Afternoon Trip for Jew Fish

The Boys from Ozrac

Zelko and his 6kg jew

Zelko working hard trying to stop his fish

Headed out Yesterday afternoon with the boys from Ozrac Engineering, Rob the owner was keen on taking a Jew Fish as he did on his last trip out with us.
First we headed to the bait grounds in search of Yellow Tail and Squid no problems the Squid were a little hard but we scored two.
Cape Banks for Kings and boated about eight but all were just under size 58,62, 64 and so on, That was the size of the school that was there but loads of fun on the lighter tackle.
It was time to head back to fish the Bridges, After setting the anchor we set out four baits two Squid one live Yellow Tail and a slab bait so we had all covered, Rob also worked the bottom with a soft plastic. after about two hours and one small run which may have been a big Bream, The second Squid bait screamed off and Zelko struck back and set the hook and the fish headed deep towards the bridge just stopping short and then a second solid run toward the next set of pylon again stopping short, luck was on our side, Zelko then played the fish to the boat, A nice 6kg Jew just what the boys were after this ended a top afternoon and night out on Botany Bay.

How about fishing after work, We are now running these trips every Wednesday afternoon in summer targeting King Fish and then Jew fish after dark we kick of at 4pm and fish to 10pm so if you are keen Wednesday the 12th is free.
Give me a call 0418 169 439.

Light tackle trolling for Bonito, Salmon and Kingies along the rock ledges is a favourite.

Phills Blue Morwong caught Tuesday Henry Head on a Nipper
This Sunday is the singles day and there is two spot still open, Kingies are now a great chance as we have scored a few quality fish of late, Bait has been a little hard to fine on some days but if you put in the effort the results will come.
Trevally are in smaller numbers but most fish are of a good size, The drums, Oil wharf seem to be the spots worth trying, Trevally Alley a little slow.
Trolling is producing the odd fish and the next day all quite Most fish that I have trolled up this week I have found down around the Third Runway but hot and cold.
Bream are now staring to show along the end of the Third Runway and across the Bay, Best results are closer to the river mouth as the Bream near the Third Runway are a smaller run, Nippers or gut for bait.
Spinning with soft plastics slow only the odd Flathead taken no real hot spots to list.

The fishing again this weekend had us working for them on Saturday in Botany Bay, Trevally Alley only produced the odd fish, We watch on as a young angler with his dad battle a Kingie in there boat just in front of us this was a top effort as he was fishing rather light.

Fished Bare Island but no results there moved to Kurnell point just as the tide started to run out, This spot seem to fish better on the run in tide add two more to the bag.

Trolling was next on our hit list and we had already trolled Yarra Bay earlier with no results, Headed to the Third Runway and picked up a triple hook up on two rods on one lure we had a Salmon that was about 1.5kg and on the other lure we had a Salmon and a Tailor both about 1kg one on the front hook and the other on the back hook this turned the day around.

Finished the day with a small Bream and all three Sharks that live in the Bay, Port Jackson,Shovel nose and a Fiddler ray.

Nathan Smith also fished the Bay and found Trevally along the Oil wharf.

Nathan is now coming on board with me and will be running the odd fishing trip, He knows the Bay backwards, He loves the fishing around the close reefs for Snapper, Kings and has spent many years fishing north and south from Botany Bay.

Sunday headed out with my two boys and there cousin to fish a club comp, Anchored in the middle of Bait bay just out from Cronulla on the main reef area, Caught Trevally and loads of Sweep just kept a few and then headed out onto the sand for a drift and the boys caught a few Flathead to finish up.


Target Kingies and Jew fish in Botany Bay.
Head off shore for Snapper, Kingies, Tailor and Trevally.
*Now fish after work*

*Next singles day is on the 25th

*This Saturday is free the 17th for a fishing trip.

Wet week fishing the Bay

Double hookup on Trevally

Triple hookup on Tailor and Salmon

Last weekend proved a tough one both days but we found fish but worked hard.
Trevally Alley started well first up both mornings but slowed very quick all fish caugh were of a good size.
Trolling around the Bay on Saturday produce zip, But Sunday we scored a triple hookup on Tailor and Salmon nere the Third runway and one Flathead.
Bream are worth a try from Towra point and back towards the bridge, Chicken gut would be the best bait to use with all the rain it might be a little dirty come this weekend on the run out tide.
I have spots on the boat open for this weekend so if you are looking for a day on the water the weather is looking rather good for fishing just give me a call

Trevally Alley still a little quite the fish just come on the bite then that's it there gone quite strange.
Trolling on Saturday was very quite so Sunday I tried trolling along the rocky ledges just out the front but no good later that day I trolled the third Runway and scored two Salmon one Tailor and a small Flathead the same area that I trolled on the Saturday and never had a touch.
Spinning for Flathead a little tough over the weekend.
Bream not to bad just in the river mouth just off Dolls Point try Chicken gut as I caught the Bream on Trevally gut as the small Snapper smash ever nipper that I put out.
Yes we caught nice fish both days but we worked for them.
