Top weather great fishing

This is the best time of the year out on the water, just stick your head out the window today and have a look and its been much the same for the last three to four weeks.
Saturday out on Botany Bay had us anchored at Trevally Alley with a good run in tide at 6.30am and the Trevally and Bream were hungry all the boys caught there share what a top session.
Trolling was next and the Tailor finely made a show, Bag six nice fish and lost a ripper of a Kingie right at the boat, two great sessions on the Bay.
Sunday was a repeat of Saturday but the Kingies made a show sucking down Nippers, Live baits and Pilchard cubes, I though Saturday was good but Sunday was even better at Trevally Alley.
The Tailor had moved and it took us a while to fine them of Sunday, but this time they were feeding on top so out came the metal slices and the boys had a ball.

Winter fishing

Just a little jacket from the Peak

Botany Bay at this time of the year produces well, Trevally are one of the targeted species and there are good numbers around the deeper water spots like Trevally Alley, Bare island and the drums, Also I have found Slimys and large Yellow tail around the drums and sticks.
Trevally are also just off the third runway.
Spinning with soft plastic along the third runway will produce good Flathead just work the drop off along the markers.
Trolling in the Bay of late has been a little slow but the Tailor should start showing up on most trolling runs.
Good Bream are a top chance at night in the shallows along with the odd stud Whiting you will need to fish the run in tide for best results, Nipper for bait.

DEEP SEA this week we fished the Peak in good conditions but the Leather Jackets made it hard snipping leads off one after another we even caught three on jigs.
But we put a top feed together of jackets, Pinkies, Morwong. No Kingies but they will start showing in good numbers soon and winter time on the water is the best time to fish off shore we have week after week of flat seas and no wind, Hey we can even start at 8am if that suits no need for early starts.


I have this Wednesday free for a deep sea trip or a day on the bay.

Saturday, Sunday 24th and 25th the afternoons are open 1pm to 7pm.
Wednesday the 28th is open for Deep sea or a day on the bay.

The fishing school has spots open for our class on the 2nd of June this starts at 6pm at hunts Marine and we follow this up with a day on the water on the 7th out on Botany Bay, I show you all you need to know when fishing Sydneys water ways.

Shut down on the Bay

Well the weather was at its best, no wind, no sea and all this on a weekend hard to believe, but the fish seem to have lock jaw, Saturday I fished five spots that normally produce good numbers of Trevally and a few Bream only to find Slimys and large Yellow tail at each spot.
Trolled both the Runway and Container wall with no luck so out came the soft plastic and we found a few Flathead for the day. Barry a good mate scored well on Saturday afternoon at Trevally Alley on Bream and Trevally but said he burley hard to bring them on the bite this was on the run out tide.
Sunday we headed off shore, filled the live bait tank with Slimys and head to the Peak, The Kingies should now start turning up in good Numbers over the next few months and we will be heading out there when the weather suits jigging, as all the new Shimano jigging gear is now on board and ready for action.
Drifting two baits on the bottom we scored a solid Morwong and a few Leather jackets, Bloody things are every were.
Hooked a solid fish on one of the Slimys but pulled the hooks, Droped a jig and hooked a solid Bonito. Headed back to the Snapper grounds but very quite only the odd fish.


*Saturday the 17th I have four spots open for a day on the Bay.

*Weekends I have the afternoons open 1pm to dark, Fish the bay or Deep sea.

I have four spots open for a top week of fishing up on Cape York, Fish the blue water targeting Tuna, Mackerel, Trevally, Queen fish and lots of beast from the deep. Head up the rivers and creeks for Barra, Jack, Cod, Finger Marks and many more. This is a live aboard so you are on the water 24/7 so you can fish all night.
I have two 4metre runabouts to explore this vast area.
If you are keen just give me a call 0418 169 439.

Headed off shore today to check out the Snapper and found good numbers of plate size fish and the odd larger fish as well, I have just loaded the boat with new Shimano rods and reels spooled with Schneider braid just right for this type of fishing, also great for jigging Kingies.

We anchored and fished across broken reef and also caught Flathead and Jackets we finished with a top bag of fish at the end of the day.

This weekend the weather is looking good and the sea conditions are just right and I have the boat free for Sunday morning if any one is keen just give me a call and we head out to the same area and boat a few good Reds.
Next week I have a few days free later in the week also for Deep sea or a Botany Bay trip if this suits
