Legal Snapper (25-Apr-2011)

The weather has been terrible of late but that didn’t stop us from going for a quick fishing session! The rain was coming and going but only a drizzle each time, enough for it to be uncomfortable. The wind was in our face and the fish were hard to come by. There were a few fish snapping on the surface, which looked like bonito, but we could not seem to attract their attention.

Mixed Bag (06-Mar-10)

Making the most of the unusually warm weather at the start of autumn, I decided to take to the sand flats with my new ecogear sx40 (one to replace the one I lost in Gold Coast). I was getting a few hits every now and then and not long after up came this small snapper at around 22cm or so: Released safely back in to the water. Gave up on the lures and switched to bait and the squid jig.

Port Hacking (6-Dec-2009)

On a windy Sunday, couldn’t find anyone free, so went down to the Hacking myself for a quick session. Decided to use plastics and jig for squid. I tried the beachworm Gulp along some sandflats first. Got a few nibbles and eventually got a small snapper (around the 20cm mark). Put the plastics away and then brought out the squid jigs towards sunset. Managed to hook up on 4. Hopefully will be using these soon for the next jewfish session.

Port Hacking baitfish (3-Aug-08)

Went with dad armed with a big berley bucket and couple of baitfish rigs. Conditions were very calm which made it an ease in catching bait fish. There was a mixed bag of slimy mackerel, yellowtail and the occasional garfish. We cut up a few fresh ones there and threw out some blocks. Resulted in some nice but undersized snapper. Also tried a few live, but no touches.
