How good has the weather been I hope all fisho had the chance to get out onto the water over the last week, flat seas light west wind just great.
We fished Botany Bay a few day for Bream wide from the Third Runway, Flathead Trevally and Tailor as a by catch.
Deep sea I found trolling the coast very slow only hooking one Bonito over two trips.
The shallow reefs are producing well with Trevally and Snapper in 20metres, just find a drop off from 15metres to 25metres as a guide and start a good burley trail and fish light.
Deep water in 50metre to 70metre look out bloody Jackets are about in big numbers and we lost quite a bit of gear and the fishing is very slow.

 Tyler`s supper Tailor caught trolling the Bay.
 Dave with a nice Snapper caught in 20metres of Cape Banks.
 Two hours Sunday morning not a bad effort, who said Bananas are bad luck.


*My Fishing School is on Monday the 6th at Hunts Marine 6pm to 9pm 
and on the water on the 11th one spot left.

*South coast Deep sea trip Wednesday the 8th spots open.

*Botany Bay trip the 12th of May two spots open.

Easter Sydney Fishing Report
A great Easter for all, the weather played the game well allowing us to hit the water and find a few good fish, not that easy as we worked for all the fish we caught, Bay is still fishing well for Bream but the surface action has slowed, trolling worked on Sunday scoring a few good fish, Monday very slow on the surface a few small fish hooked.
Great looking water pushed into the Bay but again no kings, had the odd live bait hit but no hook ups, let hope the Kings push into the Bay for a late run before the season ends, reports of good King Fish coming south from the Port Hacking might have to head south on the 10th and have a good go at them, Thank Les.
Deep sea on Saturday, what a strange day, weather was spot on but no one told the fish, Trolling the coast early produced two small Mac tunas, we then anchored and could not lose a bait in three spots very strange not even a Sweep.
Headed wide off Coogee into 65metres and the currant was running to the north very strong and we could not hold bottom fishing on the anchor, so I headed to the far south end of the reef to try a drift, now 11.00am and only two small Tunas on board, fingers crossed this would work, first drop double hookup on good Flathead and away we went with Snapper, Flathead, Pig fish and others, great way to end a trip.
 Tailor caught trolling the middle of the Bay.
 Hows this for a ripper, top Bream caught wide from the Third Runway.
 Mick with a nice Sydney Red and top Flathead from 65metres off Coogee.

 Good size Squid from Yarra Bay.
Lady luck struck as we swap anglers, hooking this great little Mac Tuna.

Another nice Snapper caught drifting on Saturday.
