Bay and off shore weekend

Big reef Jacket taken on the drift.

Morwong are one fish you will find drifting over
hard bottom and love Prawns and Squid.

Top effort a good Snapper taken in 24metres on a plastic on the first cast.

Small run of Bonito are along the coast
and around the entrance of the Bay.

Saturday was a day out on the Bay and the Trevally turn it on with good numbers along the Oil Wharf, Drums and Trevally Alley and the weather played the game to, light winds from the north east but it kicked later in the day and blew all night, great when the next day we are heading off shore.
Sunday and yes the bloody wind was up early pushing from the north east at about 12knots as we trolled past Cape banks heading north for the day, picked up eight Bonito then anchored and fished baits down a burley trail, one good Snapper taken on a plastic and a few more on baits and three Trevally, pushing wide from Coggee to try drifting in 65metre picking up one good Morwong, a bag of Flathead to end the day, shore good to head back into the Bay today thats for shore.

The boys and there catch from today

South coast day 27th
Well another trip south with a top looking ahead of us as we left the boat ramp, flat seas around the entrance, but as normal Sydneys weather turned it up with a southerly pushing in around 15knots so the trip south was a little lumpy, but the fishing turned it on with Bonito along the coast early trolling, then to the Hump and in the conditions we had drifting was our best chance and we did well on Morwong, one nice Snapper (they were in hiding again) Pig fish ect after a few hours we motored back north and had a top session on Flathead wide off the Bommie to end the day.


*Wednesday the 3rd south coast run to the Hump targeting Snapper
spots open for this trip.

*Friday the 5th spots open for a Botany Bay day.

*Sunday the 14th spots open for a Deep sea trip.

Botany Bay fishing report

A few Snapper from last week
The boys and there top catch from down south

A ripper of a Trevally caught at the Oil Wharf on Sunday.
Saturday was a wipe out with the weather so it was to the water on Sunday to a much better day, it still blew from the South west most of the day.
Trevally Alley was the idea start and it fished well with Tailor and Trevally, the water was quite dirty it will be great when all the work is finished at Port Botany and they let the Bay settle again.
Worked the Brighton beach area with soft plastics for two very small Flathead.
Trolled Yarra Bay, The Oil wharf and the beach front at Brighton for zip so yet to see any surface action.
Last Wednesday we headed south from Port Hacking to target Snapper and fished wide at the Hump first and found it rather quite so we moved and tried a few other spots and did rather well a few Reds, Flathead and a mixed bag.


*Friday this week is open for a Deep sea or Bay trip.
*Wednesday the 27th we are heading south again to target Snapper
and I have three spots open.

*The Fishing School is on the 1st of November at Hunts Marine
6pm to 9pm and the 6th on water, join me
for the day and I will teach you my methods and spots to catch fish every
time you fish Sydneys water ways.

Botany Bay Fishing Report

Kirt with a few good fish caught on Sunday at Trevally Alley.

Solid Bream from Trevally Alley.

A windy weekend out on the Bay with easterlies all day Saturday swinging on Sunday to the south east about 15knots making the Bay rather choppy.
Both days Trevally Alley fished well with Trevally and a few Bream but hard work and a good burley trail was needed to bring the fish on the bite both days.
Trolling very slow on both days Saturday we trolled Yarra Bay for zip and Sunday I tried Kurnell head land and back in around Oil wharf for the same so not much around in the top end of the Bay in the way of Tailor, Salmon ect, my thought are to try the lower end maybe along the beach at Brighton early morning or late.
Spinning with plastics on Saturday landed a Flounder and a Flathead but zip on Sunday.
Towra wide on Saturday afternoon we picked up a few Bream but only one keeper but they will now slowly improve each week as the water warms up.


*Singles day this Wednesday the 13th one spot left for
Snapper trip south from Port Hacking.

*Wednesday the 20th singles day spots open.

*Singles day Saturday the 23rd Botany Bay trip five spots open.

*Next Fishing School is on the 1st of November at Hunts Marine
spot open $220.00 per person, come along and let me show you all the
methods needed to fish Botany Bay and Sydney's water ways the class
includes a day on the water allowing me to
