Mixed Weekend of Fishing

Saturday had us out at the Peak targeting Kingies, But no luck only scored the odd fish from the bottom and found the day rather tough that's for shore as did other anglers out there.
Sunday headed north and found Salmon working just of Yellow rock and we boated a few before heading wide to fish the bottom and did rather well with a mixed bag of reef fish.
Monday fished the Bay and Trevally Alley fired early with good size Trevally until the tide turned and stated to run out and they stopped.
Spinning for Flathead is proving rather good with lots of anglers doing well, I boated a few today on Squidgies just of Towra Point.

Sorry about not having my reports fresh as the last few weeks were spent in Weipa along with
six anglers from Sydney and what a top week of great fishing and a top bunch of
anglers and yes Glenn the food was spot on. The photos should spell it out for all.
Botany Bay has been rather good, Today did well on Trevally along Trevally Alley and pick up a few Tailor trolling Yarra Bay early, Most of the third runway is now a no fishing zone as work has started on Port Botany expansion, you can fish along the front and down the western side only this is a bit of a bummer.
Spinning with plastic had us drop a solid fish right next to the boat, my Father Bill and Clive did well late last week with a good bag of 15 Flathead one was 75cms and they put her back, they work hard fishing all over the Bay, no real hot spot.
Deep sea on Sunday saw us land Quite a few Leatherjackets and Flathead just wide from Botany Bay, we fished the Peak early but no Kingies and it was a little quite on the bottom.

Botany Bay Trevally are fishing well as the love the cooler water that is around in winter and Trevally alley is the spot, Burley is needed and fish as light as you can with small baits.
Trolling of late has produced the odd Tailor but you need to work on them as they are moving about so finding them is the trick. The Third runway is one spot that I have score a few fish.
Spinning with plastic along the edges of the runway is also working well for the odd Flathead.
Luderick are a top species to target in winter and the rock walls along Brighton beach and the Container wall are two spots worth looking at.
Deep Sea is fishing well with Kingies around the Peak in small numbers so live baits are needed but the odd fish is falling to jigs. Dropping baits to the bottom on the Peak is a top chance for Snapper, Mowrong and Pinkies and yes the odd Leatherjacket, Why not jump on board next Sunday for the Kingie trip out to the Peak.
The close reefs are holding good numbers of Trevally, Sweep and Snapper and the odd Kingie.

*Saturday the 6th Botany Bay Trip.
*Sunday the 7th Kingie Trip.
*Saturday 13th Snapper Trip.
To book into one of the above trips just give Scotty a call 0418 169 439
