  1. Hey squeak6969 Alright, yeah. I reckon you should get another net in that case, as it will throw so much differently. It is up to you though, stitch it first and see if you sill think it will be good . Colmslie Jetty is my spot for lots, high tides are when you normally get them. There aren't any snags and there is heaps of herring around too. It is very well fished though. Cheers Hamish
  2. Hi squeak6969 Sounds like you had a pretty good session until you ripped your net, the same thing happened to me a while back. I stitched mine up but it throws quite differently now so I still need to get used to it. Cheers Hamish
  3. Hi Old Scaley Yes, I guess it is 100% up to me (or my father to be specific). I am sure there will be debate in the household about it, but I hope COVID-19 will not have a sudden up rise of cases. We are making our decision judging by how the curve in rising cases go (it has flattened out recently). It is not necessarily a risk for us, I s'pose, but probably more for others. Like you said, it is a matter of "can" and "should". Cheers Hamish
  4. Hiya GregOug Alright, thanks for the advice. I'll only go with my Dad and we will keep updated to see if stricter laws are put in place. Cheers Hamish
  5. Hi all I just have a question and I'd like to hear some opinions on it - Would it be acceptable to go to Nudgee fishing for a feed of crabs and flatties/whiting/bream? Cheers Hamish
  6. Hi GregOug Yep, I'm starting to think the lucky numbers will be unlucky and the unlucky numbers will be lucky though. Cheers Hamish
  7. Hi all Yesterday arvo I decided I would go for a shark session and normal session at the local park. I rigged up the rods and got to bed early, so I could wake up early. Well, that didn't work one bit and I eneded up still waking up at 6:15AM. I got to the park with my lines in at half past and then decided I would leave at about 10:00AM. When I got there, I started on the jetty. The tide was roaring through, and I chucked my shark line out with eel that was caught in Brisbane River Session #13. The lines were baited with prawn I caught in the cast net yesterday. I initially had nothing, and it stayed very quite for the whole time I fished on the jetty. Change of rig, different casts, rebaits - nothing. I eventually packed up the gear and moved back onto the pier, and put my lines in there. It took about 20 minutes for a bite, and when I finally struck and hook upped I knew it was tiny. After a decent fight, which almost led to me getting stuck into the mangroves or around a pylon, up came a tiny catfish. I took a photo and threw it back, off it kicked - The only thing stopping me from a donut After that, which occurred about 1 and a half hours into the trip (8;00AM) I kept fishing. In the half an hour I was sitting down, and talked to a couple of people (social distancing was applied ) and I just said I caught a small catfish. This may have been because it was near the tide change, which is about at 8:50AM. It was still a considerable time though, and I find fishing the channel made between the jetty and the bank works best on rising tides. As well as this about 8:45AM my shark line went off. I went over hoping I was on and to my dismay it had dropped it. I had the drag set, which in my opinion was a mistake, and then it came back again. This time, it just gave a yank and then was gone. Oh well, I was disappointed but I let it go . For the rest off the day, well morning, there was not much happening. A far smaller strike on the retrieve on the shark line, a couple small missed hits and one good hit which spat the hook. This has been one of my worst days to date actually, but it is better than staying home. My mate came down as well and I caught nothing in the cast net due to the big tide. I think that next time we will go flicking plastics at Nudgee as well as put some pots in. Hopefully we can get a feed of crabs, whiting/flatties/bream and it will be an exploratory mission as we've never been on the kayak there. Here are the statistics of the trip for anyone's reference - Stats of trip: Tide: Low 2:12AM, High 8:30AM, Next low 3:20PM - I fished the run in, change and run out Moon Phase: Waxing Gibbous - first phase after quarter moon, about half moon Time fished: 6:30Am-10Am Fish caught: Catfish x 1 Bait caught: - Bait used: Prawns, eel Tackle used: 650 Penn reel, 30lb braid, 30lb leader, 80lb 20 inch wire trace, 6/o circle hook, Rogue Fire point rod, size 6 sinker, size 1000 Sienna and 2500 Nasci, Shimano, 14lb braid, 20lb leader, 4/o hooks, size 2 sinkers Overall Success: 40% - A nice morning out Alright, I hope you enjoyed the report. It's a lot shorter than most as well, simply due to the fact it was so quiet. I hope you all stay well. Cheers Hamish
  8. Hi Samboss I don't know about the Sunny Coat, but are you land or boat based? On boats, sand flats, creek mouths and where all the boats are will be where the prawns are LOL. Land based, jetties that are lit up at night should have a few. Here is a website I found - Cheers Hamish

    Hi GregOug' LOL, thanks for that Cheers Hamish
  10. Hi GregOug That must be annoying, I heard they were tipping sand on a skatepark in Maryborough as well. Cheers Hamish
  11. Hi Gad Yes, it will be annoying when that happens. Currently, I am only going out to the local park with family members. I have also heard they have upped patrols on the rivers, creeks, etc so i assume most will get fined for doing the wrong thing. Cheers Hamish

    Hi ellicat Perfect timing, I have just seen this now! I will see if i can watch. Cheers Hamish
  13. Hi all I got these this arvo in the ten foot cast net, down at the local park - All of them had size, but at the start I thought I would come home with nothing as all I was getting were tiny buggers. Then, the tide started running and these came out - tomorrow's bait. I got a silver biddy and 2 catfish as well. Cheers Hamish
  14. Hi GregOug I should've known that anyways. I saw on the news that auctions (in person) were off. LOL. Cheers Hamish
  15. Hi rayke1938 That is a pity, I wonder how many will be caught (not in a dangerous situation though). Cheers Hamish
