Sunday in Botany Bay

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

First post!  Took my 2 boys out for a fish on Sunday in Botany Bay, crap weather but they were keen and you got to jump on it when they are keen.   With recent skills obtained from a charter I was keen to get the boys onto some action. 

Pretty rough and ugly conditions @ Trevally Alley meant our luck for Trev's was not great... hard going trying to sink the baits and burley.  Just too rough for catching squid so tried trolling with servo squid for kingies along the wall without any luck.  

Drifted the sands on Kurnell side of Towra for a nice 48cm flatty...  then off to chase the tailor smashing up outside the Georges River sailing club.  If the frenzy are all small choppers, fire your bumpa bar metal lure into the mix, BUT let it sink before retrieving as their can be flatties or other species catching the bits and pieces below the bust up.   Sure enough a solid trevally 40cm was doing exactly that.  And then out of all the small ones we found a decent tailor.

Good day in crap conditions. Happy kids (no2 son now keen as no1 for fishing), and a solid feed for a family of 5. 

cheers

Andrew
