A couple of squid (20-Dec-09)
Went down to Port Hacking warm yet windy summer day. The fish were hard to come by as the lines were going all over the place due to the wind. Our baits were getting smashed by some peckers, possibly small snapper. Decided to change tactics and put on some hardy squid instead. The squid lasted a lot longer than the fish baits, but were still getting taken by the small ones.
Whiting from Parra River (25-Nov-2009)
Decided to go for a fish with a work mate on (of all nights) a weeknight after work. Had to triple check with him to make sure he was not joking! Got to our spot at around 9pm, pretty good weather but the wind was quite strong. My workmate managed to hook up a bream on his first cast that went about 20cm on a half pilchard. All of a sudden the action died off as we reached low tide.
Whiting Part 2 (30-Dec-07)
Went with my old man to chase the whiting again after he saw the results of my previous outing. Pumped the yabbies at around 5pm and headed down to Port Hacking at about 7.30pm to fish until about end of sunset which was about 9pm. On my second cast I brought up this nice sized whiting: Unfortunately not much for the rest of the day, and my dad managed to hook himself somehow after he tried to free a hooked yellowtail.
Thumper Whiting (16-Dec-07)
Went to target some whiting after pumping some yabbies on sunset days earlier. Decided to go early in the morning down to Port Hacking as I knew there would be a lot of people around with the Christmas break. Reached my destination at 9am, armed with only about 10 yabbies and about an hour’s worth of fishing. Had a few bites with little hook ups while leaving the rod resting on the rail.
