Botany Bay 11/4/06


Recommended Posts

Went for a fish in the Botany Bay this morning ,conditions were great light breeze from the west ,got to the spot just on sunrise got the berley going the was not much run so the berley trickled out nice and slow first fish hit like a train and felt a lot bigger than it turned out to be, it was a snapper ,more like a squire it went 34cm good eating size after that is was one after another finished up with 7 & or 8 all around the same size threw back 3 or 4 just under 30cm ,

also mixed in with the reds were some bream one went 36cm and some trevaly ,got busted off a couple of times think it could have been big trevs felt a lot of head shaking and strong runs

Things slowed around 8/30 so I went for a spin with S/Ps

2 hours later all I had was 2 small flattys and a good bream that looked like he had been in a few battles [see pic ] well that’s about it got back to the ramp at 11/30

The bream most likely escaped a net when it was young. Happens to a lot of bream and blackfish! Yes plenty of reds around now the swell has sterred it up a little.

hey dutch any been getting caught off the rocks??
