  1. Yes definately agree about fishing during the quieter times with no boat traffic. It makes that much difference. We had some great snapper fishing results in the bay around Green Island particularly this year. Baits depend on time of year. This time was on fresh local squid. Looking forward to exploring some of our old marks with my sons, and spending some time around the more southern bay islands soon, along with those damn mozzies...... ☺
  2. Well with a friday off work and with a wet and windy weekend coming, i pondered the thought of heading to Mud for a quick solo session. Checked the radar, didnt look too bad and besides the weather bureau always seem too early in their predictions. Lol So hooked the tinny up, grabbed the rain coat and headed out. ZERO trailers at the boat ramp, yep its official i'm the only mad idiot. Conditions ended up being not too bad across to Mud's western side. Arrived at spot x, hit spot lock on the minny and enjoyed the serenity while looking back at brissy's ominous weather. Anyways, landed a couple of good eating size snaps around the 65 cm range. Headed home before dusk, made it safely back and happy i went afterall. I should add that although wet, the forecast was only for 10-15 easterlies.
  3. Lol A good read and looked like great bay conditions Sounds like a great day out lads !
  4. Couldnt resist another quick fish this afternoon with the weather so great! Grabbed a couple of cans o beers and headed out to a gloriously flat bay. Set the pointy end of the boat towards Green island again, although a slightly different spot, cracked a can while cruising out there and really enjoyed the smooth ride and anticipation of what might unfold today. Set the Minny on spot lock and slowly floated down two baits and wasnt long before one of the rods buckled over with the reel screaming off line! Boated a nice snapper, rebaited and in again and wasnt long before number 2 snap hit the deck. It really is hard to describe how hard these go in 5- 6 metres of water! Doesnt get any better than that so decided to head home early and cleanup the gear.
  5. no, thats the new renegade, for a small tinny really impressed all round and especially with the ride and the stability at rest ! 50 yammy four stroke, side console The only improvement i found it really performed much better after i fitted a hydrofoil And of course as previously mentioned, the minn kota with spot lock just ramps up our results shitloads!! Thanks for the kind words and encouragement, it really is grreat to be back to the bay where i feel i belong!!! Anyone know of where Webby {Brian} and any of the old Ausfish crew ended up? I can't seem to get my head around why i should have to pay to become a member of a fishing site to contribute towards it?? weird shi t that is .....
  6. About 15 years ago i used to fish the bay islands regularly with my sons and one close mate, but then some life changes got in the way and my close mate unfortunately passed away Back then i was a regular to Ausfish and met some great blokes, and had some great fishing adventures. I sold the 5.2m Formosa 10 years ago or so, but have recently rekindled my passion for the bay again and have bought a 4.2m Renegade with the desire to fish the bay again with my two sons Well, the glorious bay is still there all these years later and i am thoroughly enjoying re-living the good old days! What a beautiful place we have right at our back door! Luckily i kept some gps marks from all those years ago which are still producing some great fish. These are from east of Green Island in just 5-6m.
  7. I have a 4.2m Quintrex Renegade and recently self installed a Minn Kota Riptide I Pilot with spot lock. It was under 2K complete with a 120ah battery. I have never used the anchor since. The advantages of using it when fishing or even exploring are mind blowing , lash out and spend the extra coin..... Actually i would go as far to say that it would be more important to me, if i was on a budget, to spend the coin on an Ipilot, instead of spending more on a flash tinny and a flash motor It's like i've been born again... and i"m an atheist lol gives me a boner every time i go out and deploy the electric ......
  8. Picked up a Minn Kota " i Pilot" for my tinny and self installed myself recently. All of our fishing is estuary based and also including open bay areas from Macleay out to Mud island Holy crap, i don't know how i ever did without one! , what a magic bit of gear...... Spot lock is fantastic ! Have not even thought about touching the anchor rope since yeeeehaaaaaa Obviously also great for slow trolling lures, slowing drift speeds when flicking plastics and doing it all silently without spooking fish. As long as the elec motor lasts for a considerable amount of time , i would consider it the best value piece of equipment i have ever purchased for any boat ever.....
