Scratchie

Port Stephens- Back to where it started!

Recommended Posts

G’day raiders, 

Well today was one of those special days. 
I got a text from the very first fishraider I ever took out fishing 8 year’s ago @Spearer1
Since that initial fish we haven’t caught up but have messaged each other etc on various platforms. 
Anyway, today we finally managed to get out after Adam messages me and said he was keen to get amongst some snapper. So today was a bit different as I worked early and we didn’t leave until midday. Conditions looked good but the curse of the full moon hung over our head. 
Well, we well and truly put pave to that myth. Every area we fish we hit up on a good fish. Might not have landed them all, ay Adam (dropped 2 screamers rookie error) but we just kept finding them with some real decent ones amongst the lot. 
It was just awesome to catch up with Adam again and we had as much fun today as we did the first time we met! 
I’m sure we’ll be back out there to do it again soon! Thanks again champion! 
 

cheers scratchie!!!

Good haul of fish as we expect of you. 

Nice to take someone different out and put them on the fish. You must get a few requests for info and maybe a trip as you nearly always seem to get good fish

Thanks Bruce! 
To be honest, during my time with fishraider I have fished with over 200 members I estimate. Many of them I call mates now and some I just catch up when I can which is always a pleasure! This is a very special website! Embrace it!

Great stuff, Jeff! I see a black marlin was caught a couple of days ago in 20m south of Broughton. 😉

No. Live slimey, green water 18°. I’ll have a look when the tourists go home, fingers crossed.
