      1. My nephew is a marine biologist currently working in Norway. He surprised his family by arriving home in time for Christmas. He is a keen fisho so I promised him a trip while he is home. He leaves tomorrow so today was the last chance and also the best day wind wise that we have had since Christmas Day. I have been keen to drag a paravane around for some spotties, but reports have been average so I thought I needed a back up plan. Decided to put in at Manly and troll around Hope Banks and use bait fishing at Green as the back up. Conditions were perfect early and it glassed out around 9am. We trolled for about 2 hours with no result. No birds working or any signs of action so we anchored off Green where we lost heaps of pillies and squish’s to undersize squire and a few very small trevally. Called it a day around an hour into the runout. Nothing to show for the day but still a great day on the water. I have been thinking I need to take better car3 of my gear. What do you think?
      2. awesome morning out on the boat (Pilfer) today, was just checking out a couple of secret spots around green island for the first time....and of course wetted a few lines, caught the gold spotted rock cod on a soft plastic - black prawn and tayt caught the 40cm lizard on a zerek fish trap - dinner sorted!!!
      3. Part report/part question for others. Headed out to Green Island at dawn this morning - bit of swell around but all good (just means less boats ). Found some decent structure with good fish life around it so anchored up, got some good quality squid baits into the water and started the berley trail. Aaaaannnnnnnddddddd proceeded to get molested by hordes of trumpeter (was fun a few weeks back with the kids but not so much when you've got good baits out and are hoping for some squire/snapper ....... Tried moving to the flatter bottom/deeper water adjacent to the structure hoping this might throw them off the scent but they were obviously everywhere. So ....... is anyone else experiencing them, are they common or is this unique? I kept reminding myself of what I'd read about fishing for red emperor and not striking at the smaller hussar bites but sadly no bigger fish scared the little blighters off!!! On the plus side I located a few marks I'll try next time and had a fun couple of hours with the wife and kids sheltered on the north side of Green with us kept busy catching some pike (good way to stock up the bait freezer ... ), a 33cm tailor and a couple of flounder (tried to look up the legal size as it wasn't on my chart but the page wouldn't load - next time they may be eaten!!). Anyone else out and about?
