Fishing mid week pays off.



Botany Bay turns it on after the southerly that came through on sunday, Bream were on the chew just of the runways and Nippers scored well as bait, Not a big run of fish but plenty of them.
Kings are still in great numbers and I think they should hang for the next month or so so if you would like to have a crack at them I have a few weekends free over the next month, I have found them in a number of spots, Live Yellow Tail or Squid are the baits to have and just fish deep water near any structure and you are in with a chance.
Trevally are starting to show again and we scored a few at Trevally Alley over the week also Salmon and Bonito are hanging around hear, All fish taken on Pichard cubes.
Spinning for Flathead still slow with the odd fish caught.

Big Kings in the Bay



This weekend and late last week had my clients hooked into a few solid Kings, Live Yellow Tail and Squid seem the main bait and a few smashed floating Nippers fished in the burley trail, Thre biggest Kings measures around 85cms and we lost one fish that we just couldn`t stop I even tryed adding extra drag and then my thumb and then it clean us up on the bottom. Love this type of fishing.
Bream are still in small numbers starting to thin out a little.
No surface action at all this weekend and today was totaly out dew to the weather.

Still a few spots left for my Fishing School on the first Monday of the month at Hunts Marine this also includes a full days fishing be quick as these spots will go quick.

Red hot kingie bite mid week


Well it pays to fish mid week as the King fish were on fire, Andrew and father Ross and two good mates boated nine kingies the best going 84cms and the others were all about 65cms to 70cms along with three bust offs what a day.
Trevally are again showing and I had good catchs around the Drums in the middle of the Bay on two outting early morning.
Surface action quite only the odd Friget Mackerel.
Bonito and Slamon both took a liking two our live baits while targeting Kings.

The next fishing school is on next monday night and there are a few spots left if you would like to learn all the spots and all my methods in targeting all that swims in Botany Bay come along the school this includes one night plus a full days fishing out on Botany Bay, But be quick as these spots will fill fast.

Hot and Cold




Botany Bay can test one at times and Saturday was one of those days were you try all that you know tring to find just a few fish for the boys, But you can make them bite, Bream just of the third runway were there but we move five times for six fish.
Just about fished every marker pole in the Bay for two under size kings and these were the only two we seen.
In the morning worked both head lands for Kings with live baits and then trolled without a result. Tought day.
Sunday was a complete turn around as fishing can be, Fished the drums first and scored well, Trevally and Kings also a Bonito and a small Bream.
Spinning just wide of Towra two Flathead on plastics to finish the day, Two days just shows that fishing is a guesting game at times.

NEXT SINGLES DAY 29TH OF APRIL STILL A FEW SPOTS LEFT.

WEIPA TRIP IN OCTOBER I HAVE FOUR SPOTS IF YOU ARE KEEN FOR A RIPPER TRIP SIX NIGHTS AND SEVEN OF FISHING BLISS.

Botany Bay over the last week has fished rather good. Kings early in the week were around in good numbers scoring a few solid fish around 80cms, Squid and Live Yellow Tail as bait, The bream all week just off the third runway and the middle of the Bay fished well but only a small run this week most fish only around 26 to 30cms, Nippers as bait, Sunday the tide was only small and there was no run in the water so the bream were a little light on, Found a good school of Tailor right on low water just out from the Sticks, Spinning with small metal lures worked well.
There is a few Flathead around the sticks so drifting this area might produce.

NEW AFTERNOON TRIPS ARE NOW UP AND RUNNING SO IF YOU ARE KEEN FOR A FISH AFTER WORK OR THE WEEKENDS ARE BUSY IN THE MORNINGS WITH SPORT, FISH THE AFTERNOON ITS THAT EASY JUST GIVE ME A CALL. 0418 169 439

Mixed weekend with surface action on Friday and a little tough on Saturday but still caught quite a few good fish, Again Bream on both days made up the numbers in the middle of the Bay, Small live Yellow Tail on Saturday were put to good use and we score a few good Flathead on them but we had to move around to fine them.
Friday we had Kings,Tailor,Bonito, Trevally and Friget all feeding on the surface but a different story on Saturday and very quite this is fishing.

The last day in March is still open and I have only two sp[ots left so if you are keen for a days fishing give me a call tomorrow and I will get you on that trip.
On that day we target Kings Fish, Bream and Flathead on Soft Plastic and chase surface action as long as its there, So if you are on your you can now just join in.
