  1. Head down the 1770 Marina Cafe and try his vanilla slice. It’s awesome
  2. I use a 7 foot 6 inch Shimano Cranx 1-4kg rod matched with a 1000 reel. 6lb nanofil and 8lb flouro leader. 1/12th oz jighead. cant buy the Cranx in the 1-4kg anymore unfortunately and they don’t make nanofil anymore either. But any similar gear will get the job done.
  3. Pummy Passage mate. Northern end. Yeah she was sunning herself keeping warm Gulp Swimming minnow. 4 inch in Green Prawn 99% of the time it’s soft plastics mate. Use as light line and jig head as you can to reach bottom. Fish it nice and slow.
  4. Managed to snag a solid 88cm flat one. 6lb braid 8lb leader. She put up a good fight and swam away without a problem.
  5. Cheers mate. I need to get some more vids up. I have heaps of footage, just too busy to edit.
  6. Got three all around 48-55cms. There have been some big girls moving in with this cooler weather. Got a 79cm last weekend. My cousin has 3 over 80cm in the last couple of weeks too. this is the time of year to land the big girls.
  7. Yeah. I’ve wanted one for ages. I wish I’d got the initial strike on GoPro. The line was just streaking across in front of the yak. I couldn’t reel in the slack quick enough and then zzzzzzzzzzzz it was peeling drag. I chased it down. The vid only caught the last third of the tussle. Pretty happy camper tonight. Also went home with a feed of flathead so can’t complain
  8. Have had this on the bucket list for a while. Scored it on about 8inches of water. 6lb braid and 8lb leader
  9. Yeah went with paternosta rig and pretty big lead as the current was ripping. Everyone said I was mad until I was landing fish while they mucked about untangling each others lines. We used squid and strip baits. A bit hard to find livies in the warmer water this time of year. Iron jaw was what Damo named it, pert of the job fish family. Will be interested to see how it tastes Thats a big mahwong in the tray. We tried to revive it and let it go but it was cooked so one of the guys took it home for his neighbour that he hates. The iron jaw is between the moses perch and the tuskies
  10. I got away over the long weekend up to my block at Agnes Water. I had booked a day on Hooked on 1770 charters run by Damo. (Highly recommend him, he works hard to get his crew a feed). We headed out about 20 mile to our first spot in nice conditions. A couple of Tuskies hit the deck at the first drop but that was it. We spent the next few hours working hard to cratch up a few fish. There was a heap of current with the new moon and things were tough. But as i said Damo works hard and he kept moving and we ended up out on the eastern side of Fitzroy and started to fill the esky. I ended up with 4 nice RTE, 3 trout, 3 tuskies, an Iron Jaw, a moses perch and a few hussar. Out of the 7 of us on the charter I reckon I did ok

  12. Must admit I've been pretty slack. Heading up to 1770 this weekend for an offshore adventure. Weather looking awesome at this stage, who knows, may do another report
  13. We got 146mm of rain Friday night and into Saturday morning so when I set out for a fish as the tide came in on Saturday after the last of the scuds rolled through I didn't hold too much hope as I've learnt the flat ones don't fire up immediately after a big deluge. It usually takes a day or two. I decided to go have a poke around anyway. Seems I was right. Only one flatty landed that went 43cms. I let it go and decided to take the kayak out the next morning and fish the top of the tide in close to the mangroves. So I arrived at my launch spot at 4am and turned the car off. Then I restarted it and headed home because I had left my rods at hime. Luckily I only live 10 mins from my launch spot and I was back and on the water at 4:30am as the first of the light started to become visible on the horizon. There was plenty of bait around and there were swirls aplenty so I was feeling confident. By 5am I had my first flatty that whacked the 4inch Gulp curl tail grub as soon as it hit the water. After a fun little tussle on the light gear I had it in the net. A nice 58cm model. Into the keeper net it went and I continued to hunt around. By 6am I had bagged out. I caught a couple more and let them go and by 7am as the tide topped out they had shut down so I headed in for a cuppa.
  14. Yeah so have mine but mine cop a flogging ng and I must admit I could treat my gear a little better still I’ve had it a good 4 years and I’ve landed a few with it
