Botany Bay 19/2/06

Hi fellow raiders

Two mates and I fished Botany Bay yday,launched boat

at dawn,went to Molli pt, spent 2hrs fishing there

using yakkas squid and prawns for no keeper fish.

Saw a small alloy boat beside us,with 4 asian fisherman

and about a dozen rods stowed on board.I saw them

over the space of 1hr land 3 small kings of maybe

50cm,all three were put back in the water,but still

hooked up to the rods they were caught on,and the

fisherman would just get another stowed rod and

continue fishing.

We observed this from about 40 mtrs away and with

the use of binoculars,furthermore this boat had no

markings or reg no.s that we could see.

They made a hasty exit when we were busy trying to

land something big which resulted in a bust off near the

boat.We never saw them land these Kings a second

time,but they had seen us watching them thru my binos,

and why had they not released the fish upon 1st capture.

We came to the assumption that they kept the fish

suspended and alive under there boat to avoid being

cought in pocession of dead and undersize fish. :thumbdown:

Anyway after they left we went to 3rd runway,saw birds

working the surface nearby,we spun up 4 Tailor(40-43cm)

in about 2mins,then some clown came thru the school

in his ski boat and that was the end of that.We started up

a berley trail and in the next hr we landed 8 Trevs(33-39cm)

and I landed 1 Kingy(61cm)and lost another thanx to a

swivel that had let go.Kingy and Trevs were all caught on

unweighted peeled prawns.

Tight lines and appologies for the long report.

another reason the might have kept the kings teathered would be to keep the school around, the excitement of kings on the line attracts other kings and gets a frenzy going.

i'd like to think they ended up letting the undersized ones go but i supose i'm just an optimist that way.

sounds like you had a top day out there mate. :thumbup:

There are several Asians that fish the bay on a regular basis & a couple of them are excellent fisho’s particularly on the kings also they release undersized fish, I wouldn’t go pointing the bone at all Asians because some may have kept kings that may have been suss. I have seen plenty of white fellers keeping undersized fish :thumbdown: , sometimes it’s a lack of education but mostly they just don’t give a rats. :mad3::ranting2:

PS nice bag of fish well done :thumbup:

Hi guys

I just wanna say I think some of you misunderstood me

when I said Asians.I did not mean all Asians or some

Asians,It was that I was just describing the guys in that

particular boat,and they were Asians or if you prefer

Orientals.If they looked Australian I would have called

em Aussies,Anglos or Whites.

PS Was back on the bay today,we had a visit from

fisheries, my !st in 5yrs,

full report 2moro after I work out how to attach pics.

Tight lines
