all share in the snapper.

Well done again, fantastic fish! We're going out friday/sat up around broughton, weather not looking the best but better than mon/tues for sure. 

If you dont mind, what depths are you mainly fishing? We have been going ok, but definitely not 40-50 fish a day! 

Thanks mate 👍

Friday and Saturday look horrible mate! Sunday looks fishable but will still be bumpy. 

We generally find our fish in 8-20m of water.

Haha yeah it's bad, i meant compared to yesterday! 

Thanks for the tip, probably been fishing a bit deep, best thing about Port is there's always plenty of options even if it blows up
