Fishing Charter (31-Jan-10)
Went on another charter for a bucks night, this time with a different mob: http://www.deepseacharters.com.au/. Picked up from Balmain wharf at 6am sharp, we were on a fairly old boat, and seemed to take an age to get out to our destination which was past the heads. It took 18 on board, and we were fishing from the one side of the boat which was a bit of a squeeze. Some were feeling a bit queasy before we even reached our destination.
Nice by-catches (24-Jan-10)
Went for a quick afternoon fish down on the Port Hacking on an overcast Sunday. The water was surprisingly calm and the weather was great for fishing. There weren’t many fish on the bite, only the occasional small tailor. Switched over to soft plastics for a while without much success. On one retrieval, I had a dead weight on it, in which I thought was a crab. Left it down there for a while longer and it came on again and latched on with the unmistakable pumping action of a squid.
